Aquila Group’s clean energy development platform in Europe has signed a framework agreement with Trina Solar for the supply of 800MW of photovoltaic modules for part of its portfolio in southern Europe. The deal covers several sites which are part of the portfolio that Aquila Clean Energy is developing in the region. These projects are due for delivery in 2023 and 2024. The partnership between Aquila and the module maker will open the way for future opportunities for more extensive collaborations, including potential for an expansion of volume, new technologies such as batteries by Trina Storage or the TrinaPro solution including solar trackers by Trina Tracker.
It could also extend their collaboration to other markets and eventually the formation of a long-term partnership in the form of a strategic framework. Aquila Clean Energy EMEA chief executive Susanne Wermter 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.” Trina Solar EMEA president Gonzalo de la Viña added: “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.” Aquila Clean Energy EMEA manages a portfolio of around 10.3GW in Europe, with a focus on wind, solar and battery storage, with projects under development, construction and operation in different countries.
