Belectric and Solar Frontier partner
Belectric Trading GmbH, claimed to be the world's largest solar EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) provider, has signed a three-year contract with Solar Frontier to sell and install Solar Frontier's proprietary CIS modules at a volume in the three-digit megawatt range, which will be produced primarily at Solar Frontier’s new gigawatt-scale facility in Miyazaki, Japan.
"Our visit of the gigawatt-scale production facilities in Miyazaki, Japan, exceeded all our expectations and we are convinced that Solar Frontier's CIS modules are ideal for our clients," said Martin Zembsch, managing director of Belectric Trading Germany. The MD said that the company was certain that this partnership would help drive CIS to a leading position in the European thin-film market.
Wolfgang Lange, managing director of Solar Frontier Europe said that the contract was the start of a long-term cooperation and will initially focus on distribution with a volume in the three-digit range over three years.
