Trina Solar secure EPC contract for Jordan's largest PV project


China's Trina Solar has announced today that it has secured the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for a 2 MW solar rooftop installation in Jordan.

Food storage and logistics company Fresh Fruits Company signed a contract today with Trina Solar, permitting the solar giants to install its TSM-PC05A Honey 260 Wp high efficiency modules atop its stores and warehouses in the Jordan capital of Amman.

The modules were chosen due to their durability and performance in dry and near-desert conditions, such as those found in Amman. The project is the first mega-scale rooftop installation in Jordan, and work is expected to commence next month, with a completion date penciled in for the third quarter of the year.

Once complete, the installations will deliver 3,200 MWh of solar power each year, mitigating the effects of 38,400 tons of C02.

"We are delighted to have been awarded this mega-scale project in Jordan," said Trina Solar CEO and Chairman, Jifan Gao. "Our successful selection as the EPC provider for this project demonstrates our ability to develop large-scale projects in the Middle East.

"For oil and natural gas importing countries like Jordan, they are vulnerable to fluctuations in global oil and natural gas prices. Solar energy provides Jordan with a viable alternative and we see huge potential for growth in this market. Following this EPC contract and a previous supply contract for 1 MW of Trina Honey photovoltaic modules also in Jordan, we will continue to actively pursue new opportunities in this emerging market."

Fresh Fruits Company general manager, Omar Hashlmon, added that the company received more than 20 offers from local and international companies to deliver the project, but chose Trina Solar because of its experienced team of "local technical professionals in the Middle East and its commitment to excel in project development in the region."
