Solar tracker solutions provider Nextracker has entered into a strategic partnership with Shanghai Electric to supply more than 1 GW of its solar tracker technology, NX Horizon™ for phase-V of Dubai's Mohammed Bin Rashid Solar Park, which is the largest in the Middle East.

The Mohammed Bin Rashid Solar Park, located 50 kms south of Dubai, is owned by the Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) and will be tasked with driving the city towards the ambitious goal of generating 75 per cent of its energy through renewables by 2050.

With close to 40 GW of its solar tracker technology under construction or operating globally, Nextracker has a proven track record of delivering superior photovoltaic (PV) systems on schedule.

Commenting on the development, XiaoRong Yi, President of Shanghai Electric Power Generation Engineering Co. Said that, “we're delighted to work with the number one solar tracker systems provider and leading technology for bifacial yield gains worldwide. Furthermore, Nextracker has a robust supply chain which offers security to the Mohammed Bin Rashid Solar Park project and makes this an invaluable partnership for Shanghai Electric in the Middle East.”  

Further, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Solar Park has a planned production capacity of 1 GW for phase-V and 5 GW in total. The park forms the centerpiece of Dubai's Clean Energy Strategy, driven by a vision to make it the lowest carbon footprint city in the world.

“We are tremendously honored to partner with Shanghai Electric Power Generation Group to help deliver the best performance outcomes for the Dubai Electricity & Water Authority,” said Dan Shugar, CEO of Nextracker.

Commenting on the partnership, Rajit Nanda, Chief Portfolio Management Officer and Interim CIO at ACWA Power said that, “we are pleased to partner with Nextracker for phase five of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Solar Park, a landmark project featuring the latest solar photovoltaic bifacial technologies. We are confident in Nextracker's capabilities to support our shared vision together with Dubai Electricity & Water Authority and Shanghai Electric: to implement the highest quality standards and practices in its delivery and output.”

The solar trackers provider said that it will continue to work closely with Shanghai Electric, providing onsite support through the installation, commissioning and handover phases, with the project due for completion in 2023.
