Solaria to develop 11 MW of PV in Ecuador


The Spanish solar company has signed an agreement with an unnamed local developer to carry out the two projects. The first will see an initial one MW pilot plant installed in the mountains of Quito in the first half of this year. The second phase will see an additional five MW installed. It is scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2013.

Solaria has said it will undertake the electrical design, engineering and project management works, and supply its photovoltaic modules to the first phase of the project.

Under the terms of the agreement, a five MW system is also in the pipeline, to be installed across a 70,000 meter square rooftop in Ciudad Empresarial. It should be completed in the second half of 2012.

Solaria further said the two companies have established a roadmap to develop business opportunities in Ecuador and the Caribbean area. They will also reportedly co-invest in Chile.

"The international presence in new markets is a strategic priority for Solaria, specially [sic] in Latin America, where the company will consolidate its business in the coming years primarily in countries such as Chile, Ecuador, Brazil and Peru," it said in a statement released.

No further details were immediately available.
