Suniva Inc., a manufacturer of monocrystalline silicon solar cells, has began production of solar cells on its new 32 MWp line in Norcross, Ga. The company plans to install a second production line next year with twice the manufacturing capacity of its first, bringing total production capacity of the Norcross facility to 96 MWp by the middle of 2009.
The newly completed 32 MW line produces Suniva's ARTisun solar cells, which are then delivered to module manufacturers to be assembled into some of the industry's most efficient solar modules, the company says.
Suniva will also continue its partnership with centrotherm photovoltaics AG to design and integrate a second, larger production line at the Norcross facility.
