Canadian Solar, one of the world’s largest solar power companies, announced that Wirsol has started the commercial operation of the  30MWp Solarpark Delfzijil solar power plant in Delfzijl, Netherlands, for which Canadian Solar supplied the panels.

The Solarpark Delfzijl was commissioned on January 19th, 2017. About 123,000 solar panels were placed on 30 hectares (about 65 soccer fields) in the southwest corner of the Delfzijl harbour area of Groningen Sea Ports. This 30 MWp solar power park provides power for industries in the Eemsdelta region and makes an important contribution to the increase in renewable energy production in the industrial area.

“I am delighted to see the Delfzijl solar power plant come online. We look forward to building more solar projects together with Wirsol in the BENELUX,” commented Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Canadian Solar.
