Amur Leopard solar modules of 260 W produced by Recom have been deployed in the construction of a landmark 11.9 MW photovoltaic project in Cyprus.
The multi-site development, which includes ground-mounted solar parks in five locations across the country: at Frenaros, Nisou, Dali, Paliometocho and Malounta, are among the first solar projects of this scale in the island country, said the press release published by the company headquartered in Germany.
Recom, the second-largest manufacturer of photovoltaic modules in Europe, has partnered with investment group CYPV Energy Ltd. on the project, which will see over 45,000 of RECOM’s 60-cell Amur Leopard units installed. Recom said it is committed to support solar projects in Europe “during a difficult and uncertain period for the industry.”
The selection of Recom’s modules falls within the policy of high technical standards, said Dmitry Morozov, chairman of CYPV Energy Ltd. – the company with the majority participation in the project. He added he expects cooperation to continue. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development is providing EUR 10 million in debt financing for the construction, development and operation of the five sites.
