Masdar supplies first full-size modules for Slovakian solar parks

At nearly six square metres, the full-size module from Masdar PV is almost as big as a garage door. The leading manufacturer of innovative products and solutions in thin-film photovoltaics is for the first time ever supplying these large thin-film modules for three solar parks with a capacity of 1 MW each to be built in Slovakia.
Masdar supplies first full-size modules for Slovakian solar parks

The Hungarian developer and system integrator, Raabvill Kft., has contracted Masdar PV to supply a total of 6 MW of the silicon-based thin-film PV modules. The first 3 MW will begin supplying renewable solar energy in Slovakia in June 2011. The remaining modules will be installed later that summer.

The large surface area of the full-size modules means that overall system costs are reduced, allowing customers to obtain an attractive cost-benefit ratio. "Our 5.7 square metre large full size modules require fewer inverters and less cable for installation - so set-up and maintenance costs are lower. That creates unmistakable advantages for our customers and we expect the demand for our full-size modules to continue increasing for that reason", explains Dr. Matthias Peschke, Chief Operating Officer at Masdar PV. The COO is very pleased about working with Raabvill Kft.: "In Raabvill Kft. we have a highly experienced and successful partner with very good contacts, particularly with Eastern European investors and government agencies."

Raabvill Kft.'s decision to order from the Ichtershausen-based company is primarily based on the excellent quality of its solar modules as well as the high energy efficiency of 8 % that the modules deliver. With the financial strength of its parent company, Masdar of Abu Dhabi, behind it, Masdar PV also represents a reliable partner in Germany for Raabvill Kft. Peter Krupanszky from Raabvill Kft. puts it this way: "We see this initial large order as the prelude to a successful and long-lasting partnership between Masdar PV and our company."
