Canadian Solar Inc. recently signed an operations and maintenance (O&M) agreement with Axium Infinity Solar LP for eight solar PV plants totaling 105.5 MW.
The eight PV plants, located in Ontario, Canada, are Brockville I, Brockville II, Burrits Rapids, Mississippi Mills, William Rutley, and New Liskeard I, III, and IV. Canadian Solar will be responsible for plant monitoring, performance management, preventative maintenance, and corrective maintenance at all eight facilities.
Canadian Solar says its O&M portfolio in Ontario is now 497 MW, with over 1 GW in operation or contracted worldwide.
“We selected Canadian Solar to operate and maintain our solar facilities because of their exemplary track record with PV monitoring, maintenance, reporting, and management throughout Ontario,” says Juan Caceres, senior vice president at Axium Infrastructure.
“As one of the leading providers of solar products and solutions worldwide for 16 years with extensive experience operating and maintaining our own solar facilities, offering operations and maintenance services to customers was a natural extension of our value proposition,” says Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar. “We are thrilled to take on responsibility for operations and maintenance for eight of Axium Infinity Solar’s PV facilities in Ontario. We look forward to working with them to maximize the energy production, revenues, and profitability from these solar properties.”
