A Greek solar installation firm has chosen Chinese technology to increase PV installments in Greece. ReneSola is to supply 100 MW of its Virtus PV technology to BIGSOLAR in a distribution agreement. 

ReneSola is quickly becoming an established BRIC company in Greece having already delivered 40 MW of its Virtus modules to the country earlier this year. The company said this has made the Chinese firm one of the country's biggest module suppliers.

The Virtus modules generate between 250 and 260 W of power. ReneSola said the modules have a high conversion efficiency and can withstand a mechanical load of up to 5400 Pa. The company will ship a total of 100 MW of Virtus modules directly to BIG SOLAR in the next 12 months.

Mr. Xianshou Li, ReneSola's chief executive officer, said: "We are pleased to be expanding our relationship with BIG SOLAR. This deal reflects not only our strong position in key solar markets like Greece, but also our continued push in global sales.”

Mr. Ionnnis Bitros, BIG SOLAR's president, said: "Our companies have successfully worked together since the beginning of 2011 and our efforts will be strongly reinforced by this exclusive agreement. Through BIG SOLAR, ReneSola is poised to become the leader of the Greek photovoltaic modules market, and we anticipate a long and mutually beneficial partnership for years to come."
