Arctech Solar has signed its first deal in Vietnam with Trungnam Group for a 258MWp project located in Ninh Thuan Province. This agreement not only marks the first tracking system project in Vietnam but also creates the single-largest tracking system project in Southeast Asia. The 258MWp project is expected to start commercial operation in June 2019. Given the project is being set up in irregular terrain, Arctech Skyline tracking system will be deployed to this project.
Skyline tracking system can handle an up to 20% N-S slope with special designed torque tubes and a one button commissioning function. All of these technologies are optimized to work in concert, giving Skyline better land adaptability and making it more cost-effective and quicker to install compared with regular trackers. Trungnam Group CEO Nguyen Tam Tien commented: “This landmark project marks a milestone in Vietnam’s journey to grow the clean energy industry. We were cautious to select suppliers for this key equipment. We are happy to work with Arctech Solar and believe this project will have higher economic returns compared with fixed mounting structures by adopting Arctech innovative Skyline tracking system.”
Guy Rong, president of Arctech Solar’s international business, said: “We are excited to be a part of this landmark project. Skyline, as a horizontal single-axis tracker that includes best-in-class technologies for great performance and rapid installation, is the most suitable tracker for this project, and it will have significant market potential in Vietnam. We look forward to working closely with Trungnam and the other industry players in the local market and continuing our commitments in the development of renewable resources in Vietnam.”
