Arctech awarded contract for 500MW Manah I PV Plant in Oman

by Madaline Dunn

Arctech, a Chinese solar tracker manufacturer, has signed a contract for the 500MW Manah I power plant project in Oman, following a successful bid for the 588MW Manah II PV project in Oman earlier in 2023.

The Manah I project is located in Oman’s Ad Dakhiliyah Governorate, an area that is frequently impacted by extreme weather such as heavy rain, strong winds, and sandstorms.

To navigate the challenges associated with its complex terrain, the project has adopted Arctech’s flagship 1P SkyLine II tracker.

The SkyLine II has a multi-point drive mechanism and patented triple D torque tube, which enhances system stability under desert wind loads.

The tracker’s wind stow speed reaches 22m/s, and the highly stable torque tube allows a post span of up to 10m, reducing post quantities by around 20 per cent and lowering civil work costs, it was shared.

Further, four different module heights were customised to better adapt to the site’s topography.

The tracker-bifacial module combination also creates a synergistic 1+1>2 effect to boost energy yields.

Additionally, the purlins underwent bearing capacity optimisation for better cleaning robot compatibility, minimising soiling losses and boosting generation performance.

It was shared that the Manah I and II projects are key to accelerating Oman’s energy transition and “an important practice” for Arctech in pursuing Belt and Road cooperation.
