Yingli Solar has signed the largest PV module supply contrast to date with CFC Group Construction Limited (CFC Construction) to ship 170MW of solar panels for an utility-scale power plant in Hebei province, China.
According to the agreement, Yingli will deliver over 650,000 multicrystalline YGE Series solar panels to CFC Construction during the third quarter and fourth quarter of 2015. The panels will be installed in power plants located in the city of Zhangjiakou, one of Hebei province's largest municipalities. Once operational, the panels are expected to generate more than 200,000MWh of clean energy, offsetting approximately 120,000 tons of carbon emissions.
Zhangjiakou has abundant solar resources, large industrial base, and high demand for electricity, so it was selected by China's State Council to be the site of the country's first renewable energy pilot zone. Zhangjiakou also recently won the rights to host the 2022 Winter Olympic Games together with Beijing, and these new solar power plants will help provide clean solar power for a green, low-carbon Olympics.
"Our highly durable Yingli Solar panels deliver superior performance in the harsh weather conditions that characterize Zhangjiakou and its surroundings, and we look forward to broadening access to solar power in communities across the region thanks to our partnership with CFC Construction," commented Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli.
