Solar Frontier and BELECTRIC have connected what they claim to be the world’s largest CIS thin-film solar power plant in Bochow, Brandenburg, Germany. The project’s investor is CommerzReal and the financing is provided by HypoVereinsbank (HBV) /UniCredit.

Approximately 205,000 uniformly black finish Solar Frontier CIS thin-film modules have been installed in Bochow, produced at Solar Frontier’s gigawatt-scale Kunitomi plant in Miyazaki, Japan. Certifications have been issued by TUV Rheinland Japan (in accordance with IEC), Underwriters Laboratories, and BRE Global (in accordance with Microgeneration Certification Scheme MCS).

“This collaboration with Solar Frontier is another milestone in our partnership. We decided to realize this project with Solar Frontier due to the efficiency and reliability of their CIS modules. Moreover, Solar Frontier’s long-term strategy and manufacturing expertise of CIS thin-film modules were additional key decision-making criteria for us,” said Bernhard Beck, CEO BELECTRIC Solarkraftwerke.
