Solar Frontier K.K. Key Developments
Solar Frontier Signs Module Supply Agreements with Cypress Creek Renewables
Dec 29 15
Solar Frontier K.K. has signed agreements to supply its modules for a series of projects developed and financed by Cypress Creek Renewables. The three projects total over 20 MW in size and are located in and around the vicinity of Terre Haute, Indiana, USA. The EPC chosen to construct the projects, Vaughn Industries. Construction has begun on the first two projects, Pastime and McDonald, which Solar Frontier announced in October 2015. The new third project, Sullivan, is currently in the pre-construction phase. Charles Pimentel, COO of Solar Frontier Americas, said, "Cypress Creek Renewables has chosen Solar Frontier for these projects because of CIS modules' strong performance in low light conditions common to this region of the country and ultimately its ability to outperform crystalline in real-world conditions.
Solar Frontier Receives Follow-Up CIS Module Order for 6-MW US Array
Dec 24 15
Solar Frontier KK said that it will supply its copper indium diselenide (CIS) thin-film solar modules for a 6-MW solar project in Indiana. The company has signed the contract with Cypress Creek Renewables. This is the third supply agreement with the customer, following the 14-MW deal for two photovoltaic (PV) schemes from early October this 2015.
Solar Frontier and TSK Sign Agreement for Solar PV Energy Facility in Kuwait
Dec 1 15
Solar Frontier K.K. and TSK have signed an agreement for 5MW CIS solar photovoltaic, or PV, energy facility in Kuwait. The new CIS installation will be used to evaluate the performance of CIS in Kuwaiti desert conditions as part of a larger government project known as Shagaya Renewable Energy Project. Solar Frontier will start shipping its CIS modules at the beginning of December of 2015 and TSK will handle the construction as well as operation of the site for the next six years. The new PV power plant is scheduled to begin operating from June 2016. The Shagaya Renewable Energy Project is part of the Innovative Renewable Energy Research program run by the Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research. The first stage of this program consists of testing the performance of multiple renewable energy facilities, including PV, concentrated solar power (CSP) and wind. TSK has been selected to construct the first 10 MW PV project, consisting of two 5 MW photovoltaic plants, as well as a 50 MW CSP plant. Solar Frontier's CIS modules make up one of the 5 MW PV facilities and will be compared to a side-by-side crystalline silicon PV plant to help Kuwaiti authorities evaluate the suitability of PV technologies for subsequent phases of the project and other similar facilities to be developed in the future.
