The solar PV facility will include solar thin-film and polycrystalline products, Parity Solar says.

The joint venture will also expand upon Parity Solar’s global pipeline development efforts by securing new projects in China, Middle East, Africa and South America, where CNBM has a strong presence in glass and concrete manufacturing and engineering.

“There are … tremendous synergies in applying CNBM’s solar glass, building material and raw materials strengths to create cost advantages both at the product, and system level,” says Scott Burton, Parity’s CEO.

“CNBM and Parity together have unlimited options and we will be aggressive in becoming a leader in several key areas such as large scale, low cost power stations, BIPV materials and global EPC and project development services,” he adds.
