64 MW PV panel plant to be established in Toronto, Canada


Through a CAD$10 million investment, the company has purchased a 64 megawatt (MW), semi-automated turnkey module manufacturing line from Rimas in the Netherlands. It is said to be adequately equipped, in order to meet the demands of the North American market, thus bringing European solar manufacturing knowledge to Canada.

Ninety people are expected to be employed, and further expansion is in the pipeline, although Eclipsall declined to issue any specific details.

Mark Verstraten, CEO of Rimas commented: "Once again it shows that Rimas is a fast growing partner in the turnkey module line market. And we will continue our quest for market share in lean manufacturing."
