May 10 (Renewables Now) - UK-based multicrystalline silicon wafer supplier PV Crystalox Solar Plc (LON:PVCS) said yesterday it has received an initial portion of EUR 14.5 million (USD 17.3m) from the arbitration award it secured in November last year.
The award requires a customer of the company to pay EUR 36.5 million including interest as at May 1, 2018. PV Crystalox is continuing discussions on a payment schedule for the remaining amount.
The customer had failed to purchase wafers in line with its supply contract. The parties are also negotiating a reduction of the award payment in exchange of non-delivery of the 22.9 million wafers outstanding under the supply contract.
