Solar energy solutions firm Trina Solar and Aquila Clean Energy EMEA, Aquila Group’s clean energy development platform in Europe, have signed a framework agreement for the supply of 800MW of photovoltaic modules.

The agreement covers several projects that are part of the portfolio that Aquila Clean Energy is currently developing in Southern Europe.

These projects, due for delivery in 2023 and 2024, will feature module technologies from Trina Solar.   

The partners say the alliance will open the way for future opportunities for more extensive collaborations, including the potential for an expansion of volume, new technologies, as well as the extension of the collaboration to other markets.

The ultimate aim is to enable the formation of a long-term partnership in the form of a strategic framework.

‘Very special’ cooperation

Susanne Wermter, CEO of Aquila Clean Energy EMEA, said: “For us, the signing of this agreement represents a big step in developing our projects in EMEA in the most efficient way possible.

“We are delighted to collaborate with Trina Solar, a leading player in the industry with a proven track record.

“This agreement allows us to weather market fluctuations with confidence and to develop our portfolio under competitive conditions, using efficient technologies in our projects.”

Gonzalo de la Viña, president EMEA at Trina Solar, said: “This cooperation is very special and exciting for Aquila Clean Energy and Trina Solar.

“We feel honoured that Aquila Clean Energy has chosen Trina Solar as a strategic module partner for developing their evolving project portfolio.

“Our companies share the vision of decarbonizing energy generation and fighting climate change.

“We need to scale up solar PV deployment significantly, and this partnership is an important step towards achieving a net-zero future.”  

Aquila Clean Energy EMEA currently manages a portfolio of around 10.3GW in Europe, with a focus on wind, solar, and battery storage.
