Wellkey Solar Technology Co. Ltd has today signed an agreement with Sanshui Government of Foshan City, Guangdong Province, to set up its Photovoltaic Module production line in LePing High Tech Industrial Zone near Guangzhou Airport.


A total investment of RMB 2.8 billion has been planned to develop the solar PV integration system in Sanshui, which will have an annual PV module production output of RMB20 billion with tax contribution of not less than RMB0.3 billion. The first phase of the project will begin commercial production in first quarter of 2011, with annual PV module production capacity of 100 MW, and PV mounting system production capacity of 300 MW.

"our expansion plan is to have total annual module production capacity of 1 GW in 5 years, using state-of-the-art technology of polycrystalline PV cell," said by CEO, Mr. Benson Wu, " by then, Wellkey will be able to offer one stop solution to the system integrators with its PV modules and mounting system. We are proud to be able to work with Sanshui government which has the vision of developing green energy industry as its future pillar support for local economy, and which offers strong administrative and financial support to renewable energy companies."

"for the transitional period, in order to offer full supplier chain support to the system integrators, we have secured sizeable module production capacity from our business partners, and we can start supplying PV modules to our customers now, which has been searching module supplying sources for quite some time due to global shortage," said Mr. Benson Wu.
