Solibro ships CIGS solar modules

Solibro GmbH of Bitterfeld-Wolfen, Germany has begun shipping CIGS thin film solar modules to its customers.

“We are excited too see our first modules being installed in the field now”, says Solibro COO Johannes Segner. “The data from our reference test sites make us confident that the field performance of our products will meet our customers’ demanding expectations.”

Solibro says it has signed supply contracts for nearly its entire production, with photovoltaic system markers such as HaWi Energietechnik GmbH, Sunova AG, Geckologic GmbH, thermovolt AG, and Sunset Energietechnik GmbH.

Solibro is to increase its Bitterfeld-Wolfen plant capacity from 30 MWp to 45 MWp, and will build a second production line with a production capacity of 90 MWp. Both expansion projects have already begun and first modules from the 90 MW site are expected in Q4/2009.
