Flextronics and MEMC Electronic Materials Inc. have expanded an agreement between Flextronics and MEMC's affiliate, MEMC Singapore, to produce solar panels for MEMC's SunEdison subsidiary.
This partnership expansion includes the production of solar panels from Flextronics' Clean Tech Supersite in the port of Tanjung Pelepas, Malaysia. The MEMC-branded solar panels will be used by SunEdison for its solar photovoltaic projects, Flextronics says.
This announcement follows an earlier agreement between the two companies signed in December 2010 under the terms of which Flextronics will manufacture solar PV panels for MEMC from its Newmarket, Ontario, facility. Through the new expansion, Flextronics expects to build approximately 270 MW of solar panels annually for SunEdison in Malaysia.
