Canadian Solar has announced that it has been awarded a module supply agreement to provide 18MW of photovoltaic modules to Hitachi for a solar power project in Japan. The project is owned by Eurus Energy Holdings Corporation with Hitachi as its EPC contractor.

"Quality and reliability are key criteria we use to select our partners and suppliers. After extensive evaluation we are impressed with the quality of Canadian Solar's PV modules as well as their track record of delivering high quality solar modules to large scale solar power projects worldwide," said Mr. Kosho Aikawa, Senior Engineer of Hitachi.

"We are honored to supply our high efficiency modules to Hitachi, a global leader in the electronics as well as the power systems industry," commented Dr. Shawn Qu, President, Chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar.

"This agreement reflects our position as a top tier solar module supplier with an industry leading customer base and our strong position in the Japanese market."

This 18MW solar power project, which is expected to be in operation in March 2015, is located in the boundary between Marumori-machit in Miyagi prefecture and Soma city in Fukushima prefecture, covering an area of 80 hectares.

Canadian Solar will supply approximately 73,556 pieces of its 60 cell high efficiency CS6P255P modules with power output of 255Wp for this project. This solar power plant will power approximately 5,000 homes and is expected to displace approximately 9,200 tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year. Electricity to be produced in the next 20 years will be sold to Tohoku Electric Power Co., Inc.
