Canadian Solar lands 8.7 MW module order

Canadian Solar has announced the completion of another big order with the shipment of 8.7 MW of its solar modules for what is being described as Mexico‘s second largest solar project to date.

The Chinese company will supply its MaxPower CS6X modules for the TAI-I project in Durango which is reportedly just the first phase of an eventual 200 MW ‘mega-project’, set to take shape over the next two years.

Canadian Solar announced the deal in a press release today which stated the project is being developed by the EOSOL Energy de Mexico subsidiary of the EOSOL Group.

Engineering, construction and project financing for the 8.7 MW project is being performed by the TSK Electronica y Electricidad subsidiary of the Spanish engineering and energy conglomerate TSK Group.

With an official opening of the 8.7 MW project expected in the first three months of next year, Canadian Solar’s press release quotes EOSOL Energy de Mexico CEO Carlos Ludlow when referring to the wider ambitions of the scheme.

pv magazine was unable to contact EOSOL Energy de Mexico, EOSOL Group or TSK Group for further details at the time of going to press.
