Jun 9, 2014 - Qatar-based renewable energy firm Qatar Solar Energy (QSE) said yesterday it had opened a photovoltaic (PV) components manufacturing facility and unveiled plans to boost its capacity to 2,500 MW.
QSE makes PV components designed for sun-belt regions and is also engaged in research, technology development and solar project development. Its plant, touted as the largest of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, is expected to reduce dependence on hydrocarbon fuels.
Today, the company also lauded a 150-MW solar order from Jermyn Capital for Japan and a deal with Power Capital for an additional 150 MW of PV equipment to Thailand. It did not provide further details.
Currently, QSE's solar production capacity stands at 300 MW. The company is partnering with a range of solar technology firms in the ingot, wafer, cell, module and deployment segments.
