MHH Solartechnik, Solar Frontier sign multi-year module contract

PV system integrator MHH Solartechnik has signed a multiyear contract to sell Solar Frontier’s next generation CIS modules to its German customers. Solartechnik will begin selling the modules in March, with the total volume of sales expected to exceed 100MW.

“We were very careful in deciding which thin-film company to partner with. Solar Frontier convinced us in three key areas: their highly-efficient production process, their environmental-friendliness, and sustained cost-effectiveness,” said MHH Solartechnik’s general manager, Günter Haug. “Thanks to this partnership with Solar Frontier, we will be able to offer our customers an even broader portfolio of innovative solar technologies in 2011.”

“This partnership with MHH Solartechnik is continuing proof of the trust the PV market is showing in Solar Frontier’s environmentally-friendly and cost-effective CIS modules. We are proud to be able to offer our new CIS modules to more customers in Germany through this partnership. Our new production facility in Miyazaki brings our total annual production capacity to 1GW, meaning that our industry-leading technology is prepared to meet worldwide demand for a new standard in affordable solar panel performance,” added Wolfgang Lange, managing director of Solar Frontier Europe.

Manufacturing of the CIS modules will take place at Solar Frontier’s newly-constructed 900MW factory in Miyazaki, Japan.

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

    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.
