ET Solar builds 50 MW plant in Israel


ET Solar is set to build a 50 MW solar PV plant in Israel.

The Chinese group’s German subsidiary, ET Solutions AG, will provide turnkey EPC services for the installation along with local partners G-Systems and El-Mor Group.

Located 20 kilometers northwest of the ancient port city of Ashkelon, the project will be built on 60 hectares of semi-desert land and is expected to generate more than 85,000 megawatt hours of electricity annually. The solar power facility is scheduled to be grid-connected by the end of the year.

ET Solar will provide end-to-end services, including project management, electrical design, plant layout, purchasing, quality control, construction supervision and commissioning services. The company and its partners will also provide operations and maintenance services for the project.

ET Solar President and CEO Dennis She said the installation was the largest solar plant the company had built in the Middle East to date.

She added that ET Solar, along with its local partners, has become the largest EPC contractor in Israel for utility-scale projects.
