Amara Raja has been executing the 306 MWp ground-mounted utility-scale Nokh solar power plant spread over 1,850 hectares (approximately equivalent to 3,500 contiguous football fields) in Rajasthan.
Nextracker said that its optimized bifacial tracker design has been proven to increase energy yield as validated by third-party test laboratories in this seminal bifacial and solar tracker white paper.
Commenting on the development, Dwarakanadha Reddy, Business Head Projects Division at Amara Raja Power Systems, said “In line with the government’s vision to bring more renewables into the energy mix, we are delighted to collaborate with Nextracker, the global leader in solar tracker technology, on the landmark Nokh solar project.”
“We are proud to offer this advanced technology to NTPC, and Nextracker is the right local partner to help us achieve lower levelized cost of energy (LCOE) over the lifetime of the plant due to its bifacial optimized design,” Reddy added.
On the partnership, Dan Shugar, founder and CEO of Nextracker, said “we are grateful for this opportunity to partner with Amara Raja and India’s largest power public sector utility, NTPC Limited.”
“With a gigawatt of our high performing solar tracker systems operating on 24 projects across India and close to 200 local staff to support design and engineering, local content and manufacturing, sales and aftermarket services, Nextracker is committed to delivering high performing systems to our customers and supporting India’s goal to ensure that 50 per cent of the country’s energy requirement comes from renewable resources,” Dan Shugar further said.
NTPC has increased its renewable energy investments in recent years and aims to achieve over 60 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2032 accounting for 50 per cent of its overall generation capacity.
Meanwhile, the project is expected to be operational by October 2023 as the first shipments to arrive during the first quarter next year.
