The Netherlands-based company would not disclose its partner, but did say that equipment including solar inverter stations, transformers and medium voltage switchgear would be supplied to nine photovoltaic plants in Eastern Europe.
AEG has said it will deliver and commission the equipment this year, "which is a major challenge in terms of manufacturing and commissioning." It declined to say which countries will be targeted, how big the projects will be, however a spokesperson told pv magazine that each of the nine plants will be between 20 and 25 MWp in size. They added that construction on some of them is already underway, and should be finalized by the end of the year.
"This contract … illustrates that the solar market is indeed growing and major opportunities exist outside Western Europe. This is direct evidence of the relevance of our solar strategy," commented CEO, Horst J. Kayser.
Currently the company is said to have delivered and commissioned over 450 MW of equipment in Eastern Europe since 2010.
