Canadian Solar Inc., one of the world's largest solar power companies, announced that it has been awarded a module supply agreement to provide 43MW of PV modules to the second largest solar power plant project in Japan.
"We are proud to provide our high efficiency modules to the second largest solar power plant in Japan, which is another significant milestone for Canadian Solar in this important market," commented Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman, President and CEO of Canadian Solar, "This win further demonstrates our strong position as a global tier 1 solar module supplier with proven track record of delivery high efficiency and quality modules to large solar power projects across the globe."
Canadian Solar will supply approximately 168,300 pieces of its 60 cell high efficiency CS6P255P modules with power output of 255Wp for this project. Module delivery is expected to start from May 2014 and to be completed in February 2015.
The quality of Canadian Solar modules is substantiated by one of the highest PTC ratings out of over 12000 P-type crystalline modules published on the Go Solar California website. In addition, Canadian Solar modules also demonstrate higher energy yield of up to 5% compared with products from other Tier 1 module suppliers, according to PVSYST's system performance simulation.
