The annual capacity of the line has yet to be reveealed.

Kenmec, who will supply the automation equipment for the production lines, will tap other international suppliers for such key equipment as PECVD systems and others, based on clients’ individual requirements. The report claimed that Kenmec’s turnkey production line would produce modules capable of 7-8% conversion rates.
