‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member GCL System Integrated Technology (GCL-SI) is supplying German-based PV systems supplier IBC Solar with 60MW of solar modules from a newly inaugurated module assembly plant in Vietnam.
According to GCL-SI the supply deal with IBC Solar furthers its attempt to increase its footprint in the European solar market as it ramps both production and geographical sales footprint outside China.
"IBC Solar has always put great importance on quality products. That's why we are pleased to have found a new partner in the module sector in GCL that meets our high standards," says Sebastian Geier, Director Product Management and Development at IBC Solar.
IBC Solar has developed around 3GW of projects in the utility and commercial solar sectors in many regions of the world.
The GCL-SI modules are expected to be delivered to IBC Solar before year-end with deliveries starting in September.
The first ever event dedicated specifically to solar PV Heterojunction manufacturing and multi-GW production challenges and opportunities. Meet the global community driving Heterojunction to multi-GW status in mass production today in the spectacular setting of St. Petersburg in Russia.
Going into its fifth year over 200 delegates from 150 companies and 20 countries representing the PV supply chain will gather in Malaysia to discuss the technology roadmaps for PV cell advancement in GW markets. The scope of the event has been expanded this year, to cover developments in wafer supply and thin-film investments and technologies alongside all the regular benefits to all stakeholders tracking PV technology and investment trends for the next 5 years.
