Tianwei SolarFilms ramps production as 70MW supply deal signed

Tianwei SolarFilms has said that it has signed supply agreements totalling 70MW for solar projects within Southeast Asia. Tianwei started production of its a-Si:H thin film modules just three weeks ago, according to the company. Tianwei is a customer of Oerlikon Solar and has used Oerlikon’s special high-performance front and back contact technology to boost cell efficiencies.

"We are already seeing significant market opportunities for our cutting-edge solar PV modules," noted Ma Wenxue, General Manager, Baoding Tianwei SolarFilms.

"We congratulate Tianwei on securing this landmark agreement, which demonstrates both the rapidly-growing market for solar energy in the Asian market and the advantages offered by our own fast-ramp thin film PV production technology," comments Jeannine Sargent, CEO, Oerlikon Solar. 

Tianwei SolarFilms started production on the 18th, August, 2009, having a production capacity target of 8MW this year.

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
