Array Technologies breaks into Australian market with 130 MW order

In light of the country’s solar boom, Array Technologies is breaking into the Australian market to provide its tracking solutions to large-scale utility projects.

Agreements have been signed with the Australian unit of French renewable energy company Neoen for its recently unveiled PV projects in the state of New South Wales. These include the Parkes (66 MW), Griffith (36 MW) and Dubbo (28 MW) solar farms, with Bouygues Construction Australia named as EPC contractor.

Construction on all three solar projects is penciled in for completion by year’s end.

Furthermore, on the heels of its recent expansion to the MENAT region, Array Technologies is now opening a Sydney office.

The U.S. company said that it is delighted to get into the “particularly appealing market” of Australia, adding that more utility-scale announcements are on the horizon.

Australia’s utility-scale solar pipeline is booming with conceivable growth of 4 GW over the next five years, on the wings of declining component and construction costs, as well as deployment of efficiency-boosting technologies like tracking.
