Hanwha to supply 155 MW of PV modules to South Africa10. December 2012 | Applications & Installations, Global PV markets, Industry & Suppliers | By: Max Hall
Hanwha SolarOne has signed its biggest deal to date with an agreement to supply 155 MW of photovoltaic modules to two solar farms being developed in South Africa.
The modules will reportedly be used to power around 268,000 families from the Letsatsi and Lesedi farms, which are being constructed in Free State and on the Northern Cape.
The US$116 million deal is said to be the biggest single order signed by the company and also South Africa’s largest panel order to date.
The Letsatsi and Lesedi projects won approval under the first round of the South African government’s Renewable Energy Program with preferred bidder status given to a consortium of U.S.-based SolarReserve and domestic developers Kensani and Intikon Energy.
EPC on the project is being conducted by Spanish company Cobra and Australia's Green Solar Group.
Under the agreement, Hanwha will start supplying 5 MW of panels weekly in January 2013, with the order due to be complete in late August.

Obama's energy policy is right. The world goes solar. Japan's FiT in July is among the highest in the world. Japan's FiT is shaking the solar market. Now, United States has the same options. New solutions will be showed in Japan. This is it!
As you know, earthquake in Japan is happening frequently. Floating solar panels installation is one of the best solutions for power crisis in Japan. So you have to reduce vibration to install Floating solar panels. Because, it makes many kinds of problems! Vibrations caused by wind, waves and external forces. New Floating Body Stabilizer for Floating solar panels installation has been created in South Korea. The Floating Body Stabilizers generate drag force immediately when Floating solar panels are being rolled and pitched on the water. Recently, these Floating Body Stabilizers have been used to reduce vibration of Floating Solar Panels in South Korea. You can watch New Floating Body Stabilizer videos on YouTube. http://youtu.be/O2oys_YHhCc, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nA_xFp5ktbU&feature=youtu.be.
