SunLink Continues International Expansion with 37 MW Solar Projects in Honduras

Latest global projects propel company's bookings to more than 1 GW

San Rafael, Calif., October 27, 2015 — In keeping with SunLink Corporation's rapid expansion across the board, the company revealed today that as part of its expanding international footprint it has completed delivery in connection with projects in Western Honduras totaling 37 MW.


With a legacy of successful PV installations in locations like Puerto Rico, SunLink's activity in Honduras -- Latin America's second largest solar market in 2015 - is part of a larger push into the region and beyond. The Latin American projects represent one piece of SunLink's robust fixed-tilt, roof-mount and tracker portfolio throughout the Americas, with total installs of over 1 GW.

"Every major player in the solar market is contemplating international solar activity as a way to mitigate risks associated with the predicted temporary 2017 dip in the domestic market - whether that's through projects, M&A or strategic alliances. We already have a respected international track record, and are expanding it rapidly not as a short-term balance sheet bolster like so many others, but as part of our long-term investment and commitment to advancing universal solar power adoption for the benefit of the environment and security worldwide," said Michael Maulick, CEO of SunLink. "The industry knows it can rely on SunLink's proven expertise when it comes to servicing complex political, economic and/or environmental geographies. Our extensive R&D and state-of-the-art engineering means our products surpass expectations in extreme environmental conditions, and our international supply chain accommodates the tightest of logistical timeline requirements on a global scale. Add to that our valued PowerCare engineering and project management services, and you have a winning formula for long-term success for SunLink, our partners and the regions in which they do business."

SunLink's efforts in Honduras are noteworthy as the Latin American region carries a top rank amongst burgeoning global solar markets with a project pipeline of almost 30 GW this year, surpassing the U.S. and Japan. Known for its robust project solutions in demanding markets, SunLink is making its full line of tracking and fixed tilt systems available for project developers in Latin America.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
