Canadian Solar Inc. has launched a new worldwide business unit focused on delivering operations and maintenance (O&M) services for utility-scale solar power plants.
“Our O&M business was born out of necessity to operate and maintain our own utility-scale solar power plants in Ontario, Canada,” states Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar. “Since all the solar plants were our own, we built the O&M team to provide the best quality of service and operations in order to maximize the value of our own solar assets. Now, we are making these best practices and processes, fully ingrained in our O&M team’s DNA, available to third-party asset owners.”
Founded in 2001, Canadian Solar manufactures solar photovoltaic modules and provides solar energy solutions. It also has a geographically diversified pipeline of utility-scale power projects in various stages of development.
