Post date: 03/07/2019 - 19:38
European renewable energy company Recom Solar is investing in a new PV module manufacturing facility in Belarus to increase its European production capacity. The facility, at a distance of 2 km from the Minsk international airport, is currently at its late phase of construction and will become fully operational end of October 2019 with 300 MW annual capacity. The project is a joint venture with local partners.
According to the company, the plant will mainly produce high efficiency bi-facial, half-cut PV modules. »Its strategic importance will be that it will serve mainly Europe, but also markets in the US and Asia,« says Recom founder and CEO Hamlet Tunyan.
In 2017, Recom acquired the PV module manufacturing facility Sillia in Lannion, Brittany, France (currently Recom-Sillia) and has decided in 2019 to move its headquarters to Lannion. In September 2018, the company announced further expansion of its production capacity by adding 1 GW in Europe »within the next 8 months«.
