Italian solar manufacturer Waris has announced that it will double the production capacity of its manufacturing facility in Condino, following the signing of an agreement with distributor Solarmarkt Deutschland. According to Waris the developments mark the beginning stage of internationalisation for the company, while strengthening market presence in its Italian homeland.
The multicrystalline module producer’s 35MW facility in Trento, northern Italy, will see annual production capacity increase to 70MW. Waris claims the jump in production capacity is part of a wider “general revamping” process for the facility and company. Around 60 employees will staff the expanded 70MW plant.
The exclusive agreement for sale and distribution of Waris modules through Solarmarkt covers the central European sales region, where Waris aims to sell 20MW of modules in 2014.
