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, north-western Victoria, Australia. This large-scale project signifies a new breakthrough for Arctech Solar to enter the Australia PV market.
This project is expected to be completed by the end of H12019. Considering the irregular terrain, the project will deploy SkySmart which can handle up to 20% N-S slope, use only 219 foundations per MW and provide double pitch drive-through space for module cleaning vehicles. Together with its advantage of efficient factory pre-assembly, SkySmart brings significant economic value to the 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 system’s life span. “
“In the past year, we are committed to delivering innovative and competitive products to meet the specific requirements of 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 to the progress we have made in Australia so far, we will further actively expand our presence in local market. We are setting up a subsidiary in Australia this year with the aim of providing better service to Australian clients.”
Furthermore, Arctech Solar also signed a contract to supply 121MWp Arctracker Pro to Yarranlea PV plant located in Toowoomba, Queensland. As of now, Arctech Solar’s cumulative order of trackers reached about 400MWp in Australia.
