Mine in Suriname goes solar

ET Solar Energy Corp., a  smart energy solutions provider, announced that it has supplied 5 MW polycrystalline photovoltaic modules to a leading mining operation in Suriname.

Upon completion, this solar power plant will substantially meet the demand for electricity of the facilities. ET Solar photovoltaic modules are proven to be reliable products globally in terms of quality, performance and linear product warranty. 

Dennis She, President and CEO of ET Solar, commented: “We are proud to have been involved in such an exciting and challenging project in Suriname. This is our first mining project in South America and we are very pleased to help minimize the energy cost and carbon emission of the mining operation.”

ET Solar believes they offer an attractive value proposition for the mining industry as the solar power plants require low capital expenditures, have short design and construction cycles, and offer speedy paybacks. “Our engineering and business development teams are currently exploring several opportunities with various mining customers in the region for off grid hybrid systems. In Chilean market in particular, we are able to offer a basket of solutions and services, ranging from EPC to project co-development.” Dennis added.
