WACKER SCHOTT Solar GmbH, a joint venture of Wacker Chemie AG and SCHOTT Solar GmbH, has said that its new silicon solar wafer plant in Jena, Germany is expected to reach 50MW in capacity by fall 2008. The new facility took six months to build at a cost of €50 million.

The two-story building has 7,560m2 of floorspace for the manufacturing equipment – and it has one of the Thuringia region’s largest photovoltaic arrays installed on its roof. SCHOTT Solar manufactured and delivered the solar modules for this 82kW array, which is operated by PV Meins KG (a partnership that includes many WACKER SCHOTT Solar employees).
