First Solar and PJB Services sign MOU to develop 100MW of utility-scale solar power plants in Indonesia

First Solar Inc of Tempe, AZ, USA, which manufactures thin-film photovoltaic (PV) modules based on cadmium telluride (CdTe) as well as providing engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services, and PT Pembangkitan Jawa Bali Services (PJB Services) of Indonesia, a provider of services for the operation and maintenance of conventional power plants, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate on the delivery of 100MW of utility-scale solar power plants in Indonesia. The MOU is the first for First Solar in Indonesia and one of several related to the firm's strategy of forging strategic alliances in fast-growing, sustainable energy markets worldwide.

“Indonesia has an increasingly urgent need for reliable, cost-effective energy resources. The agreement with PJB Services facilitates an ideal collaboration to provide Indonesia with the needed solution," said Won Park, First Solar's senior manager of business development & sales in Southeast Asia. "This MOU underscores First Solar's belief that the Indonesian market has great potential as a sustainable market where solar power can be a meaningful part of the energy mix."

The MOU represents an initial step in the collaboration between the two firms toward the development, engineering, procurement, construction, operation and maintenance of an approximately 100MW pipeline for solar PV power plants, including PV hybrid solutions, using First Solar's thin-film PV modules and related system services and components.
