Swiss PV solution company HopSol has entered into a three-year contract with Solar Frontier. The deal will have a market focus in Southern Africa with Solar Frontier delivering double digit megawatts of its CIS solar panels for solar projects in countries such as Namibia, Botswana and the Republic of South Africa. The companies did not reveal the financial details of the supply deal.
“The countries of Africa’s sun belt are especially interesting to us,” said Wolfgang Lange, managing director of Solar Frontier Europe. “The reason is simply that the durability and reliability of Solar Frontier modules give us an advantage for leadership there, where the market has huge growth potential. Working with HopSol benefits Solar Frontier in terms of knowing both the demands of Africa’s extreme climates and its markets. Together we will be able to install our ecological and economical CIS modules for a progressive contribution to this continent’s energy supply.”
