Order Focus: Yingli to supply 33MW of PV modules to Maetel for ‘largest’ solar plant in France


Yingli Green Energy has signed a sales contract with Maetel, a unit of infrastructure company ACS Group. Under the terms of the deal, the Chinese solar manufacturer will supply 33MW of its Yingli Solar crystalline-silicon PV modules to the Spanish engineering, procurement, and construction firm, with deliveries starting in October and continuing through the end of April 2011. The panels will be deployed at what will be the largest solar power system in France.

GDF Suez Group, owner of the planned PV plant, said the facility in Curbans, France, is expected to generate 43.5KWh of renewable energy annually, enough to power approximately 14,500 households.

“This contract provides more positive visibility into the demand momentum in the emerging European solar markets,” said Liansheng Miao, chairman/CEO of Yingli Green. “Moreover, we are glad to see that our customers in existing markets are actively exploring market opportunities beyond their domestic scope, which will help us further diversify our market exposure.”
