Oct. 21, 2013 - Canadian Solar today announced that it has been awarded a contract to supply 1.78MW to Saudi Aramco's KAPSARC ("King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center") solar power project in Saudi Arabia.
Following a very detailed and intense selection process Saudi Arabian Oil Company ("Saudi ARAMCO") has awarded Canadian Solar a contract to supply 1.78MW of its solar panels to the extension of the KAPSARC Solar Power Project.
"After a long and detailed testing and registration process we are honored to become a certified supplier to Saudi ARAMCO as well as to be the first solar PV panel manufacturer to supply panels directly to Saudi ARAMCO for the prestigious KAPSARC project. Our high quality CS6X series solar panels will be used for the implementation of this project on the grounds of KAPSARC in Riyadh. We believe that this flagship project will also be a determining factor to select and qualify technology partners with bankable solar power solutions and proven track record to ensure the successful execution of Saudi Arabia's ambitious 16GW solar PV energy development program," commented Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar.
