REC Group selling off wafer and cell equipment from closed facilities in Norway

As part of REC Group's previously announced closure of certain wafer and cell production plants in Norway, a sale of the equipment from three plants is to be organized by surplus asset management firm, GoIndustry Dovebid. All equipment and components were said to available for sale by private negotiation.

According to GoIndustry Dovebid, REC’s former solar wafer manufacturing plants, Heroya I & II and Glomfjord, have a capacity of 775MW and contain Generation 4 state-of-the-art equipment from Meyer Burger, HCT, ALD and GT Solar, amongst others.

The 200MW solar cell manufacturing plant in Narvik is said to be equipped with Schmid, Roth & Rau, SierraTherm and ASYS equipment.

Facilities support equipment is also up for grabs, which includes a De-ionised Water Plant, Carrier Chillers, Atlas Copco air compressors and a large inventory of components.

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
