UAE state-owned renewable energy developer Masdar has connected two solar projects, with a combined capacity of 511MW, to the grid in Uzbekistan.

The Samarkand and Jizzakh solar power plants use more than 11,000 single-row Vanguard 1P trackers supplied by TrinaTracker, solar tracker-manufacturing subsidiary of Trina Solar. Aside from this, TrinaTracker also provides the project with a digital supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) platform. The power plants boast a generation capacity of 1,120GWh annually.

Recently,It reported that TrinaTracker had launched an updated version of its Vanguard 1P Smart Tracking Solution, featuring hardware and software upgrades aimed at improving installation efficiency, system stability, and long-term reliability.

TrinaTracker announced the news of supplying trackers for these solar projects in Uzbekistan last year. This is the second time TrinaTracker provided its trackers to a project in Uzbekistan, as it was the supplier for the country’s first utility-scale project – with a 100MW capacity – which was commissioned in August 2021.

Additionally, Masdar signed a joint development agreement (JDA) with the Uzbekistan government in May 2023 to develop more than 2GW of solar and wind projects. According to Masdar, Uzbekistan plans to achieve 7GW of solar and 5GW of wind capacity by the end of the decade, equivalent to 25% of its energy mix.
