The First Application of Arctracker Pro in Africa (Arctech Solar)

The Republic of Namibia is facing an acute deficit of electric power. More than half of the nations electricity is imported. The local power company aims to achieve self-sufficiency in electricity by vigorously developing renewable energy. On the basis of the actual field landform and topography, Arctracker Pro was special designed and applied to this project, with its reliability of redundancy design and rotating ranging from -45 to 45 degrees, Arctech is expecting a significant project energy yield increase from this project. It is also the first solar tracker project in southern Namibia so far.

The president of Arctech Solar’s international business, Mr. Guy Rong said that with the implementation of the Belt and Road initiative, Arctech Solar is responsive to the beneficiary policy, and actively implemented the ‘going global’ strategy by assisting to promote the development of African Solar PV industry. Further to this, Mr. Guy Rong indicated: “This project in Namibia could be a good start for us to build a strong relationship with local partners in the solar PV industry. We expect the win-win cooperation with both foreign-funded enterprises and Chinese enterprises in Africa, and we hope our solar tracking and racking systems could bring extraordinary effects to the countries and regions, that are along the route of the Belt and Road. More importantly, we could help local power company to develop and make most use of solar energy.”
