Solar Frontier surpasses 4GW of module shipments, reaching 11 more countries over last year

Tokyo-based Solar Frontier – the largest manufacturer of CIS (copper indium selenium) thin-film photovoltaic (PV) solar modules – says that total cumulative shipments of its CIS thin-film solar panels have surpassed 4GW, now reaching about 60 countries around the world. Some of the 11 new countries (accounting for about 1GW of modules shipped over the last year) include Norway, Somalia and Mongolia.

Solar Frontier attributes the landmark to its CIS solar panels' power generation capabilities as well as their economical and environmental advantages in real-working conditions – even in high temperatures or in partial shading.

Sustaining the shipments has been Solar Frontier's Kunitomi plant (with a nominal annual production capacity of 900MW) which has been fully operational since starting commercial production in 2011. Also, through Solar Frontier's efforts to boost the performance of its panels, this October the Kunitomi Plant began manufacturing solar panels with an output of 175W as a main product.
