Suntech transfers Japanese unit shares to Wuxi Suntech


Financially strapped Chinese solar panel maker Suntech Power Holdings Corp. has transferred shares from a Japanese unit to its insolvent Wuxi Suntech Power Co. division, currently undergoing restructuring and set to be acquired by Shunfeng Photovoltaic International Ltd.

According to a Bloomberg report, Tokyo-based Suntech Power Japan, up till now a wholly-owned unit of Suntech Power, will continue to sell solar power generation systems and provide maintenance services in Japan.

Wuxi Suntech was forced into insolvency in March. Creditors on Tuesday approved a plan for Hong Kong-listed Shunfeng to buy the unit.
