India-based renewable power engineering and construction firm PES Engineers (PES) has signed 400MW master supply agreement with Nexttracker, a provider of single axis solar trackers, in India.

Under the three-year agreement, Nextracker and PES will jointly deliver trackers and also provide installation services to major construction projects in the country.

PES managing director Vasudeva Prasad said: "After reviewing favorable 3rd party evaluations of Nextracker’s technology, we found the self-powered tracker to be ideal for maximizing the energy production potential of solar sites throughout India."

The team is expected to commence first project under the agreementin central India next month.

"Its independent row architecture and self-powered design will help us deploy more photovoltaics to a wider variety of sites in less time – for less cost.

"We will also benefit from NEXTracker’s core competencies including system design, commissioning, and O&M support," Prasad added.
