PVHardware To Supply Solar Trackers For 805MW  L&T Project In Saudi Arabia

PVH, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of solar trackers, has announced the announce the signing of another major contract with Larsen & Toubro (L&T) for the supply of 805 MW on a solar project in Saudi Arabia at Ar Rass City.

The project will be located in Saudi Arabia Qassim province near Ar Rass city. It will be included within The National Renewable Energy Program and overseen by the Kingdom’s Ministry of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources (MEIM) as a strategic initiative under Saudi Vision 2030.

“Ar Rass is an important milestone in PVH’s trajectory in Saudi Arabia” says Surmai Kaushik, VP Sales, AMEA at PVH. “In large projects like this we showcase the strength that local manufacturing and expertise of working in extremely harsh environment brings to our products and onsite services. We have worked very hard to ensure that our product showcases the most optimized design working alongside the EPC to lower the LCOE while maximizing the local content”.

All trackers for the Ar Rass solar project will be sourced from PVH’s recently renovated manufacturing facility in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The trackers are specifically designed to withstand high temperatures and sandstorms while the advanced safety features will ensure its stable operation and corrosion resistance with an estimated life of 25 years.

PVH has successfully deployed over 28 GW across five continents, claiming a global market share of more than 10%. The partnership  with L&T, has already generated an impressive pipeline of 8 GW in Saudi Arabia.

The middle east market remains a booming market for trackers, with all large projects opting for the same, unlike in markets like India until recently. It has taken the increased share of bifacials and higher output modules to shift almost all markets towards use of trackers in larger utility projects now, as the ROI became manageable with higher putput.
