First Solar will supply 30 MW of advanced thin film photovoltaic (PV) solar panels to power a portfolio of projects in Poland by U.S.-based Getka Group and Polish energy company Unimot.

The panels are part of the first phase of a strategic renewable energy initiative to diversify PV module supplies to Poland.

In this initial phase, the partners will use First Solar technology produced at its manufacturing facilities in Ohio, which is the largest solar manufacturing footprint in the Western Hemisphere. The PV panels will be delivered in the first quarter of 2022, with plans to expand as Unimot expands solar projects.

Unimot and Getka have previously partnered to pursue energy security initiatives in the region as a mechanism to support regional energy diversification programs. The companies recently signed a memorandum of understanding with NuScale to explore small modular reactor (SMR) deployment in Poland.

With the financial support of EXIM, the Unimot Group will develop cost-effective solar generation through U.S.-manufactured photovoltaic panels to support enterprises and large manufacturing plants in Poland.
