“We are very proud to announce this 12.6MW module supply agreement, which is our largest deal ever in Turkey, making it a new milestone in this important emerging market. It is the second deal we made with the aforementioned customers to whom we supplied 2.2MW of solar modules at the end of last year,” said Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO, Canadian Solar.
