Yingli Green Energy has signed a 7.9MW photovoltaics module sales agreement with system integrator Cegelec. The modules supplied under the agreement are expected to be utilized in ground-mounted systems located in the southwest of France. This agreement is the largest between the two companies to date.
“Cegelec is one of the largest PV installers in France and also one of the key components to our growth strategy there,” said Liansheng Miao, chairman and CEO of Yingli Green Energy. “In view of the fact that the French solar market is booming, Yingli Green Energy has recently set up office in Lyon, France, with the objective of being close to the market and thus being able to provide best service to our customers and partners. In our opinion, sustainable long-term growth requires our steady and long-term commitment to the market and support from major players such as Cegelec.”
“When we look for long-term partners, we seek companies such as Yingli Green Energy that not only possess a track record of success and a well-known brand, but feature robust product warranty commitments and a proven trustworthiness matching perfectly with our customers’ high standards,” said Alain Viard, head of photovoltaics at Cegelec.
