Dennis She, Senior Vice President of LONGi Solar and Jayant Parimal Chief Executive Officer of Adani Green Energy, signed the strategic partnership agreement in India.

LONGi Solar has announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership agreement with Adani Green Energy, where LONGi will supply Adani with its new generation Hi MO4 modules. The agreement set guidance of up to 1.2GW modules to be delivered to Adani by 2020. Both parties agreed to continue to deepen their strategic partnership over the next 3 5 years.

The electric power infrastructure in India is weak and photovoltaic energy has great potential for growth in the next five years. The strategic partnership agreement represents a strong alliance and “win-win” cooperation between the world’s leading energy investment company and the world’s leading solar technology company, and is a milestone in the development of global renewable energy, LONGi issued in a statement.

The Adani Group is an integrated business conglomerate in India that consists of six publicly traded companies with combined revenues of $13 billion. Its renewable energy subsidiary, Adani Green Energy, is one of the largest renewable companies in India engaged in the development of solar, wind and hydro energy with a current project portfolio of 5,290 MW.

Jayant Parimal, CEO of Adani Green Energy, said, “LONGi is a trusted partner with a leading position in product technology and financial health. LONGi’s high efficiency and reliable PV module products will help Adani deliver greater value to our customers and bring superior clean energy to India and the world.”

LONGi leads the solar PV industry with product innovations and optimised power cost ratio with breakthrough monocrystalline technologies. LONGi supplies more than 30 GW of high-efficiency solar wafers and modules worldwide yearly, about a quarter of global market demand. At present, it is recognized as the world’s most valuable solar technology company with the highest market value and a major power generation equipment supplier in the global solar energy field.

“We are very grateful to Adani for their trust and support. LONGi will seek to deepen our cooperation globally and mutually continue to improve the level of the strategic partnership,” said Dennis She, senior vice president of LONGi Solar. “As a driver in the global energy transformation, LONGi will continue to leverage its leading technologies and work with Adani to build best in class solar projects in India and the world, and to promote the rapid development of global renewable energy.”
