NEXTracker provides tracker technology for 750MW solar project in Mexico

CTBR Staff Writer Published 04 May 2017

NEXTracker has provided its advanced tracker technology for the 750MW solar power plant in the Western Hemisphere.

The grid-connected project will provide energy to the Northern Mexico region.

Expected to become operational by mid-2018, NEXTracker has already supplied around 200MW of advanced single-axis trackers to the project.

Designed to produce around 1,700 gigawatt hours (GWh) per annum, the solar power plant is expected to curb around 780,000 tons of CO2 in a year.

The energy generated in the project will be supplied to around 1.3 million households in Mexico.

NEXTracker said that it produce a range of structural, mechanical and electrical components locally for this project.

NEXTracker CEO Dan Shugar said: “Mexico, along with India, Australia and the Middle East is part of a new wave of renewable energy markets poised for significant growth over the next few years.

“Much of that growth will be supported by single-axis solar tracking technology. NEXTracker’s proven experience, and advanced software and tracker technology, help solar power plants operate more effectively with greater energy gains.”

Asolmex general secretary Israel Hurtado said: “The unprecedented scale of this plant, combined with local manufacturing, solar job development and industry leading technology such as NEXTracker’s single-axis trackers, represents a huge boost to help us reach a 35 percent renewable energy target by 2024.”
