SolarWorld Korea Ltd. – a Joint Venture of SolarWorld AG and the Korean Solarpark Engineering Co. Ltd. – has secured the basic long-term supply of its solar factory in South Korea with solar silicon wafers with effect from the start of production in 2009. With the wafer manufacturer Nexolon Co. Ltd. SolarWorld Korea has concluded a contract for the delivery of 420 Megawatt (MW) of wafers that will come into force in 2009 for seven years and will thus secure the basic capacity utilization of module production. At the same time the Korean SolarWorld company has placed the orders for the production plants for module manufacture whose capacity will initially amount to 120 MW and can be doubled to 240 MW at the same production site. 'The build-up of our first production facility in Asia is proceeding according to plan', says Dipl.-Ing. Frank H. Asbeck, Chairman and CEO of SolarWorld AG. 'From here we will supply solar modules to the rapidly growing markets in Asia, especially Korea, starting in 2009'.
