Trungnam Group will use single-axis trackers for a 258MW solar project located in Ninh Thuan Province, Vietnam, which is claimed to be the first tracker-based PV project in the country and the largest with trackers in Southeast Asia.

The project is expected to start commercial operation in June 2019.

Nguyen Tam Tien, CEO of Trung nam Group, said: “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 are happy to work with Arctech Solar and believe this project will have higher economic returns compared with fixed mounting structures by adopting Arctech's innovative Skyline tracking system.”
