Following its two requests for tenders (RFTs), the French government has selected bids for 541MW of solar plants, using various technologies, including, five projects from Element Power Solar, which total 18MW. Element Power’s projects include the 2.06MW Tournus installation, the 9.51MW site in Orain, Besset’s 2.16MW project, the 2.66MW installation in Soucia and Sydom’s 1.36MW installation.
The company’s projects were selected within the first French tender for plants >250kW. They will be constructed and commissioned in the next two years and will sell power under a long-term purchase agreement with the French government for 20 years.
“The selection of the five projects submitted, in the very competitive French market, confirms Element Power Solar as a leading actor in the global solar business” – says Paolo Pietrogrande, chairman of EPS. “The local presence of our teams and our ability to optimize projects has resulted in this significant success”.
