Arctech Solar has ambitious plans. The Chinese manufacturer of tracking and racking systems is currently ranked fourth in worldwide tracker sales. In 2018 the company installed close to 1.7 GW of trackers. The racking and tracking supplier is not only growing and expanding with the global PV market, but is also taking an active leadership role in product innovation.
I have known Arctech’s global business president, Guy Rong, since the time I was based in China for pv magazine (2010-2013). When we first met, Guy was still working for a solar panel manufacturer and it is this closeness to the cell and module industry that led to Arctech’s revolutionary SkySmart tracker in 2018. The Arctech team had carefully watched the technology ramp-up of leading Chinese cell and module manufacturers and anticipated that bifacial glass-glass modules would be the next big step for the industry.
SkySmart’s innovative two-in-portrait design keeps getting better and this May, Arctech launched the next-generation SkySmart2, which further boosts performance while lowering project capex. Optimizing energy output with bifacial panels is a complex undertaking and integrating Arctech’s tracking technology can maximize the output of bifacial arrays in a wide range of environments, including steep slopes of up to 20%. This flexibility opens up new real estate for PV and tracker deployments.
Now celebrating a decade in business, Arctech Solar is forging ahead as a market leader with continued global expansion. The company’s holistic approach to product offerings in the solar PV market will further expand as the manufacturer embarks on BIPV solutions. In the following pages you can read more about Arctech’s technology, its groundbreaking R&D, its projects in various markets, and its customer-centric philosophy. Combining all these strengths, Arctech Solar is poised to increase its market share in the years ahead.
