Motech capacity utilization rising due to urgent orders


Taiwan-based solar cell maker Motech Industries has increased utilization of its production capacity after landing urgent orders for shipments in January-February, according to company chairman Simon Tsuo. Although solar cell prices have fallen to a bottom level, it is still uncertain whether such prices will rebound, Tsuo said.

Tsuo added that it is very likely for installations in Germany in January-April 2012 to exceed the limit of 225MW, which means a 15% incentive cut in mid-year is quite possible.

Judging from orders in the first quarter, Tsuo noted that 2012 should be better than expected. Installations in 2012 may be flat or show a 10% growth comparing to 2010.
