Japanese manufacturing company Kyocera Corporation will build a new large-scale solar cell manufacturing facility in Yasu City, Japan.
Construction is expected to commence in early 2009 and be completed by the end of the year, with production anticipated to begin in the spring of 2010, the company said. Along with its existing Yohkaichi plant, Kyocera will produce up to 650 MW of power by March 2012.
Tatsumi Maeda, senior managing executive officer of Kyocera Corporation and general manager of its Corporate Solar Energy Group, said, ‘Kyocera’s 33 years of experience in developing solar energy technologies has allowed us to create high-quality products with industry-leading efficiency and reliability.
‘Kyocera will build on these strengths to further expand its solar business,’ he added.
Kyocera has established local production and supply networks for solar modules in Japan, Europe, North America and China.
