Hanwha SolarOne supplies 50 MW of modules to China's Huaneng Group


Top-10 global PV manufacturer Hanwha SolarOne has delivered 50 MW worth of its cost-competitive modules to two solar plants owned and operated by Huaneng Group, one of China’s largest state-owned power companies.

The largest of the two utility-scale operations is a 30 MW PV plan in Qingtongxia, a city in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region of China, while the smaller 20 MW project is located in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, in the province of Wuchuan.

"We are pleased to have established our relationship with China Huanend Group, one of the country’s largest state-owned power companies, and look forward to a growing relationship on other projects in the future," said HanWha SolarOne CFO and head of downstream business, Jay Seo. "China is driving the development of PV solar projects throughout the country with new incentives and we are pleased to play a meaningful role in the country’s efforts to expand solar power."

Across 30 Chinese provinces, Huaneng Energy Group has more than 130 GW of power installed, with the company increasingly turning to solar solutions for its continued growth and expansion.

Hanwha SolarOne, meanwhile, recently signed a lucrative MoU with China’s Jiangsu Zhongtian Technology Co., Ltd to develop a 150 MW downstream module supply for the company – further strengthening the module manufacturer’s reach throughout China’s solar PV industry.
