Yingli Green Energy Holding Co. Ltd has signed a sales contract with Maessa Telecomunicaciones, Ingenieria, Instalaciones y Servicios, S.A. (MAETEL), a Spanish EPC company that belongs to the industrial division of A.C.S. Group, one of Europe's largest infrastructure development companies. Under the terms of this contract, Yingli has agreed to supply 33MW of PV modules to MAETEL from the beginning of October 2010 through the end of April 2011.

The PV modules to be supplied are expected to be installed in a PV solar power plant located in Curbans, France.
