Kyocera Corp. recently announced the construction of a new solar module manufacturing plant in Tianjin City, China, to expand production capacity at Kyocera (Tianjin) Solar Energy Co., Ltd. Construction of the new plant is timed to align the production capacity of solar modules with the increase in production of solar cells. Kyocera is set to expand to 650 MW by March 2012. Manufacturing modules mainly for the Asian market, the target production capacity of Kyocera Tianjin Solar will be bolstered to the eventual goal of 240 MW from 2011, an increase to four times the current capacity of 60 MW.

Construction of the new manufacturing plant will begin in April, with completion scheduled for the spring of 2010. Upon completion of the new plant, all Kyocera Tianjin Solar manufacturing operations will subsequently be transferred to the new facility. The groundbreaking ceremony for the scheduled construction of the new plant was held February 18 on the site adjacent to the current facility.
