Hanergy considers module fab in Ivory Coast


Hanergy CEO and Chairman Li Hejun met on Wednesday with Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara to talk about a large industrial solar project that would require an investment of $500 million.

Hejun said after the meeting that the Chinese company is considering setting up a thin-film solar module factory and building a large-scale solar park in the African country, according to Ivory Coast presidency press service. Petroleum and Energy Minister Adama Toungara also attended the meeting.

The Chinese company is currently targeting emerging markets. In December, representatives of Hanergy met with the governor of Rio Grande do Sul Tarso Genro to discuss an industrial solar project in the Brazilian state that the renewable energy company plans to carry out.

Last year Hejun also met with Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras in Athens late last year to discuss Hanergy's ambitious investment plans in Greece's renewable energy sector.
