China Sunergy to Ship 20MW to 25MW of Solar Cells in 2009 to Photovoltaic Firm
Pursuant to the terms of the agreements, China Sunergy will utilize the multi-silicon wafers purchased from the firm to produce multi-silicon solar cells, which will then be sold back to the firm for incorporation into its downstream solar products. Based on the forecast provided by the U.S. based manufacturer, a total of 20MW to 25MW of solar cells will be supplied by China Sunergy throughout 2009.
The agreements may be replaced by an OEM tolling agreement between China Sunergy and the manufacturer, which is expected to come into force in April 2009. The parties expect that the OEM tolling agreement would not alter the basis of the purchasing and sales terms currently outlined in the existing contracts.
Commenting on the news, Dr. Ruennsheng Allen Wang, CEO of China Sunergy, remarked:
"The securing of this year-long agreement with our U.S. partner, especially during a period of instability within the solar sector, demonstrates that China Sunergy is able to execute on our strategy of signing financially profitable, mutually beneficial agreements with a diverse set of customers. We will continue to seek out additional suitable partners for our advanced solar products across a wide spectrum of geographies and industry segments."
