As revealed in Hanwha SolarOne’s recent quarterly financial conference call, the PV module manufacturer is moving downstream to become a project developer and financier. As part of those business changes the company has formed a joint venture with project developer S.A.G. Solarstrom to initially build-out 20MWp of rooftop projects - mainly in Northern Italy - that are expected to be completed by the end of June 2012.

The roof-top systems were said to be installed on behalf of a joint venture company, in which the Hanwha Group, parent company of Hanwha SolarOne would hold an 85% share, while S.A.G. Solarstrom would have the remaining 15% holding.

The deal also included Hanwha Europe, Hanwha SolarOne and Hanwha SolarEnergy Corp.

S.A.G. Solarstrom said that Hanwha SolarOne’s PV modules would be used in the rooftop projects with the possibility of the JV installing a further 20MWp of rooftop projects that could be developed. No timelines were given for the other projects.

  • Photovoltaics International 25th Edition

    In this issue we offer some insights into what the next wave of photovoltaic technologies may look like as that upturn gathers pace. Industry observers have been in broad agreement that the major next-gen PV technology innovations won’t happen straight away. But there’s also little doubt that the search is now on in earnest for the breakthroughs that will come to define the state of the art in the industry in the years to come.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
