German Firm Wins Iran Power Purchase Agreement

German consultancy company, Planet in Green Projects GmbH, which specializes in photovoltaic projects, has concluded a contract in Iran.

The power purchase agreement (PPA) has been agreed for 100 MWp with the Iranian Renewable Energy Organisation (SUNA). This will be for a 20-year term, producing 165 million kWh per annum near Tehran.

The solar park will begin in the autumn 2016. Appropriate preparation has already begun. With the formation of local O&M-Teams, the close collaboration of module and inverter suppliers Planet in Green is sure that the important local technical and commercial support will remain available.

Managing Director, Claus Preuss, sees the collaboration of local expertise along with the company’s expanding partner and customer network as the basis for success:

“We are pleased to come to this contractual agreement together with our Iranian expert and partner Amir Alayary. This is a good start, and as our interest in Iranian projects is high we consider to develop additional, but smaller projects of 10-20 MWp size.”
