Solar Factory Krasnodar
Russia / Krasnodar - Construction of a production of monocrystalline solar cells and modules
General Conditions of the project
Because of the availability of fossil fuels the solar energy had so far no significant importance in Russia. The decision of the Russian government in 2013 to promote renewable energies by 2020 (of them solar energy 1.8 GW) has internationally directed and promoted attention to the economic opportunities who are offered. The decision by the Russian Government serves among others an incentive for investment. The framework has been significantly influenced by set a "local content clause", high share of added value (≥ 50%) in their own country.
DPU Investment GmbH is concerned with the promotion and establishment of solar energy since 2009, has sifted the market, establish contacts, and set an example on the grounds of the Space Museum in Moscow with the realization of a PV pilot project in the context of the solar roof program of German Energy Agency (dena) and renowned German partners in October 2010, and closed an agreement to develop a project for the construction of a solar production in Russia by OOO "Kvant" in May 2011.
Design and build a production of monocrystalline solar cells and modules with a capacity of 130 MW in Russia / Krasnodar based on the technology of Roth & Rau AG / Meyer Burger.
