GameChange Solar has announced that is has surpassed the 10 GW milestone for sales since the company was founded in 2012. The company’s rapid expansion has been prompted by growth in both its fixed-tilt and tracker product lines for MaxSpan and Genius Tracker respectively.
“Customer adoption has been widespread globally due to the firms’ cost-effective and fast installing systems which have surpassed bankability requirements for even the most stringent project owning utilities and IPPs worldwide,” the firm stated.
Derick Botha, Chief Commercial Officer at GameChange Solar, said “we are gratified to pass the 10 GW milestone and look forward to further growth and continuing to be a leading innovator in the market. We are driven by our mission to reduce costs for utility-scale solar projects in order to drive the industry’s growth globally.”
In December 2019, the firm had announced that it had received orders for more than 200 MW of Genius Tracker systems in South America.
Arturo Herrero, Chief Business Development Officer at GameChange Solar, had said at the time “we are excited to have been selected for these important projects in the LATAM market. As the global quality leader for single-axis trackers, we anticipate continued significant growth into leading markets worldwide. These projects push us over 3 GW of orders received in 2019.”
In June 2019, we had reported that NEXTracker, a Flex company, had announced its latest industry milestone, with 20 gigawatts (GW) of its smart solar trackers delivered and under active fulfilment globally. The firm was named the No.1 supplier of photovoltaic (PV) tracker systems globally in 2018, a title it has held for four consecutive years, according to research and consultancy firms IHS Markit and Wood McKenzie Power and Renewables.
According to IHS Markit, global shipments of single-axis solar trackers increased by over 40 percent in 2018 and surpassed 20 GW globally for the first time. This is compared to only 4 GW of global installations in 2013, of which 11 percent were tracker deployments in that year (with fixed-tilt installations accounting for the remaining 89 percent).
