SolarOne scores in China PV projects

Hanwha SolarOne this week revealed it has delivered 50MW of modules for two projects in China, and announced plans to supply 13MW for another Chinese installation this month.

China-based, Korean-owned Hanwha SolarOne has completed delivery of panels for two projects under development by Chinese state-owned utility Huaneng. It supplied roughly 30MW of PV kit for a plant in Qingtongxia, in China’s Ningxia Hui region, and 20MW for an installation in Wuchuan, in Inner Mongolia.

It also revealed that it will supply 12.96MW of modules to Zhejiang Zhentai New Energy Development this month for a utility-scale PV plant in Yongchang, Gansu province.

Earlier this month, Hanwha SolarOne said it plans to ramp up its downstream PV operations by partnering with Chinese fibre-optic cables specialist Jiangsu Zhongtian Technology (ZTT).

It also secured a new 3.5bn yuan ($570m), three-year credit facility with the Bank of Beijing to further expand its downstream PV capabilities.

Late last month, it revealed plans to supply 42.5MW of modules to a series of projects in Ontario, Canada.
