Solar panel manufacturer Yingli Green Energy announced Tuesday that it has signed off on a 50.6MW solar panel supply agreement with Spanish PV developer X-ELIO.

As part of the deal, Yingli will provide solar panels for two Japanese PV projects. The first project, Hayato, will feature 52,650 YL320P-35b multi-crystalline solar panels and will have a capacity of 16.9MW. The second plant, S-13, will be comprised of over 127,000 YL265P-29b multi-crystalline solar panels and will have a capacity of 33.7MW.

The Hayato project is expected to produce 19,700 MWh of clean electricity annually, with grid interconnection expected in December 2017. The S-13 project is expected to generate 39,400 MWh of electricity per year and will be connected to the grid in October 2017.
