In the latest move by a solar manufacturer to take advantage of the lucrative feed-in tariffs in Ontario, the Siliken Group plans to build a crystalline-silicon photovoltaics module production plant in the Canadian province. Set for an initial capacity of 50MW, the factory could start operations in the last quarter of this year and create as many as 150 jobs, according to the Spanish firm.
Siliken says it is finalizing its site selection process and completing the necessary legal paperwork.
The new plant will join the company’s existing module assembly facilities in Valencia, Spain, and San Diego, CA. Siliken says it plans to increase it production capacity to 250MW.
