ACS Group will serve as the EPC provider of the project that was awarded in the recent round of Spain's renewables auction in July 2018. Over 481,900 Canadian Solar's high-efficiency MaxPower modules (CS6U-P 345/350 W) will be installed.  This 72-cell polycrystalline module is the best solution for this large-scale project, as it offers industry-leading cell technology and low power loss in cell connections, which are the key factors for the success of the project.  Module shipments will commence in September 2018 and the project is expected to reach commercial operation in 2019. 


Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar commented, "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 one of several large-scale solar projects awarded in Spain's renewable energy auction held in 2018.  ACS Group had the largest share of the solar projects awarded with around 1.55 GWp of assigned capacity. The PV projects selected in the contest must start delivering power in 2019.
