Solar Frontier restarted Miyazaki No.2 plant to meet the growing demand for CIS thin-film modules
Solar Frontier restarted its Miyazaki No.2 Plant.
The 60 MW annual capacity plant at Kiyotakecho in Miyazaki, Japan, had been temporarily suspended since the end of 2012 and Solar Frontier has since been evaluating the feasibility of manufacturing new products. In July, the plant will restart the manufacturing of conventional thin-film CIS modules for residential use while final arrangements are being made to begin commercial production of a new, innovative type of module, which has been developed at Solar Frontier’s Atsugi Research Center. Based on a feasibility evaluation, production of the new module will start in the second half of this year.
