In early June, Gestamp Asetym Solar revealed that it would be working with French automaker Renault to install a solar system on the automakers manufacturing plants in France. The companies recently advised that they had chosen Trina Solar as the PV module supplier for the project. Through its subsidiary, Trina Solar Spain, the company signed a sales agreement with Gestamp, but neither company disclosed any of the financial details for the deal.
Under the agreement, Trina Solar will deliver 55MW of its solar modules starting in June and continuing through November. Originally, Gestamp Solar had reported that the solar project would be comprised of a 60MW solar installation across 450,000m² of Renault’s facilities. However, under the agreement with Trina Solar, Gestamp advised that the 55MW would be installed on 415,000m² of Renault’s parking lots at its Douai, Maubeuge, Flins, Batilly and Sandouville manufacturing sites.
Alfredo Gonzalez-Izquierdo, production director of Gestamp Solar commented, “Trina Solar's industry leading solar reliability and quality matches perfectly with our mission to provide global services to our clients and become a leading company in all stages involved in the development of the solar business.”
