US-based project developer SPI Solar said it has been awarded two new contracts worth 14.1MW. The first project is a 4.4MW fixed-ground-mount solar power plant located in Evros, a northeastern region of Greece, while the second project is for a 9.7MW fixed-ground-mount solar power plant for a subsidiary of an international pharmaceutical company’s operations at its New Jersey corporate headquarters. Both projects will use LDK Solar’s PV modules.
According to SPI Solar, the New Jersey project is a direct result of a three-year agreement between SPI, KDC Solar and LDK Solar, making SPI the preferred EPC services provider to KDC for a minimum commitment of 150MW of projects over 36 months. No timelines for the projects were given.
The 4.4MW site in Greece is SPI's first in the country, which was obtained by acquiring a 100% limited partnership interest in the project, which was already in early-phase planning with another unidentified entity. The Greek Public Power Corp. (PPC) has signed a 20-year power purchase agreement with SPI.
SPI said it had worked with Global Energy Services (GES) to identify the build-ready project and will partner with SDL Solar to perform onsite technical due diligence and qualify the project for development. Construction is scheduled to begin in November.
