As India’s PV market starts to take-off so is the use of thin-film modules for large-scale projects. India’s high-temperature environment is suiting thin-film technology adoption and NexPower Technology is a also recipient of this emerging trend with a contract to supply 36MW of silicon thin-film modules to Wipro EcoEnergy, the cleantech business of Wipro.
“Since its inception, NexPower has been committed to advancing the development and application of solar photovoltaic technologies,” commented Arthur Chou, CEO, Nexpower “This strategic project with Wipro EcoEnergy is a milestone for Taiwan PV manufacturers and will help us grow our footprint in Asia, with an increased focus on the rapidly growing Indian market.”
G K Prasanna, President. Wipro EcoEnergy added, “Incorporating sustainability in mainstream business operations is more than simple green-washing. Through our investment with NexPower, Wipro EcoEnergy is now geared up to deliver the latest Solar PV Solutions to cater to the growing power-demand of governments, customers and even our own sustainability targets.”
The deal also includes engineering expertise on system design, servicing and delivering joint solutions to the end customer. NexPower said that the shipment of the modules had already begun.
NexPower that its total watt sold has recently grown over six times, from 10.3MW in 2009 to 73.8MW in 2010.
