La Veneciana de Saint-Gobain is boosting its presence in the solar mirrors market through a plant extension in Covilis, Portugal, enabling the company to supply the Iberian Peninsula's solar power market with parabolic cylindrical mirrors.

The project will expand the existing facility, which produces SGG ALBARINO patterned glass for photovoltaic panels, by 12,000 square meters. The company says the Covilis site will become the largest parabolic cylindrical mirrors plant in the world, with annual production capacity corresponding to the supply of mirrors for 250 MW of solar fields.
