Mr. Jay SEO, Chief Financial Officer and Head of China Business of Hanwha SolarOne, commented, "This attractive and profitable distributed generation project in Southern China is part of a cooperative business development agreement with a large well-established state-owned enterprise (the "SOE") signed in 2013. The agreement also sets out aims for Hanwha SolarOne and the SOE to further collaborate on the development of PV solar plants across China in the near future. We have successfully completed other large-scale EPC contracts in China and will use this track record to assist us in developing our PV project portfolio as an IPP, as well as other additional downstream activities."
