Chinese manufacturer LONGi will supply solar panels for a 230 MW solar power plant, which is being built by UAE company Masdar in the Garadagh district of Baku, Report informs referring to foreign media.

LONGi and Masdar jointly held a signing ceremony on June 14 in Masdar City, Abu Dhabi, for the supply of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules via Masdar’s wholly-owned affiliate Source Trading Company for the 230 megawatts (MW) Garadagh Solar Plant, the first utility-scale solar plant in Azerbaijan.
