Canadian Solar and EOSOL complete 5.1MW French PV plant

23 Sep 2011

Canadian Solar and French energy company EOSOL Energies Nouvelles (EN) have completed the installation of a 5.1MW, ground-mounted photovoltaic (PV) plant in the south-west of France.

The system was completed in just five months and consists of 21,560 Canadian Solar modules over an 89,300 square metre area. Other partners involved in the project were technical construction auditors TSK, ecological engineering specialist Biotope, transmission specialist ERDF and the bank Credit Agricole.

Bruno Bernal, president of the EOSOL Group, said, ‘Canadian Solar has proven to be an excellent partner with its high quality modules and its efficient customer service for our previous projects in France. That’s why we logically selected them to become our partner for this important and strategic project in La Genetouze and we plan to extend our successful cooperation.’

Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar, added, ‘This project is a testament to the high quality work by EOSOL EN and its partners, including Canadian Solar. We are proud that our modules were selected again to be part of this landmark project and look forward to continuing to work with EOSOL EN to promote the expansion of solar energy in France.’

In August, Canadian Solar bucked an industry trend by announcing a significant increase in sales and revenue. The company had recorded a net revenue increase of 46.6 per cent compared with the same period last year and an 8.7 per cent rise against the first quarter.
