AU Optronics advised that it has officially launched its EU project, which aims to be the first “made-in Europe” solar integrated service alliance in the PV industry. The company’s Czech Republic solar module factory will act as its manufacturing centre and allow it to provide made-in-Europe solar modules. AUO noted that it is in talks with strategic partners and expects to start the project by the end of this year.
"The European solar market has been filled with an atmosphere of anti-dumping" said Dr. L.J. Chen, president of the solar business operation at AU Optronics. "Our solar module plant in Czech Republic has the advantage of local manufacturing and is able to fulfil European clients' needs nearby, helping to strengthen customers' competitiveness. EU project is to provide an open platform with resource sharing concepts and it will become the best solar solution under anti-dumping policy. We sincerely welcome worldwide partners to join this strategic alliance with us."
AUO’s Brno, Czech Republic solar module factory was established in 2010. The site has a 150MW capacity, with the company’s modules obtaining UL, IEC, GSE and MCS certifications.
