Sulfurcell enters US market with its thin film solar modules


The Berlin based company, which is partly financed by Intel Capital, plans to develop a robust network of system integrators and installers throughout North America in the coming months.

“We’re confident Sulfurcell’s industry-leading thin film modules will enjoy broad adoption in the American market,” said Nikolaus Meyer, CEO of Sulfurcell. “Sulfurcell’s thin film modules combine black-tile aesthetics and high performance within a wide range of temperatures making them ideal for building integrated, residential and commercial rooftop applications.”

Since initiating commercial-scale production in 2005, the company has manufactured and sold over 100,000 modules, making it one of the three largest manufacturers of CIS/CIGSe-based thin film modules in the world. In 2008, Sulfurcell was provided €85 million (USD$110 million) in growth financing by renowned international investors, including Intel Capital and the BEU fund supported by Vattenfall Europe and Gaz de France. This capital was utilized for constructing new production facilities and for research and development.
