Solar Frontier to supply 100MW of solar modules to India's Welspun Renewables

Tokyo-based Solar Frontier - the largest manufacturer of CIS (copper indium selenium) thin-film photovoltaic (PV) solar modules - has signed an agreement to supply 100MW of modules to independent solar energy project developer Welspun Renewables Energy Pvt Ltd of New Delhi, India. The modules will be used in upcoming solar power projects in India at sites with high levels of solar irradiation.

"The government of India has set a target of 175GW of renewable energy by 2022, of which 100GW will be solar energy," says Welspun Renewables' director Sindoor Mittal. "Welspun Renewables is committed to achieving high-level quality benchmarks at all of its project sites, and because of this we prefer to work with tier-1 technology providers," he adds. "We have worked with Solar Frontier on multiple projects before, and we do so again based on the proven high electricity yield and quality of its CIS technology, on top of the company's close support."  

The supply agreement follows a recent spate of power purchase agreements (PPAs) that Welspun Renewables has signed with multiple state governments in India. The firm aims to commission more than 1GW of solar and wind capacity in fiscal 2015. Welspun is present in nearly all states in India.

"This is a landmark agreement for Solar Frontier as we continue to develop our presence in key international markets with companies that are sustainable and show willingness to work closely together," says Solar Frontier's CEO Atsuhiko Hirano.
