Module manufacturer, Canadian Solar, has completed and grid-connected a 30MW ground mounted project in Tumushuke City, Xinjiang, China.
CSI Solar Power, subsidiary of Canadian Solar, developed the project, with engineering, procurement and construction services provided by Gaochuangte New Energy .
The 30MW project covers 100 hectares and is roughly 9.5km from Tumushuke City.
Canadian Solar used 129,600 of its CS6P-235P modules for the project, which will generate more than 40 million kWh a year.
Construction began in June 2013 and ended in December. The Tumushuke City installation is the largest project Canadian Solar has competed in China.
Shawn Qu, CEO of Canadian Solar said the company was “well positioned to continue to execute on our solar power project pipeline in China in the quarters ahead”, adding that Canadian Solar remains “committed to supporting the adoption of green solar energy in China and around the world.”
