Kaco new energy is investing €30 million in a new manufacturing plant to ramp up capacity by 4GW.
When completed, the 12,000-square-metre site will be the German solar inverter manufacturer’s fifth facility; it will primarily be used to produce three-phase inverters for Kaco’s TL3 series.
Kaco believes the climate neutral facility will allow flexible production, enabling quick response to fluctuating market conditions. A new testing plant has also been added to put the company’s inverters through endurance tests.
To date, 30 new employees have been hired to man the near-fully-automated site, although this number could increase to 150 should the company meet its expansion targets.
