South Korean manufacturer Hanwha SolarOne has surpassed 4GW of PV module shipments worldwide, the company has revealed in a statement.
Since Hanhwa acquired Chinese manufacturer Solarfun in 2010 to create SolarOne, the company has made “great strides” in expanding its presence, with its modules now on sale in 35 countries, according to its president Min-Su Kim.
“Since acquiring Hanwha SolarOne in 2010, the Hanwha Group has made solar the flagship of our business,” added chief executive Ki-Joon Hong. “We are building a lasting solar company that will power every corner of the world with affordable, clean and reliable solar power.”
In the past year, Hanwha SolarOne said its sales had been particularly strong in the booming Japanese and South African markets, which have respectively accounted for 28 and 19% of its 2013 sales.
The company said it was also fortifying its presence in the US market, with plans to expand its product range during the coming year.
Hanwha SolarOne will exhibit its latest products, including its next-generation HSL Series of modules, during Solar Power International at booth #1300.
