China Sunergy Ships 72KW Order to Dubai for Carillion Construction
China Sunergy Co., Ltd. is a specialized solar cell and module manufacturer, who today announced that the Company had shipped 72KW multi-crystalline solar modules earlier this month to Carillion Construction Ltd, a UK-headquartered multinational company dedicated to sustainable and green energy projects.
China Sunergy’s solar modules would be installed in a trial project of Emrill, in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Emrill is one of the leading integrated facilities management companies in the United Arab Emirates, and an affiliate company of Carillion Construction. This project would mark China Sunergy’s first shipment into the United Arab Emirates.
With its rich solar irradiation and government support policies, such as incentives to utilities and renewable energy targets, United Arab Emirates is one of the most promising emerging solar markets in the world. In January 2012, Dubai also launched a US$3.27 billion solar initiative, for a solar park which will reach a projected total operational capacity of 1GW by 2030. This represents tremendous opportunities considering Dubai is presently almost 100% dependent on natural gas for electricity generation.
Mr. Stephen Cai, CEO of China Sunergy commented, “We are pleased to deepen our partnership with Carillion Construction. Dubai solar market possesses excellent growth potential. Our strategic move into the United Arab Emirates solar market is crucial for China Sunergy amid current macroeconomic and industry uncertainties. This also demonstrates our commitment to continuously diversifying our revenue and growth base with trustworthy partners.”
