Spire Corporation has received a major new order from Mage Solar, which will include a 50MW automated module line that will be established in Dublin, Georgia, USA as the PV manufacturer strengthens its market position in the U.S. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.
“Mage [Solar] has been successful importing modules into the U.S. for a range of system projects. The manufacturing line that we are providing allows them to better control pricing for increased market penetration especially by adding significant Made in the USA value,” said Roger G. Little, Chairman and CEO of Spire Corporation. “Their factory will be able to provide up to 350 American jobs over five years.”
Module production is expected to start in late-April, 2011.
