Solvis manufactures 120,000 special solar panels for data centers in California owned by Google. The manufacturer of solar modules from the north of Croatia expects that the cooperation will continue when he fulfills the order.
Experts from the American technology giant Google and Swiss partners have been helping Solvis to develop special solar panels for more than two years. Google has ordered 120,000 solar panels from a Croatian company, with which it will equip its two data centers in California, reports Večernji list. Solvis has a solar module factory in Varaždin.
That manufacturer, which exports 80% of its performance, said demand had doubled its annual capacity and was 300 megawatts. It was founded in 2008, when such companies were few in Europe, writes Igor Todorović for Balkan Green Energy News.
Solvis CEO Stjepan Talan mentioned that Google intends to equip all its facilities with solar panels for electricity production and expressed optimism that the cooperation will continue.
Continuous investment in solar technology
The company employs 340 people and has ten models in its portfolio, with additional products. Solvis’ first two-square-meter solar panel had a power of 200 watts, while the capacity of its current equivalent is 500 watts and is ten times cheaper, Talan pointed out, adding that it is essential in this sector to constantly invest in improving technology.
Homeowners typically install systems of four to six kilowatts on the roof and it costs them between 40,000 and 70,000 kuna, or 5,300 to 9,200 euros, he revealed and said the investment pays off in six to eight years.
In Talan’s opinion, the European green agreement will stimulate domestic production of solar panels. He claims that the quality in Europe is better than in China, and that the price is only slightly higher.
Solvis is participating in a tender worth 28 billion dollars in India
Last year, Solvis launched the largest solar power plant project in all of Croatia. The company also produced panels for a 6.5-megawatt photovoltaic plant on Cres. It is already under construction, and will have the largest installed capacity in the country.
The company from the north of Croatia is participating in a tender in India estimated at 28 billion USD, for up to 47 million home electricity systems. State Energy Efficiency Services Ltd. (EESL) will order solar panels, batteries, LED bulbs and other equipment from the selected bidder.
