CIS thin-film producer Solar Frontier is currently developing a 5MW solar power plant with TSK in Kuwait as part of an innovative project with c-Si technology for the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR).
Solar Frontier announced that it would begin shipping its CIS modules for the project at the start of December and expects the project to be operational by June 2016. TSK would be responsible for the construction and operation of the site over the next six years.
The PV power plant forms part of the Shagaya Renewable Energy Project and will operate as part of the Innovative Renewable Energy Research program at KISR, which is evaluating the performance of multiple renewable technologies, including PV, concentrated solar power (CSP) and wind.
