AEG Power Solutions has signed a contract to provide 170MW of photovoltaic (PV), utility scale equipment and services for power plants to be built in Eastern Europe.

The equipment will be supplied to Austria-based Active Solar until the end of 2013.

Under the terms of the contract, AEG Power Solutions will deliver and commission the equipment which will include solar inverter stations based on TKS-C containerised outdoor stations, such as central inverters, transformers and medium voltage switchgears.

AEG Power Solutions Solar Strategic Business Units vice-president Bob Roos said that the group had built up a strong relationship with Activ Solar and would meet its expectations.

"This contract demonstrates how we are strengthening our position in the renewable energy market."

According to the company, 230MW out of 290MW of the first phase of projects are already fully operational, producing energy efficiently in 11 PV power generation plants.

AEG Power Solutions CEO Horst J Kayser said: "The recent opening of our factory in South Africa, as well as this contract, demonstrates how we are strengthening our position in the renewable energy market and how our global footprint constitutes a major strength when Western European solar markets are maturing."

The current deal is an extension of the first agreement signed in the second half of 2010 by AEG Power for the provision of complete electrical systems for 14 PV power plants.
