Greek metal products maker Mevaco Metallurgiki Industrial and Commercial, also known as Mevaco AE, has received an order to supply fixed metal components for a 100-MWp solar project at home.
The contract was placed by an unnamed party and will see the Greek company produce, supply and install metal support bases for the photovoltaic (PV) project, it said in a bourse filing on Monday. The value of the award stands at roughly EUR 5.4 million (USD 5.38m).
The project covered by the deal is planned to be built in the prefecture of Drama, in northeastern Greece’s East Macedonia and Thrace region. Mevaco expects to carry out the deliveries of the metal support structures by the middle of February 2023.
Currently in Drama, Cero Generation is building the 100-MWp Delfini solar park, which is planned to go online by the third quarter of next year and will be run under a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Axpo Holding AG. The developer, an independent portfolio company of Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG), last month picked Greece’s Sunel Group to build the plant.
