IdeemaTec to supply 101 MW of solar trackers to Jordan


Germany’s IdeemaTec, which specializes in the production of tracking and mounting technology for the solar industry, has announced today the agreement of a 101 MW supply deal to the Jordanian government as part of its growing solar PV program.

IdeemaTec will ship its safeTrack Horizon horizontally tracking systems to two projects in Jordan’s Ma’an Development Area, augmenting a delivery that has already been received for the country’s Oryx projects. Combined, these three deliveries amount to 44 MW of the overall shipment agreement, with a further 24 MW of trackers already on their way to a large-scale solar farm being constructed in Mafraq.

The completion of the supply arrangement will consist of the fulfillment of a final three 11 MW contracts for international clients operating in Jordan. Delivery for these trackers will commence next week, IdeemaTec confirmed.

Axel Hartung, IdeemaTec’s head of sales and marketing, explained that the Ma’an and Mafraq sites present unique challenges for the developers because the locations are crossed by wadis – dry ravines that can flood during the rainy season.

"The safeTrack Horizon makes it possible to build on difficult terrain without needing to conduct time-consuming earthworks with inclines of up to 20 degrees. This technology we have developed has played a key role in our being awarded these projects."

The IdeemaTec safeTrack Horizon trackers deployed to these Jordan projects have a tracking range of 45° and 55°. Once delivery has been completed by December, IdeemaTec will boast a tracker market share in the country of 50%.

Globally, IdeemaTec has established quite a network of projects in some of the leading and most exciting solar markets, including installations in the U.S., Spain, South Africa, Greece, Mexico and India, achieving a cumulative installed capacity in excess of 500 MW.

For Jordan, the solar journey is well on its way. In September, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources announced the winners of its second 200 MW solar PV tender – a bid that attracted record-low tariffs of $0.0613, $0.0649, $0.0691 and $0.0767 per kWh for four 50 MW solar PV projects.
