Nextracker’s all-terrain solar tracker systems selected for Al Kahfah Solar Park

by Madaline Dunn

Intelligent solar tracker and software solutions company Nextracker has been selected by ACWA Power and Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T) to provide its all-terrain tracker NX Horizon-XTR for a 1.17 GW installation at Al Kahfah Solar Power Plant in Saudi Arabia’s Central Province.

The plant project is being led by Badeel and ACWA Power, with construction from L&T, and one of three such projects between Badeel and ACWA. 

Nextracker’s NX Horizon-XTR smart solar tracker systems will be deployed to prevent the need for costly land grading, conforming to the natural terrain while reducing environmental impact, it was shared. 

It was explained that with the 1.17 GW order, this project will be Nextracker’s largest deployment of the technology in a single order to date. 

It already has over 10 GW of smart solar trackers either operational or under fulfilment across the region.

The company has also previously partnered with ACWA Power and L&T on the Sudair Solar PV Plant (906 MW) to provide its intelligent solar trackers, and has extended its domestic content and capacity development program in the Kingdom. 

Dan Shugar, Nextracker founder and CEO, said: “We are honored to partner again with both ACWA Power and Larsen & Toubro Ltd for another significant project in the region. Our partnership with these two industry leaders has contributed greatly to Nextracker’s local commitment with over 10 GW of solar trackers already installed or under fulfilment across the MEIA region’s rapidly expanding solar energy market. We are confident that Nextracker will contribute greatly to the Al Kahfah plant—yet another example of Saudi government leadership in the energy transition and to the dominance of solar technology driving the transition to renewables in the region.”
