Nov. 25, 2013 - Hanwha SolarOne today announced it will supply more than 170,000 HSC 60 Poly Can-Am modules to the 42.5MW Ontario Solar Photovoltaic Farm. Hanwha Solar Canada, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hanwha SolarOne, will manufacture the modules in Ontario, Canada. Hanwha Q CELLS is building the project, owned by Fiera Axium Infrastructure, located across four sites in Ontario.
"Canada represents a significant part of our growing sales network, as Hanwha SolarOne is on pace to increase module shipments to North America by more than 60 percent this year," said Steve Kang, President, Hanwha SolarOne USA. "Canada is a pillar of Hanwha SolarOne's long-term growth strategy in North America."
The solar farm, scheduled for completion in early 2014, will generate up to 50 gigawatt hours of electricity annually, enough energy to power 5,000 average Ontario households, reducing the province's carbon footprint by 25,000 tons. Shipment of modules has already commenced.
"Hanwha SolarOne is an ideal supply partner in Canada, with high quality modules manufactured locally in Ontario, backed by the Hanwha Group," said Juan Caceres, Senior Vice President, Fiera Axium Infrastructure.
