Solar batteries production plant near Astana will be opened in 2012, head of KazAtomProm national company Vladimir Shkolnik said, KazTAG reports.

“By the end of next year the plant producing solar batteries will be in operation,” Shkolnik said at the ceremony of the capsule laying into the plant foundation near Astana. KazAtomProm and the Commissariat of Atomic Energy and Alternative Energy Sources of France signed a memorandum of understanding in the area of magnets and an agreement on KazP project intellectual property,” the company’s press release distributed before the ceremony said.

Construction of the plant is a part of the large-scale project which Kazatomprom implements with a French consortia led by the Commissariat of Atomic Energy and Alternative Energy Sources of France.

In the framework of the project Kazatomprom and the Commissariat plan to open a center for science, research and engineering of renewable sources of energy to develop and increase the existing innovation and technology base.

According to KazAtomProm, the plant in Astana will occupy an area of 7,000 square meters. There will be a unit assembling cells into modules, study halls, a centre of science, research, technology, engineering and testing. A plant in Ust-Kamenogorsk will be renovated to produce silicon cells at the total area of 10,000 square meters.

The launch of the project will create 500 more jobs for skilled professionals. The project is overseen by Astana Solar LLP, Kazatomprom subsidiary. After the construction is complete Astana Solar will start producing and selling the solar batteries. The projected capacity of the photoelectric plates to be produced will be 60 MW (equivalent to 250,000 panes) with an increase to 100 MW in the long term. It is expected that modules of 230, 270 and 210 Watt will be produced. The start of the full scale production operation of the plant is planned for the first quarter of 2013.

KazVP silicon to be refined to the “solar” quality in Ust-Kamenogorsk will be the primary product of the plant. The total cost of the project reaches 34 billion tenge (or $23 million). A respective agreement was signed by the French side during the visit of Kazakh delegation led by KazAtomProm president Shkolnik in Paris in May 2011.

A range of agreements between KazAtomProm and the French side on cooperation in solar energy were signed in 2010.
