Mitsui Orders Solar Frontier Modules For Japanese Projects


Solar Frontier says it has received orders from Mitsui & Co. Ltd. and its partners for 92,000 of its copper indium selenide (CIS) thin-film modules for use in utility-scale solar projects throughout Japan.

Totaling 14.1 MW, these CIS modules will be installed in four projects, starting with Yamanashi Mega-Solar (provisional name) in Kai City and Nirasaki City, Yamanashi Prefecture.

Mitsui and its partners have announced plans to invest 9 billion yen in the operation of utility-scale solar projects across 10 locations in Japan during fiscal 2013, including at least four projects using Solar Frontier modules. Panel delivery for one of the projects began in early November, and delivery for the two projects in Yamanashi Prefecture is scheduled to start soon.
