Solar PV solution provider ET Solar was awarded a 50MW contract from Tinmar-Ind, a Romanian power supplier and energy trading company, to build several PV plants in Romania.
The PV projects will be developed in three counties, including Gorj, Girugiu and Dolj. More than 20MW are already under construction and expected to be completed before the end of this year while grid connection and electricity feed-in is anticipated to be finished in the first quarter of 2013. The remaining 30MW are being planned, although the company notes that construction is slated to start before the end of 2012.
ET Solar will be the sole PV module supplier for the projects, while its German subsidiary, ET Solutions, will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction and construction financing. ET Solar will also oversee the operations and maintenance for the Romanian solar plants.
