Module manufacturers Silfab Ontario and Heliene have partnered to create Helios Power Canada to provide access to larger production capacities and inventories.

“By sharing resources, we will be equipped to fulfil future contracts in a materially more efficient manner. By streamlining our operations, quoting capacities and offering a reduced vendor base, this consolidation of our companies' commercial capabilities will definitely achieve positive results for our clients,” said Paolo Maccario, Silfab's COO and General Manager

The company claims that Helios Power Canada brings a combined manufacturing capacity of 150MW and installed operating modules in Ontario totalling in excess of 75MW representing 25%of the installed solar base in Ontario.

Maccario said: “Helios Power Canada has committed to reserving a percentage of its manufacturing capacity for existing contracts, and it looks forward to being able to service new OEM contracts with a multitude of existing, new and enhanced product offerings.”

This summer, Silfab also joined forces with Trina Solar to supply modules to the Canadian market.

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
