Flextronics has dedicated 1 million square feet to create a “Clean Tech Super Site” at its established facility in Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Malaysia. The electronics manufacturing services company already has a range of solar photovoltaics module production capabilities operational at the PTP location, with development plans to increase its site capacity to support 1GW of module production over the next two years.

The company said it expects the Clean Tech Super Site to result in technical advancements for solar products, increased outsourcing among OEMs due to cost and logistics advantages, and overall supply chain optimization.

Flextronics has established customer relationships with many leading clean-tech OEMs, including Cree Lighting, Carmanah, Oerlikon, SolarEdge, and Enphase. Update: Q-Cells has announced an initial 200MW module assembly sub-contract with Flextronics.

“Flextronics’ ability to offer the most robust line of solutions to OEMs across the quickly expanding clean-tech sector is a powerful competitive advantage,” said E.C. Sykes, president of Flextronics International. “Our focused strategic push into this space, a sector we have held a leadership position in for many years, is unique among global EMS providers, given our size, scale, and world-class logistics services. We are completely focused on being the partner of choice for OEMs in the clean-tech sector.”

“Malaysia is the ideal location for our Clean Tech Super Site because of customer proximity and established wafer and cell operations in the area. This is an exciting time for our organization, and we are very pleased by the progress with our clean-tech operations and are aggressively working toward its complete buildout,” he continued.
