Swiss firm Flisom AG on Tuesday declared that it is open for global orders for its high-efficiency flexible solar technology.
The solar company, in which India’s Tata Industries is a strategic investor, held a roll-out event in Zurich yesterday, at which it showcased a number of applications including building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) modules for lightweight roofs and facades.
Flisom has a 15-MW roll-to-roll manufacturing plant, where it produces monolithically interconnected solar modules, using a CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium Selenide) technology developed by the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa). The company is looking for locations globally to expand its capacity, it said on Tuesday.
“We can scale up industrial production in a way that hasn’t been possible before for flexible CIGS solar technology – meaning Flisom's modules have the potential to radically transform the way the world uses solar,” CEO Rahul Budhwar commented.
Flisom has already formed partnerships with automotive, aerospace, and transportation companies. It plans to focus on the US, continental Europe and UK markets over the next year.
Budhwar recently told Renewables Now in an interview that the company has won several projects over 100 kWp, which are to be installed in 2017 and 2018.
