Canadian Solar to supply 33 MW to India

Cirus – a Hyderabad based engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company – will use the 33 megawatts (MW) of modules for projects in India funded by two domestic conglomerates. Shipments have already commenced.

Canadian Solar’s Shawn Qu said that the company was pleased to be involved in India’s developing solar market. "We believe India has the potential to become one of the largest solar markets in the world and we expect it will make a meaningful contribution to the growth of our business in the quarters ahead."

The modules will be supplied for projects including three ground-mounted applications worth 20 MW plant, eight MW and five MW, as a part of the large government sponsored Gujarat solar park. Canadian Solar’s 60-cell CS6P modules will be used in these applications.

Cirus Solar Systems said the installations are expected to be completed by December 2011.
