Ideematec Announces World’s Largest Single-Axis Tracker Solar Project

The global solar tracking manufacturer will supply 800MW of its Bifacial Horizon plus™ systems for Qatar’s leading landmark solar project in Al Kharsaah

DOHA, Qatar, November 3, 2020 – Ideematec, the leading global supplier of solar tracking systems, today announced that it will supply 800 megawatts (MW) of its Bifacial optimized Horizon Plus™ solar tracker for the world’s biggest power plant using a two-in-portrait (2P) single axis tracker.

The project is located in AL-Kharsaah, approximately 80 kilometers west of the capital Doha. The solar facility will generate enough clean energy to meet ten percent of peak electricity demand in the state of Qatar. It is on schedule to be fully operational before the 2022 World Cup and will support the Qatar National Vision 2030 for sustainable development by facilitating local decarbonization. The project is the third-largest solar plant in the world and the first utility-scale solar project in Qatar.

“We are honored to be chosen by leading global companies to supply our Horizon Plus™ solar tracker for this record-breaking project,” said Mario Eckl, CEO of Ideematec. “This milestone power plant will strengthen our Middle-East and North African (MENA) portfolio, which is on pace to total 1.6 gigawatts (GW) by 2021.”

To boost energy production and reduce maintenance costs, the plant will be one of the first in the world to utilize robots for ongoing and proactive cleaning. This is made possible by the tracker’s record-breaking length of 190 meters. Ideematec will support the project’s installation and on-site logistics and commissioning.

Ideematec has supplied trackers for some of the largest PV plants worldwide, including projects in Australia, Jordan, Morocco and Europe. In 2019 the company successfully delivered four flagship projects, each generating a significant contribution of solar energy to their region. With more than 860 MW trackers already delivered and in-operation in the MENA region, Ideematec’s Horizon Trackers are now stabilizing and exceeding their 2019 ranking as third leading supplier in the market.
