China Sunergy’ s Quasar modules were granted safety and reliability certificates by TÜV Rheinland Group after conducting independent tests to prove that the PV modules are safe and will deliver the guaranteed rated power in different environmental conditions. China Sunergy noted that the TÜV Rheinland certificates for its Quasar modules are valid for five years through November 16, 2016 and that the certification will allow it to scale up sales of its Quasar modules across Europe.
The company also advised that it had sold 1.89MW of its Quasar products to Bulgaria under a contract signed by with M1 Solar Plant, a special purpose vehicle company registered by Helios Power. M1 Solar Plant will deliver the Quasar modules for a commercial ground-mounted project in the Burgas region of Bulgaria knows as Sredetz Solar Park. The project, which is anticipated to be completed by February 2012, saw PV module shipments begin in mid-December with the remainder of the modules being shipped by the end of January 2012.
Robert Rice, chief sales, marketing and strategy officer commented, “We are very pleased with these two positive developments. The TUV certificate is recognition of our Quasar product's quality and safety, and we expect this can pave the way for China Sunergy to step into the bigger European market. Specifically, the cooperation with M1 Solar Plant will expand our market share in Bulgaria, a good growth area for China Sunergy in the future.”
