Hyundai Heavy Building Large CIGS Solar Cell Plant


Hyundai Heavy plans to build what the company says is South Korea's largest manufacturing plant for building copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film solar cells.

The company signed an agreement with France-based Saint-Gobain and Chungcheongbuk-do to build a 400 MW CIGS solar cell plant in the Ochang Foreign Investment Zone, Chungcheongbuk-do, by 2015. Construction is scheduled to start from March 2011.

Upon completion, the 231,000 square-meter plant will have four solar cell manufacturing buildings with an annual production capacity of 100 MW each and one administrative building.
