Taiwan-based Auria Solar has begun production of thin-film silicon solar modules using micromorph technology from Oerlikon Solar. Full-volume production will commence in the first quarter of 2009, with yearly output capacity exceeding 60 MW. Auria Solar says its long-term goal is to reach 500 MW annually by 2012.
‘Auria Solar starting production represents another milestone in Oerlikon Solar's mission to make solar power economically viable as an alternative, sustainable energy solution,’ says Jeannine Sargent, CEO of Oerlikon Solar.
