Gensol Engineering Limited, a leading solar engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) company, has announced the acquisition of Scorpius Trackers Pvt Ltd., one of India’s largest providers of single-axis solar tracker solutions. This acquisition strengthens Gensol Engineering's position as a leading provider of end-to-end renewable energy solutions and is a part of its strategy to expand its portfolio by spreading wings across new geographies.

With the acquisition of Scorpius Trackers, Gensol, will be able to offer to its clients an end-to-end EPC solution that includes innovative solar tracking technology, thus, enabling its customer to reduce their levelized cost of energy.

Gensol Engineering Acquires Solar Trackers-specialist Scorpius Trackers for ₹1.35 Billion

Scorpius team brings with it 30 years of experience in delivering commercially successful products in image processing, machine vision, metallurgy, optics, 6-axis motion control, Internet of Things, embedded system design and multifarious software platform development. In order to cater to the dynamic needs of the IPPs and EPCs, Scorpius has developed its own patented tracker controller, software and innovative structure designs that will help deliver faster payback periods and result in higher overall returns on investment. It has a very strong R&D team and the technology has been approved by large utilities worldwide. With signed Letter Of Intents for 800 MW in hand, Scorpius is the only bankable tracker supplier from India with a track record of 600 MW capacity in operation across India, Japan, Africa and Middle East.

Due to the strong synergies between the two businesses, it is estimated that the combined revenue of Gensol Solar division will reach INR 23bn in FY24.

"We are thrilled to welcome Scorpius Trackers to the Gensol family. This acquisition is a significant step forward for us. By combining our expertise in solar EPC and Scorpius’s strong reputation and expertise in solar trackers, will help us offer a comprehensive EPC package. We see the global demand for trackers is growing faster than the overall demand for mounting systems as solar energy projects that use trackers generate significantly more ROI than projects that do not" said Mr. Anmol Singh Jaggi, MD Gensol Engineering

According to Wood Mackenzie, the global tracker market is expected to be a $71 billion cumulative opportunity from 2020 to 2030, representing approximately 682 GW of solar installed over that time period.

"We are excited to join forces with Gensol and bring our innovative solar tracking solutions to even more clients globally," said Mr. Shailesh Vaidya, CEO of Scorpius Trackers.

"Together, we will be able to create leading positions in major markets for solar in India and outside."

Following the acquisition, Scorpius Trackers Pvt. Ltd. will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gensol Engineering Limited.
