Mondragon Assembly has announced the signing of an agreement with Karpat Solar for the supply of a production line for photovoltaic solar modules with a capacity of 100 MWp per year.
Karpat Solar has its facilities in the historical Romanian region of Transylvania and has ambitions to become the country’s first module manufacturer. This is the first phase of a large-scale project that will initially manufacture for the local market, but is ultimately targeting the European Union.
Mr Csomor Karoly, Karpat Solar’s CEO, commented: “We hope to have our facilities in full production before summer, which will allow us to tackle the Romanian market in autumn 2021 in this first phase. Currently, the use of renewable energy is growing exponentially in our country and we intend to make our small contribution in this regard. We will locally manufacture high-efficiency modules under the strictest quality parameters”.
Mr. Igor Herrarte, International Sales Manager at Mondragon Assembly, added: “This project shows that the European trend to promote alternative energies is a fact. In 2021 we will see how several module manufacturing projects materialise in Europe. They will be projects of a different nature, both in size and in manufactured product. We also expect technological diversification. In addition to standard modules, we will see companies launching modules for HJT, BIPV and other niche products suited to European demand, where Mondragon Assembly has the solution for all those new technologies”.
