Sunowe lands 20 MW module supply deal


Chinese solar manufacturer Zhejiang Sunflower Light, Energy, Science and Technology has announced a 20 MW module supply deal to a state-owned energy company.

Sunowe Photovoltaic, as the manufacturer is also known, will supply 80,000 of its modules to Hainan Xianshu Waterpower in a deal worth more than €10 million (US$13.3 million).

Hainan Xianshu Waterpower is a subsidiary of state-owned power company Hainan Waterpower Group.

Sunowe has already started delivery of the modules to Hainan province with the shipment due to be completed by the end of September.

The supply deal comes on the back of a 40 MW order from Next Energy Co Ltd in Japan in early June and an earlier 40 MW supply deal in China as Sunowe continues to diversify away from the European market since the onset of preliminary anti dumping duties on Chinese-made modules.
