New renewable energy partnership

Issue 2 2022 News

SolarWorld Africa, an importer and distributor of solar products in southern and sub-Saharan Africa, has partnered with Meyer Burger Technology AG, a European manufacturer of high-performance solar cells and modules, to serve the renewable energy sector in the region.

As the exclusive distribution partner for southern and sub-Saharan Africa, SolarWorld Africa will now offer Meyer Burger’s high-performance Heterojunction/SmartWire solar modules in the region. Meyer Burger’s products are designed to perform best under hot conditions and offer up to 20% higher energy yields than standard solar modules.

Says Gregor Küpper, managing director of SolarWorld Africa, “We are proud to welcome Meyer Burger and their products into our product distribution portfolio. The outstanding quality and advanced technology will result in lower levelised cost of electricity and let the owner of the system benefit over at least 30 years, much longer than the standard technology currently sold in Africa.”

Made in Germany, designed in Switzerland, Meyer Burger products are of the highest technical standards, making them extremely durable. Thanks to the production processes and patented Heterojunction/SmartWire technology, they offer superior cell stability and maximum resilience with a high breakage resistance.

Sven Stoffers, head of sales at Meyer Burger says, “Solar installers, EPCs and developers can now benefit from our technological advantages for their projects in Africa. With the service structures and the international network that SolarWorld Africa has built and maintained, it offers peace of mind that our products will be used by quality and performance orientated solar specialists.”
