Italian PV manufacturer Sunerg Solar is to open a second production line at its factory in the region of Umbria.
The company said that despite problems in the international PV industry, it was sufficiently confident of its own product to raise its annual production capacity to 100MW.
The new line has a capacity of 70MW and is fitted out with equipment from German providers Teamtechnik, Reis Robotics and NPC-Meier.
Sunerg will produce its multicrystalline XP 60/156-230 module on the line.
Lauri Luciano, president of Sunerg Solar, said the quality of the company’s product meant greater “security for the customer”.
