Trina Solar has been selected by Solarcentury, a project developer and EPC, to supply around 33,000 of its PC14 modules for a 9.9MWp solar farm project in Cocle province, central Panama.
Trina Solar’s PC14 module performs reliably and well even in challenging environmental conditions. Its high power footprint, installation time and BOS costs are significantly reduced, helping large-scale PV projects to achieve maximum cost efficiency. Solarcentury will use the high-powered solar PV modules to construct the solar farm for ECOSolar, a Latin American solar investment company. Working alongside local solar company Hybrytec, Solarcentury will build the 9.9MWp "Divisa Solar" system. The system will be one of the largest solar farms in Panama connected to the grid and sold on the spot market once completed.
"Over the last few years we have expanded our presence in Latin America and this project marks a major milestone for us. Thanks to its good climate, the region is well suited to solar PV generation, and has abundant space,” said Zhiguo Zhu, COO and President of Module Business Unit at Trina Solar. “With an increasing demand for electricity in the area, the solar farm will diversify the energy mix and thus drive an efficient and clean supply of energy."
Matthew Boulton, COO at Solarcentury said: "Trina Solar is a new partner for Solarcentury and as a leading global brand, it was an obvious choice as part of establishing Solarcentury in new countries. Trina Solar was able to support the tight timelines required to fulfil the project and provided regular communication and support from its UK team."
