Kyocera Begins Production At New Japanese Solar Cell Plant


Kyocera Corp. says it will begin full-scale production at its new Yasu solar cell manufacturing facility in Yasu City, Shiga Prefecture, Japan. The new plant, which was completed in March of this year and has already finished production line testing, is the largest of the company's domestic manufacturing facilities and will be producing the company's multicrystalline silicon solar cells.

The new Yasu Plant employs an enhanced manufacturing line, and will produce solar cells with a 16.9% energy conversion efficiency, Kyocera says. In tandem with the company's existing Shiga Yohkaichi Plant in Japan, the new plant will contribute to meeting Kyocera's annual production target of 1GW of solar cells by March 2013.
