US-based PV module manufacturer, Suniva, is to build its second production plant in Saginaw Township, Michigan, providing an additional 200MW of annual nameplate capacity.
 
The company said that construction of the pant would begin in August, with production expected to start of in the fourth quarter of 2014. When fully-ramped the plant is expected to create around 350 jobs, Suniva said. 
 
JoAnn Crary, the president of local economic development body, Saginaw Future said: “Early on, Suniva identified the Great Lakes Bay Region as a strategic location for its continued expansion due to our highly-skilled workforce. To attract such an industry leader is a strong testament to the quality of our people, and the commitment of our region and Michigan to the growth and expansion of our solar industry cluster.”
 
Suniva noted that it currently produced its Optimus monocrystalline module line with power ratings up to 280W (60-cell format) and 330W (72-cell format) at its Norcross, Georgia plant.
