Flextronics has expanded an agreement signed with MEMC Electronic Materials affiliate MEMC Singapore, to produce solar panels for MEMC's SunEdison subsidiary.

Under the expanded agreement, Flextronics Clean Tech Supersite in Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Malaysia will produce solar panels.

SunEdison will use the produced MEMC-branded panels for its solar photovoltaic projects.

The expansion follows an earlier agreement between the firms signed in December 2010 under which Flextronics will manufacture solar PV panels for MEMC from its Newmarket facility located in Ontario, Canada.

Through the expansion, Singapore-based Flextronics intends to build nearly 270MW of solar panels annually for SunEdison in Malaysia.
