SANYO North America Corp. is constructing a new plant for the manufacture of solar ingots and wafers in the Renewable Energy and Technology Park of Salem, in Salem, Ore.

The plant is planned to begin operations in October 2009 and be at full operation by April 2010, with a production capacity of approximately 70 MW – bringing the total for ingot and wafer production capacity in America to approximately 100 MW.

SANYO says it is augmenting its facilities with the necessary equipment and constructing new facilities for future growth in response to market demand, moving forward to reach an annual production capacity of at least 600 MW by fiscal year 2010.

To increase ingot and wafer production, the second plant in the U.S. will be constructed and organized into a new company, SANYO Solar of Oregon LLC.
