Order Focus: Anwell unit to supply at least 180MW in thin-film PV modules to distributor/developer

In what would be one of the largest orders for amorphous-silicon thin-film PV modules to date, Anwell Technologies' subsidiary Henan Sungen Solar Fab has received a deposit from an unnamed leading solar panel distributor/developer for a minimum of 180MW of amorphous-silicon thin-film PV modules to be delivered over the next three years. The deal would result in more than $300M in projected revenue on completion of the contract, according to Anwell. The first shipment is scheduled for delivery in October.

"We are delighted to receive this major sales order from our business partner," said Franky Fan, executive chairman and CEO of Anwell. "The partnership developed through the agreement will enable Anwell to broaden its reach to other regions as well as further increase the business momentum of our solar division in the overseas market."

Anwell's solar group began volume production in March using proprietary process equipment at its 40MW thin-film PV plant in Henan, China. The company said that manufacturing capacity will be further expanded to more than 120MW by the end of this year.

    Looking back, 2014 was a year of convalescence for a PV industry still battered and bruised from a period of ferocious competition. End-market demand continued apace, with analysts towards the end of 2014 predicting the year would see between around 45 and 50GW of deployment. That has begun to feed through to the supplier end of the market, with all the main manufacturers announcing capacity expansions in 2015 and further ahead.

    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.
