Hanwha SolarOne Co., Ltd. has signed a deal with O2 Energies to supply 17MW of solar photovoltaic modules for three solar projects in North Carolina. The supply deal will include Hanwha SolarOne's new S Series modules.
"Hanwha SolarOne is thrilled to have O2 Energies as a partner in North Carolina," said Steve Kang, president of Hanwha SolarOne USA. "We are focused on expanding our presence in new regions around the U.S. as we pursue growth in the North American utility sector."
The modules will be used at O2 Energies' Cirrus, Chocowinity and Rockwell solar plants. Construction has commenced on all three projects, which are scheduled to reach completion in December 2014. Hanwha SolarOne's modules are already being delivered to the three project sites.
"O2 Energies chose the new S series Hanwha module because of its anti-PID technology and 1000 Volt UL certification, which is important for the string inverter design of our Rockwell Solar project," said Olee Joel Olsen, president of O2 Energies. "Hanwha SolarOne is known for its quality and financial strength, making our investors comfortable with financing projects that use Hanwha SolarOne modules."
