As a result of what Danfoss Solar is calling a period of very strong sales, the company has announced plans to expand its production and logistics capacities by moving to larger facilities at the company’s Nordborg, Denmark headquarters. Danfoss states that it has outgrown its supply chain facilities in Gråsten and Sønderborg, Denmark and with this move will be able to not only increase their 2011 capacity to 3.5GW, but have the ability to double the assembly size in a few months.
Production at the new location is expected to start in the first quarter of 2011, with the move finalized by the end of next year. In addition, Danfoss will be expanding its China and US facilities to facilitate the demand for solar inverters.
“Expanding our activities in Denmark, the US and China will enable us to achieve the growth and earning targets for Danfoss Power Electronics that have been set out in the new strategy for the Danfoss Group,” says Troels Petersen, president of Danfoss.
