Tenesol, the global solar power provider, has opened a new subsidiary in Greece, where the company is targeting 200 MW of sales this year.

The company has operated in Greece for many years through its distribution network. Tenesol will reinforce this network while also developing and serving the country’s rapidly growing solar industry directly from its new base in Marousi in central Greece.

Manthos Kallios, newly appointed general manager of the Greek subsidiary, joins Tenesol from PPC Renewables, the renewable energy subsidiary of Greece’s largest power company, where he was director of the solar energy division.

“The continued effect of the economic crisis means that Greece’s solar market will not reach its full potential this year,” says Mr Kallios. “That being said, we expect 150-200 MW of new capacity will be installed.”

As a turnkey systems provider, Tenesol manufactures, installs and manages PV systems around the globe. The company has an advanced production facility in Toulouse, France.
