Meyer Burger reduces module production due to covid pandemic

Swiss-based Meyer Burger Technology Ltd is reducing module production in the German facility in Freiberg (Saxony). The reason is the »dynamic development of the Corona pandemic in Germany with strongly increasing infection figures« and »above-average absences due to illness and officially ordered quarantine« among Meyer Burger's workforce. The company will temporarily operate only one of two production lines and will adjust production schedules for its solar modules accordingly until probably the end of January 2022.
Due to the work required in parallel with production operations for the planned expansion of the existing production line from 0.4 to 1 gigawatt, »the production output at the Freiberg site was and will be additionally temporarily restricted.«
The production restrictions have a negative impact on sales in 2021. The previous targets for 2023 remained in place. The further announced capacity expansion at the Freiberg, Thalheim (Bitterfeld-Wolfen) and US sites was not affected by the current Corona situation.
