Electric Co., Ltd. has announced the more than twofold increase in
production of PV modules at its Mexico Monterrey site. Current output
capacity for the site is 20MW annually, a figure that is expected to
reach 50MW following the planned production capacity increase.
The company’s aim is to more than double the company’s overall output from 260MW to 600MW by end of FY 2010. Operations are scheduled to start from December, reaching full capacity within this fiscal year.
The company also announced its intention to build a new ingot and wafer production plant in Salem, Oregon in response to increased demand. Combined with the company’s existing plant in Carson, California, total output is expected to reach approximately 100MW.
