Canadian Solar has won a contract to supply 164 MW of photovoltaic (PV) modules to the 350 MWp Escatron Solar power project owned by COBRA Group, a subsidiary of ACS Group in Spain.
ACS Group will serve as the EPC provider of the project that was awarded in the recent round of Spain’s renewables auction in July 2018.
Canadian Solar will supply over 481,900 MaxPower modules. This 72-cell polycrystalline module offers industry-leading cell technology and low power loss in cell connections. Canadian Solar will start the module shipments in September 2018 and the project is expected to reach commercial operation in 2019.
The Escatron solar project is one of large-scale solar projects awarded in Spain’s renewable energy auction held in 2018. ACS Group had the largest share of the solar projects awarded with around 1.55 GWp of assigned capacity. The PV projects selected in the contest must start delivering power in 2019.
