"During the auction, ACS Group is said to have bagged the largest share of the solar projects with nearly 1.55GWp capacity."

The solar power project will be equipped with more than 481,900 Canadian Solar’s MaxPower modules, which will be shipped to the site this month. The project is expected to begin its commercial operations from next year.

Canadian Solar chairman and CEO Dr Shawn Qu said: “We are delighted to partner with COBRA and supply our high-efficiency modules to this mega project in Spain.

“It is good to see market demand has started to rebound in Europe and we look forward to delivering more clean and affordable solar energy to the continent.”

The Escatrón solar project is reported to be one of several large-scale solar projects that have been awarded in Spain’s renewable energy auction.

During the auction, ACS Group is said to have bagged the largest share of the solar projects with nearly 1.55GWp capacity.

It is mandatory that PV projects selected in the auction must begin their power generation operations from next year.

In April this year, Canadian Solar secured three solar PV projects with a total capacity of 364MW in Brazil. The project contracts were secured by the solar company under Brazil’s A-4 auction process.
