Suntech agrees 200 MW Indian supply deal with Adani


Chinese Tier-1 solar company Wuxi Suntech Power (Suntech) has confirmed it is to work once again with Indian clean energy producer Adani Power on the creation of a 200 MW solar PV plant in Tamil Nadu state in Southern India.

The two companies came together last month to finalize the creation of a 9.3 MW solar plant in Gujarat, India, and will now collaborate on this larger project, which will be one of the biggest in the region once complete in 2016.

Adani Power will develop, design, build and operate the solar farm using 200 MW of Suntech’s Vem PV series modules, which have been developed for installation at utility-scale solar plants.

"After recently completing a 9.3 MW project with Adana Power in Gujarat, we are excited to be continuing our partnership with Adani Power, who have proven important to developing the solar industry in India," said Suntech president Haibo Xiong. The president added that Suntech expects this 200 MW project to be a stepping stone into the Indian solar market, which is rapidly growing.

Eric Luo, the CEO of Suntech’s parent company Shunfeng International Clean Energy, further explained that Suntech’s strategy is aimed at ‘One Belt and One Road’ countries, whereby Chinese companies invest in clean energy infrastructure solutions in regions where such alternatives were not previously accessible.

"The Indian government has provided positive incentive policies for solar development as it looks to accelerate its 2020 100 GW solar mission," said Luo. "We believe this landmark project will help showcase solar energy’ capabilities in providing India with clean and sustainable energy."
