NEXTracker hits 100 MW weekly shipments for advanced solar trackers


NEXTracker, the Fremont, California-headquartered solar tracker company, is now shipping 100 MW of its advanced solar tracker worldwide each week, and now has in excess of 1.8 GW of advanced trackers in operation or under construction across five continents.

Growth in a number of markets in countries with high levels of solar irradiation has aided NEXTracker’s expansion, with demand for the technology rising in regions where their efficacy is widely appreciated.

According to NEXTracker CEO Dan Shugar, more and more EPCs, developers and owners are understanding the benefits of tracker technology, and are opting to choose NEXTracker because of the advancements the company has made refining its trackers to generate higher energy, yield, offer greater durability and deliver greater savings.

The CEO also confirmed that NEXTracker is to expand its on-the-ground manufacturing and operational presence in new markets. “Having a growing global presence enables us to readily secure manufacturing materials; ramp up quality management system and local supply chain capabilities, and deploy quality systems very rapidly to meet increased customer demand,” Shugar said.

In June NEXTracker signed a 1 GW supply agreement with power generation contractor Blattner Energy, which will see the delivery of NEXTracker’s single axis tracker to various North American projects over the next two years.

Blattner Energy director of solar Stephen Jones said of the milestone: “I am very satisfied with the deliveries we have already received and quality customer service that NEXTracker has provided on our solar projects.”
