Berlin - DW

Germany\'s insolvent Q-Cells solar company will be taken over by the South Korean conglomerate Hanwha. The group has promised to make huge investments and save jobs in an economically depressed region. Q-Cells of Germany, the erstwhile global leader in its market, found a new owner on Wednesday, as a decisive creditors\' meeting opted to put the fate of the insolvent company into the hands of South Korea\'s Hanwha Group. Hanwha took the upper hand over the Spanish co-bidder, Isofoton, by promising larger investment and the safeguarding of jobs. Hanwha and Q-Cell\'s insolvency administrator had already signed a takeover contract last weekend that involved pledges not to close a core facility in Bitterfeld, Germany, and another one in Malaysia. The deal reached also included the safeguarding of about three-quarters of the 1,550 jobs left in the company. New ray of hope According to media reports, Hanwha agreed to pay 40 billion euros ($50.18 billion) for the takeover, while also absorbing liabilities to the tune of 220 million euros from Q-Cells\' Malaysian subsidiary. Q-Cells filed for insolvency in April of this year after not being able to pay back a 200-million-euro loan, with liabilities from a 375-million-euro line of credit still coming up in 2014 and 2015. The Bitterfeld-based Q-Cells has been among a handful of solar companies that have fallen victim to fierce competition from subsidized Chinese firms, which have frequently been accused of having price-dumping policies.
