US thin-film module producer First Solar Inc. announced that French PV company Photosol has selected its thin film modules to power 14 utility-scale solar power plants with a total capacity of 106.5 MW. The projects – developed and owned by Photosol – are part of the third procurement round initiated by France’s Commission de Régulation de l’Energie. When completed, the plants will supply almost 134,000 MWh of electricity to the French electricity grid per year.
The power plants will be located in Central and Southwest France, and will range from 4.5 MW to 43 MW in capacity. The largest project will be located in Burgundy, with Jayme da Costa Energie Subsidiary in France of Jayme da Costa Group, a Portuguese engineering firm providing the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) for all the projects.
These projects bring Photosol’s total portfolio of PV plants, powered by First Solar modules, to almost 155 MW. Upon completion, they will take First Solar’s total installed capacity in Europe up to approximately 4.5GW.
