published: 2013-12-18 14:45

Trina Solar Limited, a global enterprise in photovoltaic modules, solutions and services, announced on December 17th that it has recently reached an agreement to supply 1MW of Trina Honey photovoltaic modules to Mustakbal Clean Tech, a EPC specialist focused on the Middle East and North America markets and the international photovoltaic system integrator Phoenix Solar Pte Ltd, the Asia Pacific headquarters of German-based Phoenix Solar AG, for use in Jordan's first large-scale solar power project.

The power project, owned by the Ma'an Development Company ("MDC"), will be built jointly by Phoenix Solar and Mustakbal. The electricity generated by the solar power project will cover 100 percent of the electricity needs of two student dormitory buildings in the Ma'an Development Area Residential Community in Ma'an, making them zero net energy buildings and a showcase for solar technology in Jordan. Upon completion, the 4,032 Trina solar modules will generate approximately 2,000 MWh of solar electricity annually, enough to mitigate 24,000 metric tonnes of CO2 per year.

Trina Solar's Honey series modules were chosen because of their high efficiency and performance under harsh environmental conditions. All of Trina Solar's panels come with a 10-year workmanship warranty and a 25-year linear power output warranty.

Mr. Gao commented, "We have established a strong, experienced local team in the Middle East, who work closely with our partners in the region, providing ongoing technical and product support on-the-ground. We estimate that Trina Solar currently enjoys approximately 50 percent of the solar market in Jordan and we expect to continue to grow our market presence as we move into 2014."

The modules will start to be shipped before the end of 2013, with the project expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2014.
