China-based solar modules manufacturer JA Solar has secured an order to supply solar power projects being developed by Enel Green Power located in Brazil.

According to media reports, the Chinese manufacturer will supply 300 megawatts of solar power modules for installation at Enel Green Power’s projects that the later secured through competitive auctions in Brazil.

It was not immediately clear at which project these modules would be installed. Perhaps they would form part of the largest solar power project in South America. Enel Green Power Brasil Participações is working on a 292 megawatt solar power project at Piaui.

The company recently announced that it will procure single-axis trackers for installation at the power plant from Soltec. Enel started construction of the Piaui solar power project last year. The project is expected to require a total investment of $300 million and generate more than 600 gigawatt-hours electricity annually. The project is expected to be operational by the second half of this year.

Enel already operates an 11 megawatt solar power project in Brazil and is also working on a 254 megawatt project. Together, these three projects will have a combined installed capacity of more than 550 megawatts. Enel has entered long-term agreements for sale of electricity from all these projects.
