China Sunergy has completed module deliveries for Indian solar developer Larsen & Toubro to build two PV projects in the BRIC country. China Sunergy, a specialised solar cell and module manufacturer, has said completing the shipment totalling 29.5MW for the PV projects makes the Chinese company an official supplier for the Indian firm.

China Sunergy has completed the shipment under two separate supply agreements to Larsen & Toubro, a solar developer headquartered in Chennai, India. The Chinese firm said the agreements for the PV projects have officially advanced the company, based in Nanjing, Jiangsu, into Larsen & Toubro's strategic suppliers solar business list.

China Sunergy's high efficient multi-crystalline modules will be deployed in two large-scale PV projects in India. These are a large scale rooftop project with 7.5MW installation capacity and a 22MW ground-mounted PV plant.

Larsen & Toubro is one of India's leading industry conglomerates in technology, engineering, construction, and manufacturing. The company has over 300MW solar projects executed or under-execution so far in the Indian market. China Sunergy, founded in 2004, designs, manufactures and delivers high efficiency solar cells and modules for PV projects around the world from its production centres based in China and Turkey.

Stephen Cai, CEO of China Sunergy, said the work with Larsen & Toubro should help both companies capture a greater share of India’s solar market.

Cai said: "With natural geographic advantages and government support, India is destined to become one of the world's largest and most dynamic markets. We are delighted to be a strategic supplier to Larsen & Toubro and we believe that Larsen & Toubro's outstanding market presence in India and China Sunergy's reliable and advanced products should benefit both of us mutually and place in an excellent position to capture a greater market share in India." 

The news from Sunergy and Larsen & Toubro is the latest example of Chinese and Indian solar firms working together to develop solar projects in India. In December last year, China’s ET Solar Group and Indian engineering consultancy Marigold Steel & Power, signed a cooperation framework agreement to jointly develop PV projects in the BRIC country.
