Since its entering the Indian market in 2015, the company has relied on its diversified global supply chain and customer-centric approach to deliver, commission and support solar energy developments in the Indian market with an accumulated portfolio of 3.5 GW, lighting the way to a brighter, smarter future for clean energy in India. According to Wood Mackenzie, the company was India’s largest supplier of solar trackers in 2020 and held a 45% market share in 2021.
In early September, the company opened a 3 GW solar tracker factory in India that will produce all of the major components of its solar tracker products. Jash Energy has modeled after Arctech’s existing Chinese manufacturing base, in both the automatic production line and manufacturing management system. It is equipped with an advanced automatic production line for Arctech’s patented torque tube, said the company.
“Arctech always sees India as our second home base after China. We started our operations in India in 2015 and have shipped 3.5 GW since then,” said Chen. “In years 2017 and 2018, the market was very quiet for trackers, but we made a grand comeback in 2019 by signing a 1.7 GW order in India. The increasing use of bifacial modules and decline in the prices of modules made more sense to use trackers now, by having Jash Energy the joint venture production plant, we can guarantee a shorter delivery timeline, quicker response to needs, and most of all, a more competitive pricing strategy enabling us a better competitive edge in India.”
