and microcrystalline thin-film solar module manufacturing start-up
Sencera International Corporation has announced plans to build a 38MW
module plant in Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S. Sencera will invest
$36.8 million and plans to use its proprietary ‘Viper’ plasma-enhanced
chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) technology to reach the 38MW capacity
by 2011, creating 65 jobs in the process.
“We considered several different states and foreign countries. We’re glad we can remain in Charlotte. The Charlotte Chamber was extremely helpful in shepherding us through this process,” said Britt Weaver, COO of Sencera, “We’re grateful that our state and local public officials recognize the potential of both our company and what the solar industry brings to the city of Charlotte and North Carolina.”
Sencera will move its current headquarters and R&D operations to the new facility.
