Chinese solar tracker manufacturer Arctech has signed a supply contract with China Energy Engineering Corporation (CEEC) to provide 1GW of solar trackers in Uzbekistan.

Arctech will provide its SkyWings solar tracking system for the two projects in Qashqadaryo Viloyati and Buxoro in Uzbekistan. The company said the system mounts a synchronous multi-point drive mechanism which can improve the wind resistance performance of the modules. The system also has high stability at all tilts, adapting to the optimal tilt angle of the cleaning robot, as well as the frequent sandstorms and dry weather in Uzbekistan.

The two projects will add 2,300GWh of electricity annually,

“This project is the first large-scale new energy project implemented by Chinese enterprises in Central Asia after the China-Central Asia Summit. Together, we aim to be instrumental in shaping Central Asia’s new energy landscape,” said Lin Xiaodan, senior vice president of CEEC.

Since the beginning of this year, Arctech has secured several projects in multiple countries. It signed an agreement to provide 242MW worth of solar trackers for an upcoming facility in the Indian state of Rajasthan, and announced the news to provide 1.5GW of SkyLine II solar trackers for a project in Saudi Arabia in April.
