Israel: 6.7 MWp PV system to be installed

Set to be located at the old Timna copper mines in southern Israel, the companies say they expect to build the system this year.

They add that engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) will be carried out via a joint venture (JV), which was created by the two parties. Under it, over 12 MW of PV projects are reportedly scheduled to be implemented between 2011 and 2012.

"Soltec is offering EPC services worldwide," commented Raul Morales, CEO of Soltec Renewable Energies. "We are very pleased to collaborate with Shikun & Binui Solaria to develop the photovoltaic market in Israel."
