TORONTO—European solar module firm Martifer Solar said it has completed a trio of solar installations in Ontario with a combined capacity of 871 kilowatts.

The portfolio of projects was built for project developer OZZ Solar, an Ontario-based solar developer.

Portugal-based Martifer, it was selected for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the projects—two in Richmond Hill and the other in Cambridge, Ont.
