KYOCERA to Start Production at New Solar Cell Plant

Kyocera Corp. has announced that 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 and has already finished production line testing, is the largest of Kyocera’s domestic manufacturing facilities, and will be producing the company’s multicrystalline silicon solar cells.

The new plant, which uses an enhanced manufacturing line, will produce solar cells with a 16.9% energy conversion efficiency-one of the world’s highest for mass-produced multicrystalline cells. In tandem with the company’s existing Shiga Yohkaichi (Japan) plant, the new plant will contribute to meeting Kyocera’s annual production target of 1 GW of solar cells by March 2013.
