Posted on 2008-12-04
SAN FRANCISCO and WUXI, China, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (NYSE: STP), the world's leading manufacturer of photovoltaic (PV) modules, today announced that it recently completed two solar power plants in Spain in collaboration with a+f GmbH, a subsidiary of the GILDEMEISTER group, whose high performance SunCarrier single axis tracker is a market leader.Suntech supplied approximately 50% of all modules utilized in an 8.5MWp solar plant in Alange and a 7.4MWp solar plant in Alconera. The modules were installed on over 450 a+f SunCarrier trackers, which increase the power efficiency of the solar systems by up to 32% above that of fixed mounted solar systems. In total the two solar plants will produce enough energy to power around 9,300 households and save carbon dioxide emissions of approximately 19,000 tons per year.a+f's Managing Director, Dr. Rico Wojanowski said, "Our advanced SunCarrier tracking technology is perfectly matched with Suntech's internationally acclaimed high output solar modules. The combination of these two products enabled us to efficiently use the land available and develop a high power output solar solution that can satisfy the energy needs of thousands of households."Jerry Stokes, President of Suntech Europe, said, "These solar projects illustrate the potential for inter-value chain collaboration to provide highly efficient and completely sustainable energy solutions. Suntech's dedication to producing premium quality, high power output solar products is a key factor leading to our strong brand recognition in Europe."Suntech has built strong partnerships with many leading solar project developers and distributors in Spain, Italy and Greece through the consistent supply of extremely reliable, high conversion efficiency solar modules. Suntech expects to ship over 230MW of solar modules to Southern Europe in 2008.
