Array Technologies, one of the world’s largest providers of utility-scale solar tracking technology, will supply its DuraTrack solar trackers for a 750-MWDC project in Ohio, developed by EDF Renewables North America.
The project will be installed on 4,500 acres of land and equipped with over 1.4 million modules across more than 13,000 tracker rows. The project is expected to be one of the largest in the United States, capable of producing enough clean energy to power 116,000 average Ohio homes a year.
“By winning this project, Array is further solidifying its position as a leader in the utility-scale solar industry and demonstrating our ability to consistently deliver quality products on time for our customers,” said Kevin Hostetler, CEO of Array Technologies. “This project is a win-win-win for the county in Ohio, delivering clean energy into the local power grid, providing hundreds of new construction jobs and generating a revenue stream from the lease agreements and tax revenue all while boosting economic development in the area and serving as a STEM resource for students interested in science, sustainability and environmental learning.”
The project is expected to be operational in 2024, with Array initiating tracker deliveries in January 2023. The project’s engineering, procurement and construction is being overseen by Blattner Energy, a member of the Quanta Services family. Blattner is a diversified renewable energy engineering contractor providing construction solutions nationwide.
“This supply agreement is the latest between EDF Renewables and Array,” said Art Del Rio, VP of solar and storage strategic procurement at EDF Renewables North America. “The strength of this deeply established partnership with Array and EDF Renewables continues to grow with the execution of another tracker supply agreement for leading technology.”
