Solar cell and module equipment supplier 2BG has ramped up a 15MW turnkey module line for the AV Project company in Avellino, Italy. The update of the line, which was installed in January, is the second 2BG line installed with the company and will allow the upgrade of AV’s production capacity with the latest automation solutions. The original line was designed to process 48 cells per module, while the new line handles 60 cells per module.
AV Project purchased the first system in 2008. The two systems were configured in such a way as to minimize the disruption to production at the site. The companies further revealed that AV Project is in discussions with 2BG to construct a new project using 2BG’s equipment.
