San-Du Solar Energy, a recently established Malaysia-based company, plans to construct a 25 MW solar module manufacturing facility in Malaysia using equipment and services from Switzerland-based 3S Group.
The companies have signed a contract for a turnkey package for the first phase of production. San-Du Solar Energy and 3S note that they have agreed on an aggressive schedule to ramp up the module line in early 2010 in order to cope with increasing customer demand for building-integrated PV (BIPV) and standard modules in local markets.
‘This will be the first crystalline module production line of this size in Malaysia, producing BIPV modules, as well as standard modules,’ says Michael Raber, general manager for Asia Pacific at 3S.
