September 27 (Renewables Now) - First Solar Inc (NASDAQ:FSLR) has won an order to supply 30 MW of solar panels for a portfolio of Polish projects owned by US energy company Getka Group and Polish sector player Unimot.

For the initial phase of the initiative, the US thin-film photovoltaics (PV) maker will produce the equipment at its manufacturing base in Ohio. The thin-film panels will be delivered in the first quarter of 2022, Getka Group said on Friday.

The specific projects, details about which were not available, will be executed as part of the first phase of a wider initiative between Getka and Unimot to diversify PV module supplies to Poland. Their goal is to use funds from EXIM to develop “cost-effective” solar generation in the European country with US-made solar panels.

The partners expect to make additional orders as Unimot expands its solar portfolio.

“Through our partnership with Unimot we will meet the increasing energy infrastructure needs of Poland with a focus on improving energy diversity and security in the region, while continuing to support innovation in low carbon technologies,” said Dariusz Cichocki, chairman and CEO of Getka Group.
