Solargiga Energy Holdings Ltd (HK: 757), China’s leading monocrystalline silicon solar ingot and wafer manufacturer, said Japan’s Sharp has signed a deal to purchase a new type of product from Solargiga -- 370 MW of solar modules – by end-2013.

The massive order sent Solargiga’s Hong Kong-listed shares soaring nearly 12% during Tuesday trade.

This represents a new business deal for Solargiga and Sharp after almost a decade-long supply and sales partnership which promises to further strengthen the sustainable tie-up between the two.

The most important aspect of this expanded arrangement is that Solargiga has now become the largest solar product supplier in China for Sharp, with shipment quantities far ahead of its peers.

Mr. Hsu You Yuan, CEO and Executive Director of Solargiga, said: “Facing the imposition of US and EU tariffs and countervailing anti-dumping duties on Chinese PV (photovoltaic) products, PRC PV companies are all actively developing other sales regions outside of the US and EU to ease the pressure of high tariffs.

“Since the Fukushima nuclear crisis in Japan, PV applications are more in demand by the market there.”

“Solargiga is committed to developing Japanese PV market so that we can occupy a strong presence in the country’s solar sector. We developed a new business area for us and Sharp after almost a 10-year supply and sales partnership during which Solargiga has become Sharp’s largest solar product supplier in China.”

Solargiga completed a cash capital increase of approximately 80 million hkd in late May 2013, with the solar firm having already completed a cash capital increase of approximately 427 million hkd in total within half a year to improve its financial strength.
