In a brief English press statement on its website, Suzhou Horad New Energy Equipment Co. has announced the signing of an agreement to supply a turnkey module line to Motech.

The turnkey line will have the capacity to produce 200 MW of PV modules annually. In November, Solargiga announced that the two companies would put online 600 MW of annual capacity over the course of 2016 through the JV, which will also focus on design, construction and engineering of the PV projects.

Horad reports that it received orders for more than 5 GW of turnkey automated PV module lines from customers including JA Solar, Canadian Solar, GCL, LONGi and Risen Energy in 2015. This includes a 750 MW order from JA Solar and a 950 MW order from Risen Energy.
