Trina Solar Limited, a integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) products from the production of ingots, wafers and cells to the assembly of PV modules, announced that its subsidiary, Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co. Ltd, previously signed a supply agreement with CECEP Solar Sheyang Power Company, a subsidiary of China Energy Conservation and Environmental Protection Group ("CECEP"), for a ground-mounted solar project in China.
Under the terms of the agreement, Trina Solar has been supplying PV modules for the construction of a ground mounted solar project of approximately 20 MW located in Sheyang, Jiangsu Province, China. Additionally, together with local partners, the Company has been designing and managing the construction and development of the project. The project is expected to be completed by the end of December 2010.
The solar power station is believed to be one of the largest solar projects being built in China in 2010. The installation uses an optimized combination of both fixed and single-axle tracking systems and will be a useful platform on which to evaluate the performance of monocrystalline and multicrystalline module performance on a large scale basis.
"We are excited to partner with CECEP Solar Sheyang Power Company to supply our high quality solar PV modules for the development of this large scale solar PV power plant in China," said Mr. Jifan Gao, Chairman and CEO of Trina Solar. "This is an important and significant milestone in the development of China's solar industry as Trina Solar continues to actively promote the adoption of large scale solar projects and solutions as part of its commitment to creating sustainable PV solutions."
"We are very pleased to partner with one of the industry's PV leaders on this landmark project powered by Trina Solar's high performance products and system integration capabilities," said Mr. Cao Huabing, General Manager of PV Solar Business of CECEP. "We look forward to continue building our partnership with Trina Solar to develop more large scale solar projects in China."
