Module manufacturer Canadian Solar has secured a 100MW order from China Three Gorges New Energy.
The company will provide its 60-cell CS6P250P and 255P modules, with 250W and 255W power output respectively, for the project in Gansu Province.
“We feel honoured to be awarded this module supply agreement by Three Gorges New Energy, a rapidly growing renewable energy project developer in China,” said Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar.
“This agreement underscores that Canadian Solar's brand is well recognised in the Chinese market and that we remain on track with our market diversification strategy to expand our global footprint and gain market share in important growth markets,” added Qu.
Canadian Solar confirmed that it had already begun shipping and expected the order to be on site in full by the end of the year.
Three Gorges New Energy began as a wind developer but is increasingly active in solar.
