Arctech, the world's leading tracking, racking, and BIPV solutions provider, announced that it had signed a 2.1GW trackers supply agreement with China Machinery Engineering Corporation on 3rd September, for Al Dhafra PV2 PV power plant in Abu Dhabi, UAE. When completed, the plant will be the largest of its kind in the Middle East, and can supply enough electricity to power 160,000 local families while offsetting emissions by more than 3.6 million tons of CO2/year.

The project site is abundant in sunlight; however, its inclement natural conditions of high temperature, raging sandstorms and highly corrosive environment propose harsh requirements for the reliability of tracking systems. 

After a thorough assessment, Arctech was selected as the tracker supplier and the project will adopt Arctech's flagship product SkySmart II, the first IEC-certificated multi-point parallel drive tracking system, which can cope with the harsh natural environment and reduce the cost per KWh of the project significantly.

At the supply agreement signing ceremony, Arctech and CMEC also signed a framework agreement on strategic cooperation. Under the agreement, two companies will strengthen in-depth cooperation in global markets based on mutual benefits and win-win principles.

"Founded in 1978, CMEC is a core subsidiary of China National Machinery Industry Corporation Ltd (Sinomach), a Global Fortune 500 company, and China's first industrial and trading company. As a world-renowned EPC, it enjoys more than 40 years of experience in the international engineering industry with business covering 47 countries and regions worldwide," said Yan Weihua, General Manager of the 4th Complete Plants Division at CMEC.

Being one of the major suppliers of CMEC, Arctech has partnered with CMEC on various PV projects. "To win the largest PV project in the Middle East, Arctech invested thousands of hours of engineer resources from offices in China, UAE, and Spain, analyzed dozens of tracking system configurations, and submitted more than 30,000 pages of technical documents. Fortunately, our efforts were highly recognized by CMEC and all the relevant parties, for which I'm truly grateful for their trust and support and show my appreciation to our technical, sales, and project teams for their hard work." said Guy Rong, President of Global Business at Arctech.
