Trina Solar expands polysilicon purchases

NEW YORK, Aug 25 (Reuters) - Solar module maker Trina Solar Ltd TSL.N said on Monday it had expanded a polysilicon supply agreement with GCL Silicon Technology Holdings Inc.

Trina’s Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co unit increased the amount of polysilicon it would buy from GCL to a level that would allow it to produce 4,825 megawatts of photovoltaic solar modules over eight years from the 2,600 megawatts it had announced in April.

For 2009, Trina said it now targeted 700 MW of solar cell and module capacity and silicon ingot and wafer production capacity of approximately 500 MW. (Reporting by Matt Daily; Editing by Steve Orlofsky)
