PV outsourcing firm Solargiga has secured a 73MW module order with China Power Investment (CPI), according to a statement on the Hong Kong stock exchange.
CPI, one of five state-owned power companies in the country, will become Solargiga’s second-largest customer after Sharp.
The company has been working with CPI since 2011, mainly in ingots and wafers. Expanding the arrangement to include modules has nudged CPI up to second in its order books.
Solargiga also said CPI would be adopting high-end monocrystalline wafers to produce 280W modules, improving the rate of return from projects’ power generation.
The statement also expressed Solargiga’s intentions to expand module sales as well as its engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) business.
