Trina Solar, Gestamp Asetym To Open Spanish PV Plant

September 19, 2008 (FinancialWire) -- Trina Solar Ltd. said it has inaugurated a 26 megawatt photovoltaic plant, consisting of an installation, which uses primarily PV modules manufactured by Trina Solar, in Fuente Alamo, Murcia, in the south-east of Spain. The project has been carried out by Spain-based Gestamp Asetym Solar SA, a provider of solar systems.

Under the deal, Trina Solar supplied twenty megawatts of mono and multicrystalline solar modules of the total 26 MW required for the project as part of the long-term arrangement between both companies. The PV plant consists of three phases, including Fuente Alamo I, of 8MW, Fuente Alamo II, of 8MW and Fuente Alamo III, of 10 MW. The phases are installed on a total of 62 square hectares of rural land.

The 26 MW PV system will produce 44,000 megawatt hours per year, which equals the electric consumption of 13,000 homes and will avoid 15,000 tons of CO2 emissions to the atmosphere.
