December 4 (Renewables Now) - Taiwanese solar products maker United Renewable Energy (TPE:3576), or URE, has secured an order to equip a 193-MW solar park that is set to become Taiwan’s largest photovoltaic (PV) plant.

URE plans to start delivering the equipment for the project in the first half of 2020, the manufacturer said in a bourse filing this week. To be built in Taiwan’s Tainan city, the solar farm will be able to generate enough electricity to meet the demand of around 60,000 homes per year, once completed.

URE, which says it has received TWD 100 million (USD 3.3m/EUR 3m) worth of orders for large-scale solar projects in Taiwan, has set a goal of lifting its PV module sales to 2 GW in 2020 from an expected 1.2 GW-level for 2019, CEO Pan Wen-Whe said previously, as cited by the Taipei Times.
