Engineering, procurement, and construction firm Andrade Gutierrez and developer Elera Renováveis issued the contract for phase one of the Janaúba PV plant. The solar complex lies near the city of Janaúba, Minas Gerais in Brazil.

Under the agreement, Nextracker will supply its single-axis NX Horizon solar tracker technology, optimised for bifacial panels. Nextracker chief commercial officer Marco Garcia said: “We are honoured to work side by side with our partners, Elera and Andrade Gutierrez to deploy Brazil’s largest solar tracker project.

“Nextracker’s expert local staff combined with our company’s cutting-edge solar tracker and software technologies will ensure that this historic project will perform to its full potential.”

The company claims that the NX Horizon tracker will help Elera Renováveis to maximise Janaúba plant’s performance while minimising operational costs.

Through its regional office in Brazil, Nextracker will offer engineering advisory, commissioning, asset management and advanced data analytics services for preventive maintenance. The company will also train installers in best practice at its Sao Paulo training centre.

Once operational next year, the solar complex will become the largest of its kind in South America.

Andrade Gutierrez Renewables general manager Patricio Pavez said: “We are delighted to be working with Nextracker on the Janaúba solar plant. Nextracker’s extensive expertise in wind design research, development, and engineering and proven bifacial gains were ultimately what led us to select the NX Horizon smart solar tracker.”
