NEXTracker signs 1 GW supply agreement with Blattner Energy


NEXTracker, the Fremont, California-based provider of solar PV trackers, has signed a 1 GW supply agreement with Blattner Energy to deliver its single axis trackers to the EPC’s North American projects over the next two years.

Blattner Energy director of solar Stephen Jones remarked that NEXTracker’s single axis trackers boast a durability that will ensure the long-term operation of their solar projects, which are being rolled out in a number of locations across the U.S. The EPC currently has more than 25 GW of clean energy projects under its belt in North America.

Dan Shugar, NEXTracker CEO, called Blattner Energy one of the “most distinguished installers of renewable power generation systems in North America”, and added: "Deploying NEXTracker generates more energy and reduces installation time with a repeatable, self-powered system design that is flexible to varying site conditions."

NEXTracker has struck a number of large supply deals across both the U.S. and emerging markets in the Americas in recent months, not least Honduras, where it will work with SunEdison to install 82 MW of its single axis trackers at two large-scale solar parks being constructed in the Central American nation.

The growth of the large-scale solar sector – which is set to grow by a further 32 GW in the U.S. alone between now and 2017 – is serving to boost the tracker market in the region.
