Named “Jash Energy”, this factory covers over 16 acres in Mundra, Gujarat and is modelled after Arctech’s existing Chinese manufacturing base.

Jash Energy, Arctech’s first joint venture manufacturing base in India has reached the 3.5 GW shipment milestone in the regional market. The event saw Shail Shah, Director of Jash Energy; Gail Chen, General Manager of East Asia and India at Arctech, Director and CEO of Jash Energy; Amit Herekar, Senior Sales Manager at Arctech, and Ganesh Rai, Head of Technical Sales at Arctech the positivity this company would bring to the regional solar industry as the first factory dedicated to the solar tracker in the country.

Well-acclaimed for its signature solar tracker with patented torque tube design and the multipoint drive mechanism, Arctech’s manufacturing base is particularly facilitated by the industrial advanced automatic production line for Arctech’s patented torque tube allowing for better performance in solar trackers’ stiffness. The company also introduced the latest innovation, SkyWings, the world’s first dual row solar tracker with a multi-point drive mechanism allowed by patented bidirectional slew drives to enhance the solar tracker’s adaptability to difficult topographies.

According to Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables, Arctech holds the No. 1 position for solar trackers in India in 2020 and a 45% market share in 2021

Gail Chen, General Manager of East Asia and India at Arctech, Director and CEO of Jash Energy said, “Arctech has always seen the Indian market as our second home base. We have shipped more than 3.5GW of tracking and racking products to India in the last few years. By having this local production plant, we can guarantee a shorter delivery timeline, quicker response to needs, and most of all, a more competitive pricing strategy. We believe the JV factory will bring more benefits to our customers.” 

Shail Shah, Director of Jash Energy, said, “One of the major challenges during the solar plant construction is the global disruption of the supply chain due to COVID-19. As a result, the costs of steel, cement, and other materials drastically increased. Hence, completing the project on time and without cost overrun was the biggest challenge that we faced. I am glad we finally overcome it with the set-up of the JV factory.”
