Spire Corporation has received a multi-million dollar contract from Ryazan Metal Ceramics Instrumentation Plant Joint Stock Company of Ryazan in Russia to provide them with a turnkey 12MW module manufacturing line. This makes it the largest module producer in Russia, according to Spire.
“The project for organization of solar module production with 12MW yield using Spire equipment is the beginning of a large program in solar energy development,” said Mr. Karabanov S.M., Director General of RMCIP JSC. “We are sure that Spire equipment and technology will make it possible for us to produce reliable and quality products that will be in constant market demand. We hope for further cooperation with Spire in the process of our program realization.”
The semi-automated line will be designed to facilitate future expansion, and will consist of Spire’s PV module manufacturing equipment integrated into a system of active and passive conveyors.
Ryazan presently produces approximately 1MW of mono-crystalline solar cells and modules.
