The noted solar PV module manufacturer and utility-scale project developer Canadian Solar recently hit it big with a 146.4 MW module supply order in the Central American country of Honduras.

The modules from the supply contract will be used in the construction of two utility-scale projects to be developed in the relatively undeveloped country.

Solar Power SA de CV (SOPOSA) and Companía Hondurena de EnergiaSolar SA de CV (COHESSA) will be in charge of project development and engineering, procurement, and construction services as well.

The 146.4 MW of new capacity will be split nearly evenly between the two projects — which are to be developed in the southern portion of the country.

“We are pleased to be selected to supply our PV modules to SOPOSA and COHESSA, both world leading developers and EPC providers,” stated Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO, Canadian Solar. “I am confident that Canadian Solar’s global experience, proven track record, and consistent product performance will continue to make us a partner of choice in supplying our modules to key solar installations worldwide.”

The two projects are currently expected to be completed sometime before March 2015. The exact financials of the new deals haven’t been disclosed as of the time of writing this.

This new deal follows on the heels of a recent deal between Canadian Solar and Electricite de France SA for the supply of 24.3 MW of modules for the construction of a new utility-scale project. The project that utilize those panels is to be located in California.
