DuPont Apollo, a subsidiary of DuPont, has opened its silicon based thin-film PV module manufacturing facility. The 538,000-square-foot facility will have an annual capacity of up to 50MW with a thin-film-on-glass photovoltaic module production line. Full-scale commercial production is targeted for the first-quarter 2010.
“The facility is unique because this is the first total solar energy solution provider in China. Under the ‘Shenzhen-Hong Kong Innovation Circle,’ we have combined our research and development capability with this state-of-the-art facility to support the continued growth of the photovoltaic market,” said Douglas W. Muzyka, president of DuPont Greater China.
