June 14, 2013 - China Sunergy Co., Ltd. today announced that it has begun shipping solar modules from its plant in Istanbul, Turkey, and will deliver a total of approximately 6.4MW from mid-June to August 2013 to a well-known French customer.
China Sunergy currently has a total production capacity of 100MW in solar cells and 300MW in solar modules at its Turkey facility. Being the Company's second largest production base, the plant will enhance the Company's global production chain and efficiently serve customers across Europe and globally.
Mr. Stephen Cai, CEO of China Sunergy said, "We are very delighted to announce our first contract win from Europe for the Turkey plant. The modules will be shipped directly from Istanbul, Turkey to France, which marks a significant milestone in our enhanced global production chain, as we believe our Turkey plant provides us with an effective buffer against the negative impact due to Europe's anticipated anti-dumping tariffs. We believe there are enormous demands for clean, green and affordable around the world, and we will continue to focus on technology innovation, to provide the most efficient and reliable solutions to our customers."
