French renewable energy company Voltalia has entered into a non-exclusive framework agreement with Chinese PV manufacturer Suntech for the supply of 304MW of solar modules until June 2019.
In a release, Voltalia said it would take advantage of this agreement to buy the solar panels to equip its first solar projects in Africa: the 32MW Râ Solar project won in Egypt in 2017, and the 50MW Kopere project in Kenya for which it signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) last week.
“We are glad to benefit from high-quality products at a competitive price within this large-volume framework agreement. They will benefit to both Voltalia and its clients”, said Sébastien Clerc, CEO of Voltalia.
“Over the past few years, we have established a strong relationship with Voltalia, a fast-growing international player in renewable energy. With this agreement, we are looking forward to working with Voltalia on future solar projects”, said He Shuangquan, president of Suntech.
