According to information published on Arctech Solar’s website on July 10, the company has recently inked its first deal in Vietnam with Trung Nam Group for a 258MWp solar power plant project located in Ninh Thuan province.

According to the agreement, Arctech Solar will deploy its Arctech Skyline tracking system to this project. The Skyline tracking system can handle up to 20 per cent N-S slope with special designed torque tubes and a one-button commissioning function. All of these technologies are optimised to work in concert, giving Skyline better land adaptability and making it more cost-effective and quicker to install than regular trackers.

Nguyen Tam Tien, CEO of Trung Nam Group, stated, "This landmark project marks a milestone in Vietnam's journey to grow the clean energy industry. We were cautious to select suppliers for this key equipment. We believe this project will have higher economic returns compared with fixed mounting structures by adopting the Arctech innovative Skyline tracking system."

Previously, on July 7, Trung Nam Group organised the groundbreaking ceremony for the 204MW solar power plant.

The power plant, the nation’s largest solar power plant to date, will have over 705,000 solar panels, and once operational in next June, it will produce a maximum output of approximately 450 million kWh each year, said Nguyen Tam Thinh, chairman of Trung Nam Group.

The plant is also billed as the nation’s first “integrated sustainable energy project,” utilising both solar panels as well as turbines to harness wind energy.

Arctech Solar is a world-leading manufacturer and provider of solar tracking solutions and racking systems. In the past nine years, Arctech Solar set up overseas subsidiaries/service centres in the US, India, Japan, Spain, and Mexico.

As of the end of 2017, Arctech Solar has cumulatively installed 13.5GW capacity and completed 800 projects in 15 countries. With a production capacity of 6GW and 4GW in fixed mounting structure and tracker field, respectively, (a total annual capacity of 10GW), Arctech Solar is a reliable partner in the global PV tracking and racking industry.
