SPI Solar unit signs 100 MW of EPC deals in China

Xinyu Xinwei New Energy Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of California-based PV developer SPI Solar, has signed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) agreements for 100 MW of solar PV projects in China’s Hebei province.

The three separate agreements call for the development of two rooftop sites consisting of 50 MW and 30 MW, respectively, for ecological agricultural farm rooftop installations as well as a distributed grid (DG) project consisting of 20 MW. The projects are located in Hebei’s Julu County.

For the rooftop projects, construction on the first phase of the 50 MW project is scheduled to begin in October with completion and grid connection expected in April. Construction on the second phase of the 30 MW project is scheduled to begin in May, with completion and grid connection anticipated in August.

Construction of the 20 MW DG project is also scheduled to begin in October with completion and grid connection anticipated in March.

"SPI continues to experience rapid growth in our project business as we leverage our ability to secure EPC and other agreements both in China and abroad,” said SPI Chairman Xiaofeng Peng. "We are encouraged by both the number and size of our recent agreements, which strengthens and adds diversification to our growing global solar PV portfolio."

Xinwei is also providing EPC services for two large-scales PV projects totaling a combined 50 MW in China’s Inner Mongolia region.
