Solar equipment and module manufacturing company Wuxi Suntech has agreed to supply Solar panels of around 200MW to Adani Powers for a PV Plant in Tamil Nadu which is expected to start by 2016.
The project will be capable to generate around 330 GWh of electricity to power the equivalent of 367,000 households.
Suntech and adani group came together for a 9.3MW solar power project in Gujarat and being compatible with each other they decided to work more together.
“After recently completing a 9.3 MW project with Adani Power in Gujarat, India, we’re excited to be continuing our partnership withAdani Power, who has proven to be an important and strong partner to have in developing the solar industry in the region and inIndia,” said Haibo Xiong, president of Suntech.
“We first hosted Adani Power at Suntech’s manufacturing facility and testing lab in Wuxi this past April. They were impressed with the quality of Suntech’s technology and panels, along with Suntech’s esteemed value in R&D, which is aimed at upgrading its solar technology in order to ensure continual high performance yields and power outputs. We expect that this 200 MW project is the breaking point for Suntech’s presence in India as we continue to collaborate with Adani Power,” He further added.
