Arctech Solar signs landmark deal for Victorian project

Arctech Solar has inked a deal with Biosar Australia, a subsidiary of Greek construction group AKTOR, for a 256.5MWp project located in Ouyen, Victoria.

The solar project, expected to be complete by July 2019, signifies a breakthrough for Arctech Solar to enter the Australian PV market.

The project will deploy SkySmart, which can handle a N-S slope of 20 per cent, uses only 219 foundations per MW and provides double pitch drive-through space for module cleaning vehicles.

With its advantage of efficient factory pre-assembly, SkySmart brings economic value to contractors by minimising the field installation labour cost on-site.

“We are now working with Arctech Solar to make this solar power plant economically more competitive,” Biosar director Mr Polychronopoulos said.

“By combining Arctech’s high-efficiency solar tracking technology and Biosar’s experience in engineering and construction, we are confident this project will maximize the solar energy generation over the system’s life span. ”

Archtech Solar international business president Guy Rong said the company was committed to delivering innovative and competitive products to meet the requirements of the Australian market.

“This 256.5MWp project can be seen as a vote of confidence from contractors and investors on our products and our rich project experience,” Mr Rong said.

“We are thrilled about the progress we have made in Australia so far and will further expand our presence there.

“We are setting up a subsidiary in Australia this year with the aim of providing better service to Australian clients.”

Arctech Solar also signed a contract to supply the 121MW Arctracker Pro to Yarranlea PV plant in Toowoomba, Queensland.
