Trina Solar has announced the inauguration of the largest rooftop solar system in Europe with a capacity of 40MW, installed on the rooftops of a global logistics service provider with headquarters in Antwerp, Belgium.
The €166 million project, which is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2009, is the product of a previously announced sales agreement between the Trina Solar and Invictus NV, a Belgian company, partner of the Benelux TEC Servicegroup.
“We are very pleased to partner with Invictus on the successful installation of the largest rooftop solar system in Europe,” remarked Arturo Herrero, vice president of Special Key Accounts of Trina Solar. “We are delighted that Trina Solar’s modules were selected for this landmark achievement by our customer Invictus, with whom we are working closely in Belgium as well as in other European countries as PV installations continue to expand in the region.”
Jan Van der Henst, chief executive officer of Invictus stated, “We are delighted to partner with Trina Solar to complete this significant project. Combined with Trina Solar’s high quality premium performance modules and excellent customer service, the fulfillment of this project once again demonstrates the knowhow and experience of Invictus in the realization of mega projects in the field of photovoltaic installations.”
