Solar Thin Films has said that the majority of tools required for customer Grupo Unisolar’s 6MW a-Si thin-film PV plant have been shipped. Its subsidiary, KRAFT Elektronikai Zrt. of Budapest, Hungary was responsible for the turnkey project. The contract is worth US$10.29 million, although it had originally been reported by the company as a US$12.3 million contract.
“We are delighted that this project is on track to date and we look forward to completing our equipment shipments and commencing installation in the coming months,” noted Peter Lewis, Group Vice President, Equipment and Thin Films Division. “This project is particularly important to KRAFT and to Solar Thin Films as it represents another step in our effort to transition KRAFT from an equipment supplier to a ‘turnkey’ systems supplier and because the equipment shipped includes improvements to the system as a result of the recently signed Cooperation Agreement between KRAFT and our new merger partner BudaSolar.”
Solar Thin Films acquired BudaSolar Technologies Co. Ltd. of Budapest, Hungary in April, 2009.
