Spire Corp., a global solar company providing turnkey solar factories and capital equipment to manufacture photovoltaic modules and cells worldwide, has received a contract from Bogoroditsk Plant of Techno-Chemical Products (BTCP) to provide a photovoltaic module assembly line for the company's operations in Russia.
BTCP is an international chemical company located in the Tula region of Russia. This project will be the company's first solar module manufacturing facility for both the standard module and building integrated photovoltaic markets.
Spire says it will provide BTCP with a semi-automated crystalline silicon module manufacturing line capable of producing up to 12 megawatts of solar modules per year. It will integrate Spire's key interconnect, lamination and testing machines, along with intermediate tooling stations.
Spire will supply the process technology and training to operate the factory, as well as assistance in qualifying the factory's modules to international standards and certification. The line is designed to be easily expandable at a later date.
