 The industry shakeout in CIGS PV has been brutal.  In 2010 there were more than 25 companies with plans for over 1 GW of capacity, but to date only Solar Frontier has achieved the goal.  As the shakeout continued, there were even questions whether any new capacity would be added beyond the approximately 3 GW that was in place as the CIGS sector faced extreme price pressure from falling silicon based PV. Nonetheless, NanoMarkets believes that while multiple start-ups have either been liquidated or acquired, the remaining few large CIGS players are poised to add significant capacity.  
 
 This report will analyze the opportunities that are emerging for CIGS in this very new phase of the solar industry.  The report takes a detailed look into the technical...

Hydrographic survey is a process used to measure and describe the bodily features of oceans, seas coastal areas, lakes and rivers. The equipments which are required to do such surveys are known as hydrographic equipments. The main goal of hydrographic surveys is to ensure safe maritime navigation. Sometimes the term hydrographic surveys and maritime cartography are used synonymously; however maritime cartography is the final process of hydrographic surveys and is used to convert the raw data collected in hydrographic surveys to pull out some useful information. Hydrographic surveys are...
