Under the contract, Canadian Solar will supply its CS6X-P modules with power output of 295 Wp and 300 Wp for the project with delivery set to complete in November 2013.

The company claims its modules come up with ten-year material warranty and a 25-year linear power output performance guarantee backed by a third-party insurance policy under-written by insurance companies.

The company’s CS6X-P modules produce over 4% more power annually than the competing 72 polycrystalline cell module brands in the market, according to PVsyst PV system simulation.

China Perfect Machinery Industry operation department general manager Chen Wei said the company has selected Canadian Solar for its project based on its impressive industry experience and reputation as a reliable partner.

Canadian Solar president, chairman and CEO Shawn Qu said the latest order is a major step in the company’s efforts to expand our market presence in China.

"Clearly, demand for solar modules in China is picking up nicely in the fourth quarter of 2013, with improving pricing and more attractive payment terms and we remain optimistic China will be the largest solar PV market this year and in the foreseeable future.

"Canadian Solar is well positioned with a strong brand, a solid track record of execution and the industry’s leading module warranty backed by third party insurance to participate in the growth of this important emerging market," added Qu.
