PROINSO opens subsidiaries in Italy and Greece

PROINSO opens subsidiaries in Italy and Greece with the aim of offering and transferring all the experience in the supply of modules, inverters and trackers to major engineering and construction installers in these markets.

PROINSO is the official distributor for SMA in Europe, having distributed in 2008, more than 140 MW of inverters. Similarly, we are going to offer customers in these markets the supply of Trina, Solarworld, Arinna, REC and thin film Nex Power modules. PROINSO will also offer the Greek and Italian market the competitive differential advantage of all their experience and advice in construction to developers and promoters in these markets who are facing projects of this magnitude for the first time. On the other hand PROINSO´s supply and logistics capacity allows EPC suppliers to meet supply commitments for modules and inverters, regardless of on-site delivery schedules. At present agreements have been signed both for the area of Puglia- ITALY and Thessalonica-GREECE for orders of more than 30 MW for the first quarter of 2009.

Strategic Agreement between PROINSO and Taiwanese manufacturer NEX POWER for Amorphous Silicon modules

The signing of the agreement will allow PROINSO to distribute the Taiwanese manufacturer's products in the European market. NEX POWER plans to begin marketing its modules by mid-2008, for this reason it will be relying on PROINSO as one of its main distributors in Spain and the rest of the markets in Europe. Significantly, the commercial strength of PROINSO, with more than 60 MW supplied in 2008, and highly skilled engineers when it comes to providing technical advice to customers throughout the life cycle of a project, has been led PROINSO to have been selected as a distributor. Currently PROINSO already has some orders for this type of modules for projects to be started in Spain after September 2008. When the new rates come into force for solar photovoltaics, one of the ways to help improve cost and investment / kWh will be the introduction of new technologies in silicon. Amorphous silicon technology is one of the technologies which are the so-called pioneers in this regard. Amorphous Silicon Technology enables diffuse radiation to be used more efficiently than traditional crystalline modules, allowing the production of energy to be greater than that of crystalline technologies in this type of radiation. The module has a low temperature coefficient, which causes it to behave better at high temperatures than crystalline technology.

PROINSO signs distribution agreement with TRINA for 2008 - 2009

The international module manufacturer Trina Solar has signed an agreement with PROINSO for the distribution of solar modules in the Spanish market. The agreement initially opens the door to cooperation between the two companies for the years 2008-2009. Initially the amount to be distributed in 2008 was established at 5 MW, which will be increased according to market demand and its evolution. It should be noted that one of the main advantages of TRINA SOLAR as opposed to other competitors is its strong commitment to vertical integration in the manufacturing process from ingots, wafers, cells to modules. Its modules range from 200-240 W, 200-220 W and 165-180 W. Its production capacity has risen from 150 WM manufactured in 2007 to exceed 300 MW by the end of 2008, a figure which will be increased for 2009.

Signing of agreements with inverter manufacturer SMA for € 22 m. and with module manufacturers ARINNA, YOCASOL

PROINSO has recently signed a major distribution agreement with the German company SMA, manufacturer of solar inverters, amounting to €22 m. PROINSO was already a distributor in Spain for the German company, a market in which it had become one of its main distributors. This agreement reached between our two companies represents a further step making the company an international SMA distributor, whose products are distributed worldwide by PROINSO.

The same sources indicate that the 2007 turnover of the company reached €45 million, "a figure that is expected to increase to € 200 million at the end of 2008, thanks in part to the significant distribution agreements recently signed both with respect to modules, and inverters and trackers.

These agreements include those reached with: the German company Arinna with a total power of 12MW distribution, with the company Yokasol (8mW) and Trina Solar (7Mw). PROINSO will distribute photovoltaic modules produce by these three companies. All these long-term agreements can be added to those the Spanish engineering company has with other companies on a stable basis such as ET Solar and REC. PROINSO currently has a capacity to supply 60 MW of modules for 2008.
