Solar tracker company Scorpius Trackers, a subsidiary of the Gensol Group, announced that it had reached its milestone of 1000 MW + in contracted orders across India, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Uganda.  

The company’s client portfolio includes ReNew, Hero Future, Shapoorji, Tata Power, Engine, Sterling Wilson, Azure Power, Kosol Energy and. Notably, the company achieved the highest performing tracker generation at a Commercial and Industrial (C&I) site with the client Ajanta Clocks, Gujarat, with more than 21L units per MWp using mono facial modules.

“Scorpius Trackers has established itself as a frontrunner in delivering reliable, bankable single-axis solar trackers. The company’s cutting-edge solar tracking technology featuring maintenance-free bearings, real-time GPS-enabled tracking, IoT (Internet of Things), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), has set new benchmarks for efficiency and performance in solar power generation,” the company said in a statement.  

Shailesh Vaidya, CEO of Scorpius Trackers, “Crossing the 1000 MW+ mark of contracted orders is not just a milestone but a testament to our unwavering dedication to providing best-in-class solar tracking solutions that enhance efficiency, reliability, and cost-effectiveness for our clients. This achievement is a result of our team’s hard work and dedication over the years. We remain committed to collaborating with global and local partners to accelerate the world’s energy transition journey.”  

Gensol had recently acquired Scorpius Trackers, a solar tracking technology company primarily engaged in designing, developing, marketing, and servicing single-axis trackers for solar power generation to enhance its offerings in the renewable energy sector.

Established in 2012, Gensol Engineering Limited specializes in engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services, focusing on the solar power sector. Gensol has demonstrated expertise in executing turnkey projects globally, having installed both ground-mounted and rooftop solar installations totaling more than 600 MW. Venturing beyond solar, Gensol has established an electric vehicle (EV) production facility in Pune. 

Solar tracker market in India 

Scorpius now faces stiff competition from existing local and global rivals in India. For example, US-based solar tracker company Nextracker recently announced achieving 10 GW of contracted orders in India. Another China-based solar tracker firm, Archtech, operates in more than 40 countries, including India. Archtech also opened its 3GW production facility in 2022. 

Solar trackers allow solar panels to move on their axis to achieve higher efficiency. Mainly used by utility-scale projects in India, several Indian solar project developers have roped in their services to boost their efficiency. Several of them, like Sterling and Wilson, have used the services of multiple tracker firms in different projects, including Scorpius and Nextracker.
