GameChange Solar has completed its first Genius Tracker™ project in India for Tata Power. The 394 MW project has been located 110 km from Ahmedabad in Gujarat.

This solar plant is expected to supply clean solar power to the equivalent of 376,000 households.

The company claimed that this is the largest solar project utilizing single-axis trackers in India and GameChange Solar’s Genius Tracker™ 1P was selected for the project because of the challenging ground conditions and high winds experienced in the area. The Genius Tracker™ is engineered specifically for these conditions.

The project, which was only partially constructed at the time, withstood the Tauktae cyclone when it hit in May, 2021. This was the strongest cyclone to strike Gujarat since 1998 and had wind speeds in excess of 160 km/h and uprooted trees and electricity poles. Due to the quality engineering and construction of the Genius Tracker™, no damage was caused to the portion of the facility installed at that time.

Also, GameChange Solar’s more than 20% of the materials for the Genius Tracker™ came from within the country, and the company has been targeting to locally source more than 50% of the parts for its systems on all future projects in India.

Commenting on the development, Vikas Bansal, Chief Operating Officer, International for GameChange Solar, said, “we were pleased to have Genius Tracker™ selected for the Ahmedabad project. We are looking forward to bringing GameChange Solar’s cutting-edge Genius Tracker™ technology to more projects in India. As a global leader in the solar industry, we will strive to make an impact on the clean energy supply throughout the Indian subcontinent.”
