Swiss power and automation group ABB (VTX:ABBN) said on Tuesday it has won a deal to supply inverters for 12 MW of photovoltaic (PV) projects in Chile.
The contract, the value of which was not provided, was awarded by Czech solar developer Solek Group and calls for ABB to deliver its TRIO-50.0-TL-OUTD three-phase string inverters. The equipment will be used for two solar parks in Chile called Amaparo del Sol and Santa Laura, previously known as La Frotuna.
ABB expects to complete deliveries of the equipment by October.
Solek Group is the developer of a 3.07-MWp solar park in Chile, the only purely Czech-owned PV facility in Latin America. Named the Cuz Cuz power plant, the facility was last month sold by ABB to local investment fund Ad Capital Servicios Financieros for USD USD 3.5 million (EUR 2.9m).
