ERDF se­lects CG to sup­ply Linky me­ters


Avan­tha Group Company, CG was se­lected by ERDF -Elec­tric­ité Réseau Dis­tri­bu­tion France, the pub­lic elec­tric­ity dis­tri­bu­tion company man­ag­ing 95 per cent of the elec­tric­ity dis­tri­bu­tion net­work in con­ti­nen­tal France, as one of the six sup­pli­ers to man­u­fac­ture the first three mil­lion of its new gen­er­a­tion Linky smart me­ters. For a company that has built its com­pet­i­tive strat­egy in the de­vel­op­ment of smart grid so­lu­tions, un­der ZIV brand, CG sees this con­tract as a very sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ment

Ac­cord­ing to ERDF, the Linky pro­gramme is a ma­jor in­dus­trial pro­gramme that will cre­ate 10,000 jobs lo­cated in France.

CG’s CEO and MD Lau­rent De­mortier said, “The de­liv­ery of state-of-the-art smart grid so­lu­tions and cre­ation of sus­tain­able, lo­cal em­ploy­ment are at the heart of CG’s mis­sion.” Cana­dian So­lar Inc. (Cana­dian So­lar) has re­port­edly an­nounced the com­ple­tion of the 1.2 MW (DC) so­lar pho­to­voltaic (PV) power plant at Shibushi­cho­cho, Kagoshima Pre­fec­ture in Ja­pan. Pow­ered by Cana­dian So­lar CS6P-255P mod­ules, the plant will gen­er­ate ap­prox­i­mately 1,533 MWh of clean, emis­sion-less so­lar elec­tric­ity per year, it is told. The elec­tric­ity gen­er­ated from the project will be pur­chased by Kyushu Elec­tric Power Co., Inc. un­der a 20 year feed-in-tar­iff con­tract at the rate of 40.00 yen ($0.37) per kWh. “We are de­lighted to com­plete the con­struc­tion and grid-con­nec­tion of our first PV so­lar power plant in Ja­pan. This rep­re­sents another step in the suc­cess­ful ex­e­cu­tion of our to­tal so­lar en­ergy so­lu­tions strat­egy,” Dr Shawn Qu, Chair­man and CEO of Cana­dian So­lar Inc. was quoted as say­ing.

Cana­dian So­lar’s late stage util­ity-scale project pipe­line in Ja­pan cur­rently stands at 405 MW (DC). In ad­di­tion to the 1.2 MW project that has just been con­nected to the grid, ap­prox­i­mately 42.4 MW are ex­pected to start con­struc­tion in the third and fourth quarters of 2014.
