Suntech Breaks Ground On 300 MW Solar PV Cell Production Facility


Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. has broken ground on a new PV cell production facility in China's Jiangsu province. Suntech intends the facility to have a production capacity of 300 MW by the end of 2009.

Located in Yangzhou, the cell production facility is close to Suntech's strategic silicon supply partner, Shunda Holdings Co. Ltd., and within two hours of Suntech's Wuxi headquarters.

‘The co-location with Shunda's polysilicon plant and wafering facilities will enable a virtual integration of the solar value chain, from polysilicon to solar panel, supporting our move to provide cost-effective solar solutions,’ says Dr. Zhengrong Shi, chairman and CEO of Suntech.
