Flextronics International Ltd and the Singapore unit of MEMC Electronic Materials Inc. have agreed to broaden their collaboration on the production of solar panels for MEMC's SunEdison subsidiary.

The two firms expanded the agreement to include the manufacture of solar panels from Flextronics' Clean Tech Supersite in Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Malaysia, the companies said. The MEMC-branded solar panels will be used by SunEdison for its solar photovoltaic projects, according to both firms.

The announcement follows an earlier agreement between the two companies signed in December 2010 under the terms of which Flextronics will manufacture solar PV panels for MEMC from its Newmarket, Ontario facility. Through the expansion, Flextronics expects to build approximately 270MW of solar panels annually for SunEdison in Malaysia, the companies said.

"This partnership provides additional module capacity to support SunEdison's growth worldwide as we work to meet the growing global demand for solar energy," said Carlos Domenech, president of SunEdison. "It also allows us to strengthen our relationship with Flextronics and build on what we are accomplishing together in Canada."

Production will begin during the second quarter of 2011.
