Neo Solar Power revises capital equipment spending plan

Taiwan-based solar cell manufacturer, Neo Solar Power (NSP) has revised down its previously planned capital equipment and materials spending plan as a result of the planned merger with DelSolar.

The current industry overcapacity and weaker than anticipated demand in key European markets had already impacted growth plans at the solar cell producer. However, with the merger plans with DelSolar at an advanced stage, excess capacity precludes the near-term need to source new production equipment.

NSP said that its capital spending plan established in mid-2011 called for approximately US$227 million in spending, including raw material sourcing. Push-out of production line expansions resulted in approximately US$45 million of unallocated CapEx, which will now not be needed.

In respect to accounting purposes, NSP’s new plan allocated approximately US$77 million to purchasing machinery and approximately US$150 million to procuring raw materials. The original plan of procuring raw materials from overseas suppliers had been completed in 3rd quarter, 2011.

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.
