Proinso has signed an agreement to collaborate with Belgian engineering company Nizet to supply photovoltaic modules, inverters, and other balance-of-system gear for what will be the largest solar installation in Belgium–a 3MW project in Ivarem. The €5 million deal will run from mid-October to December, when the new solar plant will be launched to work in combination with a methane plant at the site.
The Spanish company (part of the OPDE group) will also advise on engineering and design optimization, as well as train the qualified staff of the Belgian firm.
The system components include more than 12,700 Trina Solar TSM-PC05 235Wp multicrystalline-silicon modules with 14.4% conversion efficiencies; 270 SMA Sunny Mini Central 11000TL 11KW (AC), 98% efficiency inverters; and 266 Mecasolar MS2C fixed, ground-mounted, double-row systems, as well as communications and monitoring tools also provided by SMA.
Proinso signed a module supply agreement with Trina earlier this year, which called for the delivery of 25MW of panels in 2009 and another 50MW in 2010. SMA has an ongoing arrangement with Proinso, and Mecasolar is also part of the OPDE group.
