Trina Solar to Supply 1MW to Jordan's Largest Solar Power Project
CHANGZHOU, China, Dec. 17, 2013
CHANGZHOU, China, Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trina Solar Limited ("TSL"),
a global leader in photovoltaic modules, solutions and services, announced
today that it has recently reached an agreement to supply 1MW of Trina Honey
photovoltaic modules to Mustakbal Clean Tech ("Mustakbal"), a EPC specialist
focused on the Middle East and North America markets and the international
photovoltaic system integrator Phoenix Solar Pte Ltd ("Phoenix Solar"), the
Asia Pacific headquarters of German-based Phoenix Solar AG, for use in
Jordan's biggest and first large-scale solar power project.
The power project, owned by the Ma'an Development Company ("MDC"), will be
built jointly by Phoenix Solar and Mustakbal. The electricity generated by the
solar power project will cover 100 percent of the electricity needs of two
student dormitory buildings in the Ma'an Development Area Residential
Community in Ma'an, making them zero net energy buildings and a showcase for
solar technology in Jordan. Upon completion, the 4,032 Trina solar modules
will generate approximately 2,000 MWh of solar electricity annually, enough to
mitigate 24,000 metric tonnes of CO2 per year.
Trina Solar's Honey series modules were chosen because of their high
efficiency and performance under harsh environmental conditions. All of Trina
Solar's panels come with a 10-year workmanship warranty and a 25-year linear
power output warranty.
"This new collaboration with Phoenix Solar and Mustakbal recognizes once again
Trina Solar's wide experience as a solar leader and the reliability of our
products and services," commented Mr. Jifan Gao, Chairman and CEO of Trina
Solar. "This is significant for Trina Solar and we are thrilled to see our
modules being used in Jordan's largest solar power project. Jordan is a
rapidly emerging solar market and today's announcement marks Trina's continued
progress in our strategy of geographical and market diversification. We see
great potential in the Middle East and Jordan in particular, and we will
continue to actively pursue further opportunities for ongoing expansion which
we have identified in these markets.
Mr. Gao added, "We have established a strong, experienced local team in the
Middle East, who work closely with our partners in the region, providing
ongoing technical and product support on-the-ground. We estimate that Trina
Solar currently enjoys approximately 50 percent of the solar market in Jordan
and we expect to continue to grow our market presence as we move into
"Trina Solar's support was instrumental in our success in the Ma'an and other
projects. We look forward to building on this year's successful cooperation
with further in-depth collaboration well into the future. The responsible and
efficient way in which Trina Solar operates makes them an extremely reliable
partner," commented Dr. Ala Qubain, CEO of Mustakbal Clean Tech.
The modules will start to be shipped before the end of 2013, with the project
expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2014.
