United Solar Ovonic LLC, has announced that it has entered into an agreement with South Korea’s AirTec System Co. for 25 megawatts (MW) of UNI-SOLAR brand thin-film laminates for integration into large-scale power projects. Under the terms of the agreement, AirTec will take delivery of the UNI-SOLAR laminates during calendar years 2008 and 2009.

The laminates will be used for medium and large scale ground-mounted solar power plants and large-scale rooftop and building integrated applications in a number of  projects in South Korea. The agreement with AirTec is structured on a “take-or-pay” basis.

“We continue to increase our presence in the South Korean solar market, one of the fastest growing photovoltaic markets in the world,” said Mark Morelli, president and CEO of United Solar’s parent company ECD Ovonics. “The Korean market clearly endorses the unique value proposition offered by our UNI-SOLAR products for rooftop systems where our product features a cost-effective solution.”
