Nanjing, China, March 30, 2012 — China Sunergy Co., a solar cell and module manufacturer, has begun assembling solar modules in France through operations, engineering and maintenence cooperation with KDG Energy, a French manufacturer of photovoltaic modules.
The first order will be delivered to Akuo Energy Group, a developer, investor and operator of renewable energy plants across the world.
In October 2011, China Sunergy initiated OEM cooperation with KDG Energy. Both parties entered into a memorandum of understanding in November 2011, under which KDG Energy will manufacture solar modules for China Sunergy in France, under CSUN's brand name. China Sunergy will send the required components to KDG for the fabrication of such modules.
Such modules assembled by KDG Energy for China Sunergy will be labeled as "CSUN Made in France", and will satisfy the following three criteria: that the string of cells, lamination and flash tests are all carried out in France.
