NEXTracker Inc. (Fremont, California, U.S.) on January 11th, 2017 announced it has partnered with CleanMax Solar (Mumbai, India) to supply 30 MW of its advanced NX Horizon single-axis trackers to a solar photovoltaic (PV) project in Tamil Nadu.

The grid-connected PV project will deliver solar power to a major IT consumer in Chennai, under a long-term contract with CleanMax Solar. Set up under the “Group Captive Scheme”, 100% of the electricity generated will be consumed in Tamil Nadu. The system is expected to be operational by the end of Q1, 2017.

Traditionally a non-tracker market, India’s solar tracker market is expected to grow exponentially by 2021, amounting to 31% of ground mount projects, up from 7% in 2016, according to The Global PV Tracker Landscape 2016, by GTM Research.

NEXTracker recently supplied India’s largest solar tracker project to date – the 105 MW Adani Power Plant in Punjab.
