Canadian Solar has completed the grid connection of a 10MW ground mounted solar power project in eastern China.

The project, in Sihong County in Jiangsu Province, was developed by CSI Solar Power (China), a subsidiary of Canadian Solar, with Gaochuangte New Energy as the EPC contractor.

Construction started in September 2013 with grid connection completed in December, Canadian Solar said.

Approximately 40,788 CS6P-245P modules with power output of 245Wp were used in the project, which will have average annual electricity generation of over 11m kWh.

Canadian Solar chairman and chief executive officer Shawn Qu (pictured) said: “We are glad to announce the completion and grid connection of this project, following the one we completed in western China.

“This project is another good demonstration of Canadian Solar’s success in the development and construction of utility-scale solar power plants on a global basis as well our growing momentum in China, a rapid growing emerging market that is poised to become the world’s largest solar market in the years ahead.”
