Spire Corporation has been selected by Sonali Energees Pvt. Ltd. (Sonali Solar) of Gujarat, India to provide a 25MW PV module turn-key assembly line. This assembly line will include a state-of-the-art Spi-ELTM electroluminescence tester and also has the ability to produce glass-to-glass modules for BIPV applications.
Roger Little, chairman and CEO of Spire Corporation said, “We are pleased to receive this 25MW PV production line order from Sonali Solar.
