Trina Solar Co., Ltd announced today that it will supply 16MW of special low-carbon footprint bifacial PV modules to EDF Renewables.
EDF Renewables is building up two projects in Aramon (5MW) and Saint Pargoire (11MW). Trina Solar is delivering a total of 44,790 units of its bifacial DUOMAX Twin dual-glass module in its low carbon footprint version, with power outputs ranging from 350 to 365Wp. EDF Renewables covers every sector of expertise, from project development, construction, and operations & maintenance.
Once operational, the PV plants will produce 100% renewable energy covering the consumption of more than 8,400 French inhabitants. The plants are spread over approximately 18 hectares and will avoid the emission of roughly 15,000 tons of CO2 annually over 30 years.
Gonzalo de la Vina, Head of Module Business Europe at Trina Solar, says: "We are honoured to have been chosen by EDF Renewables for these two projects in France being developed under the specific constraints of the French CRE4.1 and CRE4.2 tenders using our low carbon bifacial dual-glass monocrystalline PERC modules."
Deliveries of total 16MW modules are expected to be completed at the end of the first quarter of 2019.
