Arctech Solar, a provider of solar tracking, racking and BIPV systems, has delivered its 1P tracker SkyLine to a 3.2 GW solar farm in the Chinese province of Qinghai. The project was recently connected to the grid.
The 3.2 GW solar park is connected to the world’s first ultra-high voltage line (UHV), which supplies 100% renewable energy from northwest China to the densely populated eastern provinces. It is also the world’s largest single renewable energy project with the shortest construction time. The complex sits at an average elevation of 3,200 meters in notoriously harsh weather and requires the solar tracking system to work in locations with challenging terrain and extreme weather.
“Arctech delivered the first batch of trackers within a month of completing the blueprint,” said Xue Wenming, Artech’s deputy managing director. “The punctual delivery and efficient installation ensured that the power generation project went online on schedule.”
Arctech supplied approximately 1.3 GW of its SkyLine tracking systems. With an excellent adaptability to the terrain, SkyLine can be used on north / south slopes of up to 20%. Equipped with the AI Smart Control Box independently developed by Arctech, SkyLine can significantly increase performance by effectively overcoming shadow effects.
