US solar tracker supplier Array Technologies will supply 1GW of its DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis solar trackers to solar developer Primergy Solar’s solar and storage Gemini project in Nevada, USA.

Deliveries will start during Q2 2022, with the project set to be completed by the end of 2023. Power will be supplied to utility Nevada Energy through a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA).

The project, estimated to cost more than US$1 billion, will be able to store more than 1.4GWh of solar energy and will allow the PV plant to discharge energy during high demand and when solar energy availability is scarce.

Travis Rose, chief revenue officer at Array Technologies, said: “Project Gemini is historic for its size and scale, and we are well-positioned to optimize it for maximum energy generation while limiting installation time, LCOE and maintenance requirements.”

Gemini’s project will use an energy management system (EMS) that will determine the optimum cost of discharging the energy to the grid either from the battery or directly from the solar panels, and will do so by incorporating daily data.

Kiewit has been selected as the engineering, procurement and construction company for the project.

Earlier this year, Array completed its acquisition of Spanish tracker STI Norland which will help the American company to expand its markets in Europe and Brazil among others. PV Tech Premium sat down with Array last year after the acquisition was announced and spoke with its CMO, Erica Brinker, on the deal’s repercussions and how it will boost the company to expand globally.

This special webinar will look at one of the most important changes impacting PV manufacturing today; how to establish and sustain new facilities around the world. For more than two decades, policy-makers have grappled with the challenges of nurturing domestic manufacturing sectors. Many countries have tried to create domestic sectors: Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, India, Europe and the U.S. But success stories have been rare. Mistakes seem to be repeated. And all the while, Chinese dominance of the industry has only increased. However, in the past 2-3 years, new drivers have emerged that suggest the dream of a global PV manufacturing ecosystem could be a reality. Join us as we shed light on this.

PV Tech has been running PV ModuleTech Conferences since 2017. PV ModuleTech USA, on 21-22 May 2024, will be our third PV ModulelTech conference dedicated to the U.S. utility scale solar sector. The event will gather the key stakeholders from solar developers, solar asset owners and investors, PV manufacturing, policy-making and and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out the PV module supply channels to the U.S. out to 2025 and beyond.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
