The roots of AZUR SPACE Solar Power

The roots are closely linked to more than 100 years of industrial history of AEG-Telefunken.

Founded in 1964 as a part of Telefunken, the company developed and manufactured solar cells for the first German satellite "AZUR", launched in 1969. Since that time, more than 10 million Si as well as 3 million GaAs solar cells have been provided for more than 550 space projects.

Please find below the video from the start of the first German satellite in 1969: 


The technologies initially developed by AZUR SPACE for space applications, are now used in terrestrial PV manufacturing and made AZUR SPACE to the pioneer of European photovoltaics.
