Array Technologies, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of ground-mounted tracking systems used in solar energy projects, has been awarded a contract for up to 4 GW of trackers from Primoris Services Corporation, a leading provider of specialty contracting services.

The contract includes a commitment to purchase 2.5 GW of DuraTrack® HZ v3 single-axis solar trackers that are scheduled to be used in more than 10 projects across North America and an option to purchase an additional 1.5 GW for other projects. These projects will contribute to the expansion and adoption of solar energy and sustainability efforts. Shipments under the contract will commence in June 2021.

“Primoris Renewable Energy is one of the top solar contractors in the US, and we are pleased to expand our relationship with them,” said Jeff Krantz, Chief Commercial Officer of Array Technologies. “This agreement builds on the 2 GWs that Primoris Renewable Energy has already purchased from Array and underscores the edge our system provides in installation efficiency over our competitors. Through innovations, including single-bolt module clamps and the toolless assembly of certain components, we are helping our EPC customers reduce their labor costs and complete record-breaking projects on time and under budget,” added Mr Krantz.

REGlobal’s Views: The solar tracker market will witness significant growth from single-axis trackers, owing to their high-reliability index, coupled with its high-cost effectiveness.
