Trina Solar Ltd. has reached an agreement to supply 1 MW of Trina Honey photovoltaic modules for use in a large-scale solar power project in the Kingdom of Jordan. Mustakbal Clean Tech is providing engineering, procurement and construction services, and Phoenix Solar Pte. Ltd. is performing systems integration.
The solar project, owned by the Ma'an Development Co. (MDC), covers 100% of the electricity needs of two student dormitory buildings in the Ma'an Development Area residential community. Upon completion, the 4,032 Trina solar modules are expected to generate approximately 2 GWh of solar electricity annually.
Shipments of the modules will commence before the end of the year. The project is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter of 2014.
‘We see great potential in the Middle East – and Jordan in particular – and we will continue to actively pursue further opportunities for ongoing expansion which we have identified in these markets,’ saysÂ Jifan Gao, chairman and CEO of Trina Solar.
