NEXTracker has provided its advanced tracker technology for the 750MW solar power plant in the Western Hemisphere.

The grid-connected project will provide energy to the Northern Mexico region.

Expected to become operational by mid-2018, NEXTracker has already supplied around 200MW of advanced single-axis trackers to the project.

Designed to produce around 1,700 gigawatt hours (GWh) per annum, the solar power plant is expected to curb around 780,000 tons of CO2 in a year.

The energy generated in the project will be supplied to around 1.3 million households in Mexico.

NEXTracker said that it produce a range of structural, mechanical and electrical components locally for this project.

NEXTracker CEO Dan Shugar said: “Mexico, along with India, Australia and the Middle East is part of a new wave of renewable energy markets poised for significant growth over the next few years.

“Much of that growth will be supported by single-axis solar tracking technology. NEXTracker’s proven experience, and advanced software and tracker technology, help solar power plants operate more effectively with greater energy gains.”

Asolmex general secretary Israel Hurtado said: “The unprecedented scale of this plant, combined with local manufacturing, solar job development and industry leading technology such as NEXTracker’s single-axis trackers, represents a huge boost to help us reach a 35 percent renewable energy target by 2024.”
