TSMC and Centrosolar Group AG today have signed an agreement that makes Centrosolar the exclusive European manufacturer of crystalline solar modules for TSMC.
Under the agreement, Centrosolar will supply TSMC with an initial module capacity of 100 MW per year using solar cells provided by TSMC. The companies are also discussing the possibility of further collaboration in the areas of product development and process engineering.
Centrosolar plans to build up the capacity required for this agreement in a new production building adjacent to its plant in Wismar, Germany. The first deliveries under the agreement are due in the third quarter of this year.
