"These contract wins are also an important step for Trina Solar to continue gaining brand recognition in some of the most strategic solar PV markets in Europe and positions Trina Solar well to further expand its presence in these important markets."

During the first half of 2007, Trina Solar claims that it made significant progress towards consolidating its position in Germany and penetrating the solar PV markets in Spain and Italy. The company’s contract wins during the period include: a 6MW contract with Enerpoint in Italy to supply solar modules over the next three years; a 22 to 33MW contract with Tecnospot in Italy to supply solar modules over the next three years; a 20MW contract with Enereco in Italy to supply solar modules over the next three years; and a 40MW contract with IBC Solar in Germany to provide IBC with solar modules over the next two years, extendable to a higher volume.

"We are extremely pleased with our progress in the European market in general and with our very strong presence in the fastest growing solar PV module markets in Spain and Italy," said Jifan Gao, Trina Solar’s Chairman and CEO. "Our outlook remains positive, and as we enter the seasonally stronger quarters of the year and continue to expand our geographic footprint into new markets, we anticipate significant growth in revenues as we establish Trina Solar as one of the top global solar products companies."
