Taiwanese cell manufacturer Neo Solar Power has announced Quincy Lin will no longer serve as CEO, but has been approved as Chief Strategy Officer, effective 1 January 2013.

Lin nominated Dr. Sam Hong to succeed as CEO of the company, responsible for daily operations as well as Andy Shen as President.

In his role as CSO, Lin will be responsible for the planning, deployment and implementation of corporate strategies and the most effective allocation of corporate resources.

The company states that NSP has achieved break-even operation. In three years its revenues reached NT$10 billion (US$300 million).

Dr. Hong has more than 30 years of experience in the PV industry having served as Research Division Director of Photovoltaic Solar Energy Division at Industry Technology Research Institute (ITRI). In addition, Dr. Hong is Chairman of the Taiwan Photovoltaic Industry Association.

The company attributes its R & D advancements to Dr. Hong, when NSP’s polycrystalline Super18 solar cell and mono-crystalline Black19+ with a maximum efficiency of 19.4%, were showcased at EU PVSEC in October.

Shen is currently Senior Vice President of NSP Worldwide Sales and Marketing. Previously he served as Senior Director at TSMC, a semiconductor manufacturing company and Managing Director of TSMC-Europe. He has more than 25 years of experience in semiconductor engineering, sales and marketing.

Earlier this week, NSP announced the acquisition of a 15% stake of DelSolar. NSP has said it will be the surviving entity and remain the same company name post the merger.

  • Photovoltaics International 24th Edition

    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.

  • 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.
