ARCTECH TO SUPPLY 500 MW SOLAR TRACKING SYSTEM IN UZBEKISTAN
Arctech, the world’s leading solar tracking, racking, and BIPV provider, announced the signing of a major contract with China Machinery Engineering Corporation (CMEC) for the supply of a 500MW solar tracking system in Sherabad of Surkhandarya Province in Uzbekistan.
Arctech will provide SkyLine II solar tracking system for this project. This stiff tracker mounts a synchronous multi-point drive mechanism. It has a wind stow threshold of 22m/s, which allows it to track the sun for more hours and effectively increase power generation and create greater economic value for project owners. The rigidity provided by the multi-point drive mechanism also allows to safely stow to 0-degree, which is critical to prevent module cracks and damages.
The Sherabad solar PV power project is a ground-mounted solar project which is planned over 600 hectares. It has officially entered the comprehensive construction phase and is expected to be connected to the grid by the end of 2023. After completion, the project is expected to generate 1,040,000MWh of electricity and supply enough clean energy to power 300,000 households. It effectively solves the problem of energy shortage in Uzbekistan, reduces dependence on fossil energy, promotes the transformation and upgrading of the local social energy structure, and boosts the development of “Green Silk Road”.
