Solar Frontier has agreed to supply 10MW of its cadmium- and lead-free thin-film CIS solar modules to Saudi Aramco, which is building the North park office complex in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. Solar Frontier’s modules will be used to cover the 4,450 parking spaces at the car park for the office complex. At 10MW, the panels will provide all the structure’s daytime energy needs with completion anticipated for the end of 2011.
“Solar Frontier’s panels are proven to deliver reliable and affordable performance, providing efficient and stable power output in even the toughest conditions, and this partnership with Saudi Aramco shows a continuing commitment to supply our high-performance CIS solar modules to projects in demanding desert conditions across the Middle East,” said Atsuhiko Hirano, senior vice president of Solar Frontier.
“We are pleased to be able to provide a stable supply of affordable high-performance solar modules. This installation at North Park will enable us to monitor the performance of our CIS modules in a desert environment, giving us invaluable knowledge to leverage for future projects in Saudi Arabia, the Middle East and regions with similar environments around the world.”
