Aide Solar Energy Technology, the China-based subsidiary of Taiwanese rectifier diode manufacturer Pan Jit International, has signed a deal with Tianjin HuanOu International Silicon Material, a unit of Chinese solar-grade crystalline and semiconductor-grade silicon wafer maker Zhonghuan Semiconductor, for OEM production of PV modules, according to a report by DigiTimes.
Aide will make the modules specifically for use in PV power plants constructed in China as part of a joint-venture investment by Zhonghuan, Apple and U.S.-based SunPower.
Zhonghuan, Apple and SunPower first partnered on a PV project in Chinas Sichuan Province last year. The companies are also developing three other solar farms in Inner Mongolia with capacities of 20 MW, 50 MW and 100 MW.
Zhonghuan also supplies solar-grade monocrystalline silicon wafers for SunPowers monocrystalline solar cells.
Aide has become a main OEM of such PV modules, according to the DigiTimes report.
