Yingli announces largest Middle East supply deal

Chinese module giant Yingli has announced its largest supply deal to date in Israel and the Middle East region.

Yingli is already shipping 27.5 MW of its YGE 72-cell NH Series modules for the unidentified one million m2 project, which has been designated a national infrastructure project by the Israeli government.

Yingli, which will distribute the modules through its local partner Ledico Ltd., announced details of the supply deal in a press release today, adding the modules will be shipped until April.

Yingli said it regards Israel as a market which could see up to 340 MW of solar installed this year.
