SHANGHAI: Arctech Solar has inked a deal with Biosar Australia Pty Ltd., a subsidiary of Greek construction group AKTOR, for a 256.5MWp project located in Ouyen, Victoria, Australia. This project signifies a breakthrough for Arctech Solar to enter the Australian PV market.
This project is expected to be completed by July 2019. The project will deploy SkySmart, which can handle a N-S slope of 20%, uses only 219 foundations per MW and provides double pitch drive-through space for module cleaning vehicles. With its advantage of efficient factory pre-assembly, SkySmart brings economic value to contractors by minimizing the field installation labor cost on site.
“We are now working with Arctech Solar to make this solar power plant economically more competitive,” said Mr. Polychronopoulos, Director of Biosar. “By combining Arctech’s high-efficiency solar tracking technology and Biosar’s experience in engineering and construction, we are confident that this project will maximize the solar energy generation over the system’s life span. “
“We are committed to delivering innovative and competitive products to meet the specific requirements of the Australian market,” said Mr. Guy Rong, the president of Arctech Solar’s international business. “This 256.5MWp project can be seen as a vote of confidence from contractors and investors on our products and our rich project experience. We are thrilled about the progress we have made in Australia so far and will further expand our presence there. We are setting up a subsidiary in Australia this year with the aim of providing better service to Australian clients.”
Arctech Solar also signed a contract to supply the 121MWp Arctracker Pro to Yarranlea PV plant in Toowoomba, Queensland. Currently, Arctech Solar’s cumulative order of trackers reaches about 400MWp in Australia.
