Canadian Solar Inc. (NASDAQ: CSIQ) will deliver 26 MW of its CS6P-P solar power modules for the San Fermin solar power project in Puerto Rico. Engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor TSK Solar is co-developing the project along with Uriel Renewables Inc. and Coqui Power LLC.
The solar power plant is located in the northeastern town of Loiza, a region that regularly faces adverse weather conditions such as hurricanes, tropical storms and flooding. Due to the specific nature of the project and its location, the project's electrical equipment were installed on structures that elevated them two to four meters (6.5 feet to 13 feet) above ground, and have also been designed to withstand winds of up to 260 kilometers (161.5 miles) per hour. The system is expected to be completed and connected to the grid in December 2012.
