“Suntech was the first PV brand to enter the European market. We have been adhering to Suntech's quality for 20 years. Suntech has been honored a leading solar brand in Europe for five consecutive years, and most of the respondents in the EuPD Research were installers from mature distributed markets. They have cooperated with a large number of component brands, but still choose to recommend Suntech. This is the best proof of Suntech's product quality. ”Said Mr. Vincent Cao, Vice President of Suntech.
“Suntech has a stable network of distribution in Europe, and also supplied to a lot of high-capacity power plant projects there.” In March 2019, Shell's Moerdijk above-ground power station project using modules supplied by Suntech, in which Suntech provided 76,000 pieces of mono half-cell modules for constructing the Moerdijk solar park and contributed peaking capacity up to 27MW, an equivalence to the energy consumption of 9,000 households in the Netherlands, to Shell's Moerdijk solar park, was completed smoothly. So far, the generating plant is operating charmingly. In August, Germany's largest floating PV power station, which used 750kW of high-efficiency polycrystalline modules with IP68 waterproof capability supplied by Suntech, was completed, and its completion means that a plan of developing clean energy via an enhanced utilization of new surface area embarks on a new journey. In December, Suntech supplied 34,7 MWp bifacial PV modules to the “pioneering” solar-plus-storage photovoltaic project in UK. This project is also claiming it to be the first in the UK to boast single-axis trackers and bifacial modules. In addition, a number of projects in Portugal, Spain, and the Netherlands are supplied by Suntech, which makes a positive performance in EU market.
