Taiwan-based NexPower Technology has announced that it will ship approximately 12MW of its a-Si thin-film modules for use in Japan-based projects. The company plans for these shipments to be spread across three promotional channels: local distributions, EPCs and construction developers.

The company plans to show its new range of 160W thin-film modules at the PV Expo show in Tokyo, running from February 29th to March 2nd.

“So far, NexPower modules have been installed on more than one hundred roofs in Japan,” commented NexPower’s VP of sales and marketing, Charles Chen. “NexPower modules have the advantage to be installed facing a wider range of angles and directions. Moreover the black colour of the modules makes them a nice fit for the building.”
