Moser Baer Solar to complete over 100MW of PV installations in first quarter

Moser Baer Solar Systems plans to complete over 100MW of installations in the first quarter of 2011 with projects undertaken in Gujarat, Rajasthan and Orissa, India. Projects in the fourth quarter of 2011, such as a 5MW plant in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, in the third quarter under the NVVN migration scheme and a 30MW Project in Gujarat were also completed and operational, according to the company.

“Till end December 2011, Moser Baer Solar Systems has commissioned 41MW of solar PV projects, thus emerging as one of the major players in the field,” noted K.N Subramaniam, CEO, Moser Baer Solar Systems.

“The sharp decline in module prices and input costs coupled with liquidity challenges has severely affected the PV sector in the recent past and will continue in the near future. It is notable that the market has started to differentiate the top tier segment on account of quality, economics and demand supply equilibrium. We are working towards a robust efficiency upgrade strategy using MIST technology to enhance our PV cell efficiency to 21% by leveraging our strong in house R&D and execution capabilities across multiple technologies,” added Subramaniam in a statement covering Group financial results for its FY3Q11.

Moser Baer Solar had previously outlined plans to migrate to high-efficiency cell technology in January 2012, using a MIST (Metal and Intrinsic layer Semiconductor Technology) suite of processes.

Moser Baer also highlighted that it had seen strong demand for ground mounted PV projects in India in January 2012, saying that about 120MW of PV capacity was installed in India that month, while acknowledging more than 600MW of PV power plants had been commissioned under the Gujarat Solar Mission.

Publications

  • Photovoltaics International 23rd Edition

    This issue of Photovoltaics International, our 23rd, offers key insights into some of the technologies that are ready to move from lab to fab in support of these goals. ISC Konstanz offer a glimpse of what the low-cost, high-efficiency solar cells of the future might look like. On page 35 the institute’s authors give an overview of what they call Konstanz’ “technology zoo”, encompassing their so-called BiSoN, PELICAN and ZEBRA cell concepts, all of which are aimed at increasing energy yield at the lowest possible cost.
