AEG Power Solutions signed a major contract with Vienna based company Activ Solar. This deal covers photovoltaic utility scale equipment and services for a minimum of 170MW until the end of 2013. It is an extension of the first agreement signed in the second half of 2010 covering the complete electrical systems for 14 PV power plants, each of approximately 20MW.

As in the first contract, AEG Power Solutions will provide its turnkey solutions to equip new photovoltaic power plants in Eastern Europe. This includes solar inverter stations based on TKS-C containerized outdoor stations, including latest generation central inverters, transformers and medium voltage switchgear and the most comprehensive monitoring and supervision system (PV Guard) provided by AEG PS' subsidiary, skytron. AEG Power Solutions will deliver and commission the equipment on site.

"We won this follow-up contract because of the complete and premium solutions we have provided in the first phase. We built up a strong relationship with Activ Solar and met their expectations perfectly," explains Bob Roos, Vice-President Solar Strategic Business Units of the Group. "Other important reasons for winning the follow-up project are our local presence and our ability to fulfill local requirements."

230MW out of 290MW of the first phase are already fully operational, producing energy efficiently in 11 photovoltaic power generation plants.

"This follow-up contract confirms the success of our solar strategy which is based on an end-to end product range with all key components for solar power plants, enabling customers getting a one-stop solution. Focusing on emerging countries is another very important part of our strategy,"

comments Horst. J. Kayser, Chief Executive Officer of AEG Power Solutions. "Eastern European countries and India have fueled our solar growth in 2011. The recent opening of our factory in South Africa, as well as this contract, demonstrates how we are strengthening our position in the renewable energy market and how our global footprint constitutes a major strength when Western European solar markets are maturing."
