Georgia-based Suniva Inc. has shipped 1.1 MW of its Optimus photovoltaic modules for use in an aircraft maintenance facility in Queretaro, Mexico.
The commercial solar project, owned by Delta TechOps – a joint venture of Delta Air Lines and Grupo Aeromexico – will consist of a modular solar parking canopy system at Aeropuerto Intercontinental de Queretaro. Upon completion, the 3,240 Suniva solar modules are expected to generate approximately 1.4 GWh of solar electricity annually.
The Suniva canopy system will be designed by Intragreen, a subsidiary Queretaro-based Grupo Metal Intra (GMI). The canopy system will incorporate equipment from Cantsink Manufacturing Inc., Shoals Technologies Group and SMA Solar Technology as part of an Export Import Bank-financed export credit project for GMI.
Intragreen is providing the engineering, procurement and construction services, and Suniva is performing systems design and commissioning support. Shipments of the balance-of-system components will occur through January, and the project is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of the year.
