Martifer Solar, a subsidiary of Martifer SGPS, completed a multi-site portfolio of projects in Ontario, Canada with combined capacity of 871.3 kW. The portfolio of solar installations, which are installed over several rooftops in the southern Ontario area, was built for the project developer, OZZ Solar.
The portfolio of projects consists of three PV rooftop installations, which were completed over the course of 2013. Martifer Solar was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for these installations.
The 871.3 kW rooftop project portfolio signifies Martifer Solar’s continued strength in the rooftop segment of the solar PV market in Canada. The multi-site installation consists of two in Richmond Hill, and one rooftop PV project located in Cambridge, Ontario. The total system utilizes more than 3,400 crystalline silicon modules, which allows for a production capacity of 1045.56 MWh/year. The installation will produce the equivalent to the consumption of over 800 inhabitants and will avoid approximately 700 tons of CO2 emissions each year.
“This portfolio of projects is a confirmation of Martifer Solar’s ability to successfully operate within the Canadian market, especially within the rooftop segment of the industry,” said Pedro Pereira, President of the North America Region for Martifer Solar. “The Company intends to ramp up its activities and become a leading player in the Canadian market. We see great potential in the country and a large amount of untapped market share of which Martifer Solar is looking forward to take part.”
According to latest iHS research report among 700 EPC contractors, Martifer Solar is currently the 4th largest player at the European level and 14th in the World’s PV integrators ranking.
