Talesun to install 900 MW PV in China


Under the agreement, Talesun has said it will develop 150 MW of solar farms in China’s largest province, Qinghai, annually over a six year period.

In a statement released, it said, "The implementation of the six sub projects requires the annual approval of the Development and Reform Commission of Qinghai. Correspondingly, the individual project stages will be subject to ongoing modifications to the local feed-in tariffs."

At the start of April, Talesun signed a one gigawatt (GW) contract with the China Merchants New Energy Group, under which it will deliver 300 MW of modules for projects in China and 50 MW annually, for three years, to other international projects. No further details were divulged.

At this year’s SNEC, Talesun further told pv magazine that it is working on a pilot project with a leading electronics company in Germany, to supply a photovoltaic, storage and self-consumption system for an entire neighborhood. It also recently entered into a joint venture with a Swiss battery manufacturer.

The company expects to reach a production capacity of two GW by the end of this year. Having recently joined a group of three global manufacturers, it additionally said it aims to attain the VDE’s (the German Testing and Certification Institute) quality mark, for its product-line TP660P.
