US module manufacturer Suniva has secured a 1.1MW order from Mexico and hailed the potential opportunity for American firms south of the border.

The company will be providing its high-powered Optimus modules for the country’s largest commercial solar project, a car park canopy at Aeropuerto Intercontinental de Querétaro.

“The Latin American markets – and Mexico in particular – are demanding high-quality US renewable energy solutions to meet their growing need for clean electricity,” said Anthony Coker, senior director of emerging market sales, Suniva.

“We will continue to work with strong partners like GMI in their local markets to provide turnkey solutions for their corporate customers,” he added.

The airport canopy was designed by Intragreen, a subsidiary of Grupo Metal Intra (GMI) and will include SMA Inverters. GMI received finance from the US Export-Import Bank and is the second project that Suniva, Ex-Im and GMI have collaborated on.

GTM Research has predicted that Mexico will outperform Chile to become the most active solar market in Latin America during 2014.

SunEdison has been very active in the Chilean market but delays and infrastructure challenges have held back the development of some projects in the country.
