Trina to Supply 25 Megawatts of Panels for Project in Thailand

Trina Solar Ltd. (TSL), China’s second-largest panel maker, agreed to supply 25 megawatts of modules for a project in Thailand.

Deliveries for the third phase of the 75-megawatt Bangchak Solar Energy Project will begin this month, Changzhou, China-based Trina said today in a statement. Terms weren’t disclosed.

Thailand is seeking to produce 1 gigawatt of solar power by next year and 2 gigawatts from utility-scale projects by 2021, according to the statement. The project is owned by Bangchak Solar Energy Co.

Yingli Green Energy Holding Co. is China’s largest solar manufacturer by 2012 capacity, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Trina was tied with Suntech Power Holdings Co., which was pulled into bankruptcy proceedings in China in March.
