Moser Baer to use its competitor First Solar Thin Film Panels

0 Comment

Moser Bear,the Indian Solar Company was one of the first customers for the now extinct Applied Materials a-Si SunFab Technology.The company had invested in a number of solar technologies quite early on,but has not managed to succeed in a single one much like the Abu Dhabi promoted Masdar.The Jack of all Trades strategy has come undone for both of these companies.While Chinese and some US companies have prospered despite stiff competition,most of the others have sunk.While most of AMAT customers have written off their investment in thin film equipment and factories,Moser Baer has not done so.But from its current action it seems to have given up at least in its thin film ambitions.Moser Bear has contracted for 25 MW of First Solar thin film modules.Note First Solar is the biggest thin film producer of  solar panels and a direct competitor to Moser Baer.So it seems that Moser Baer has pretty much abandoned its thin film panels since if it itself does not use its own panels,don’t think a 3rd party would do so.

First Solar modules for 25 MWp of Moser Baer solar projects

Moser Baer Clean Energy Limited (MBCEL) will procure 25 MWp DC of First Solar’s thin-film solar modules for its solar power generation projects.Delivery of the thin-film solar modules is expected to take place by the end of the first half of 2011.Lalit Jain, COO International Operations at MBCEL, says: “MBCEL is developing over 300 MWp of solar power projects in Germany, Italy, US, Australia and India and this marks the beginning of a mutually beneficial relationship in the long run
