Canadian Solar, Biosar to Build Total Eren’s 256 MW Solar Proj in Australia

Post completion, the project is expected to be the single largest solar power plant in Victoria, Australia, and will produce enough electricity to meet the needs of more than 133,500 Victorian homes and displacing more than 610,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.

Solar PV modules maker Canadian Solar and solar EPC services provider Biosar Australia will jointly provide Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) services to a 256 MWp solar power project in Australia for Total Eren.

The project, Kiamal Solar Farm, is located in Northwest Victoria and has secured several Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) with energy retailers such as Flow Power and Alinta Energy and a 20-year PPA with Mars Australia.

Further, the construction of the project is planned to start in October 2018 and is expected to reach commercial operation by mid-2019.

Moreover, over 720,000 of the company’s 1500V high efficiency KuMax modules (CS3U-P) will be installed on single-axis solar tracking systems.

Post completion, the project is expected to be the single largest solar power plant in Victoria, Australia, and will produce enough electricity to meet the needs of more than 133,500 Victorian homes and displacing more than 610,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.

Commenting on the development, Canadian Solar, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Shawn Qu said, “We are delighted to be selected by a very ambitious and professional IPP such as Total Eren to provide EPC services together with Biosar and to supply our 1500V crystalline module to this large-scale solar power project which was very diligently developed. This partnership further expands our presence and solidifies our competitive position in Australia. We are committed to providing customers in Australia and around the world with access to clean, affordable and reliable solar energy.”
