First Solar Inc. and PT Pembangkitan Jawa Bali Services (PJB Services) of Indonesia have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate on the delivery of 100 MW of utility-scale solar power plants in Indonesia.

"Indonesia has an increasingly urgent need for reliable, cost-effective energy resources," says Won Park, senior manager of business development and sales in Southeast Asia for First Solar.

The MOU, the first for First Solar in Indonesia, also represents the first foray into the development of utility-scale solar photovoltaic power plants for PJB Services, a provider of services for the operation and maintenance of conventional power plants in Indonesia.

The installations will use First Solar's thin-film PV modules and related system services and components.
