CIGS PV maker MiaSolé signs 600MW long-term framework agreement with juwi

MiaSolé of Santa Clara, CA, USA has completed a multi-year purchase agreement to supply its copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic modules to renewable energy project developer juwi Solar GmbH of Mainz, Germany.

This follows an announcement earlier this week of purchase agreements to supply juwi with 7.5MW of modules for use in the third and fourth quarters of 2010 for ground-mounted and rooftop projects throughout Germany, following 1MW of modules delivered to juwi in Q2/2010 for projects in Germany and San Antonio, TX, USA.

The new agreement outlines 50MW of shipments in 2011 and a total of 600MW to be shipped over the period of the deal. The framework agreement represents the next step in what has been a long-term relationship between the two parties.

“juwi has an excellent history of developing and executing projects on a number of continents,” says MiaSolé’s CEO Joe Laia. “We are happy to align our corporate strategy with their history and experience,” he adds.

juwi has been designing, building, financing and operating solar, wind and bio energy plants since 1996. juwi Solar in particular has so far installed about 1300 PV systems with a total capacity of over 500MW, including one of the world's largest solar power plants in Eastern Germany.

“The long-term nature and volumes outlined in the current supply agreement with MiaSolé enable juwi to continue its plan of rapid growth,” juwi Solar’s managing director Lars Falck. “In the prevailing unpredictable environment, MiaSolé is proving to be an outstanding partner... Quality and professionalism will enable MiaSolé to quickly gain market share,” he comments.
