UGE secures $15 contract to install 9 MW in Ontario

Canada-based renewable energy company UGE International Ltd. has bagged a contract to install 15 PV power systems with a combined capacity of 9 MW in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.

The company will build the projects for Peterborough Solar Projects Corporation (PSPC), a joint venture between the local power provider Peterborough Utilities Inc. (PUI) and the City of Peterborough.

The contract, whose value is estimated at around 20 million CAD ($15.1 million), is pending signature this summer, although it was already approved by the City of Peterborough’s Committee of the Whole. All projects will be completed and installed in the nine to twelve months following contract signing, said the company in its press release.

Prior to this new contract, UGE had been selected by PSPC to build a 500 kW ground-mounted PV plant through a tender.

One week earlier, UGE announced it has taken full control of its unit Carmanah Technologies Inc., and that it has secured a contract to build a 17 MW ground-mounted solar plant near Calgary.

In early June, the company was also contracted by Ontario’s Potentia Renewables Inc. to design and install three new solar projects with a combined capacity of 700 kW.
