‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member GCL System Integrated Technology (GCL-SI) has secured its first order in Australia for its recently launched ‘Super 2.5 MW Solar Block’ modular plant system from Australian-based power station developer APSU Power.

APSU Power was said to be developing a 5MW project in Australia that would use two of the solar block systems. Construction was said to begin in late October, 2017 and the whole project is expected to be completed in February, 2018.

James Hu, Vice President of GCL-SI and head of Overseas Sales said, “The cooperation with APSU Power marks the first time we have sold standardization solutions for power stations. It's also a major step for GCL-SI towards becoming a player in mainstream markets of developed countries. Facing fierce competition from European players, we have won not only the bid but the respect and recognition of clients.”

Several 2.5MW Super Block Solar solutions have already been supplied to projects in China and the US. 

“Now that we have clients in regions including South America, South Africa and Australia, we will put more effort towards expanding into overseas markets and driving green energy utilization everywhere,” added Shu Hua, President of GCL-SI.
