Trina announces sale of first large scale project


Chinese module giant Trina Solar today said the sale of its first large scale solar project demonstrates the strength of the company’s downstream credentials.

After joining the rush of solar manufacturers to diversify into project development to absorb panels during last year’s supply glut, Trina says the 50 MW plant at Wuwei, in the Gansu province of China, is liable to be the first of many in its domestic market.

Trina oversaw every stage of the Wuwei project, from design and construction through operating the project and its final sale to clean energy company Huadian Fuxin Energy Corp, for an undisclosed fee.

Trina Solar chairman and CEO Jifan Gao said the company ‘look forward’ to developing further projects in Gansu province, in a press release issued today to announce the sale.
