Solar Energy Centre and Tianwei New Energy Group sign supply deal

Solar Energy Centre and Tianwei New Energy Group sign supply deal
Solar Energy Centre (SEC) has inked a supply deal with Tianwei New Energy Group, which is thought to be one of the largest ever signed by a UK company.

The firm is set to supply 20MWp of Tianwei Photovoltaic Modules in the first quarter of 2011 alone, with some estimates placing the total UK market last year at 40 to 50MWp.

SEC, which has been working in the solar energy industry for 34 years, said the signing of the deal follows a successful year in 2010, when it supplied "major projects across Europe".

Brian Harper, international sales director of the company, added: "During our long history in the solar PV market we have seen the transition into a commodity based market, with installers, understandably, demanding the most competitive pricing from an ever-growing choice of suppliers."

Tianwei New Energy Group is an affiliate of China South Industries Group Corporation, based in Chengdu in south-west China.

The company brought in RMB 2.4 billion (£225 million) in sales income from new energy in 2009, compared to just RMB 7.97 million in 2003.
