Canadian Solar 43MW Japan order

Canadian Solar said today it has secured an order for 43MW of modules to Japan’s second-largest solar project so far underway.

The PV manufacturer does not name the project, but says it expects delivery of the 168,000 modules to start in May this year and last until February 2015.

Earlier this month Hitachi was named EPC provider for a 43MW plant in Gunma prefecture being developed by real-estate firm and renewables developer Ichigo Group Holdings.

Hitachi has previously selected Canadian Solar to supply modules for a Japanese project.

Canadian Solar CEO Shawn Qu said: "This win further demonstrates our strong position as a global tier 1 solar module supplier with proven track record of delivery high efficiency and quality modules to large solar power projects across the globe."
