French PV project developer Helios Strategia has completed a 2.5MW PV plant in Ploiesti, Romania.
Spanning an area of seven hectares, the plant was developed by Helios Strategia in partnership with unnamed local partners and co-investors. It utilises PV modules manufactured by Suntech and inverters supplied by Power One.
Helios Strategia is a keen supporter of the growing Romanian PV market. In June it became a member of the Romanian Photovoltaic Industry Association, which aims to support and develop the PV industry in Romania.
Romania has also been identified as an important PV market by several other companies. In September Martifer Solar completed its first PV plant in the country while Gehrlicher Solar is nearing completion of its first Romanian solar facility.
