Suntech supplies photovoltaic modules for 30 MW solar project in Mexico

Suntech Power Holdings Co. (STP) is supplying the photovoltaic modules for a 30 MW plant in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. The solar power plant’s construction is slated for completion in August 2013.

The project has financial support from Mexican local development bank NAFIN, and from the International Finance Corp. According to Suntech, the project is Mexico‘s first utility-scale solar project with a power purchase agreement from Mexico’s federal power company.

The 132,000 Suntech Ve and Vd panels will be installed by Martifer Solar, a Portugal-based solar company, on a 100-hectares site. Owned by Corporacion Aura Solar, the project is being developed by Gauss Energia, a Mexican energy project developer focused on renewable energy.
