Inauguration of AUO SunPower in Malaysia


The AUO SunPower facility is located in Melaka, the solar valley of Malaysia, south of the capital Kuala Lumpur. The two-building facility will be 108,000 square meters and will house 28 solar cell production lines when fully online. The facility has been in production since October this year. AUO SunPower has already produced approximately five megawatts with up to 22.5 percent conversion efficiencies. Further features that will be included are the solar covered parking space that will generate 2.6 MWs of power annually and the rooftop installation on all facilities on site to generate a total of more than ten megawatts of power annually.

"We are pleased to dedicate this facility and celebrate the success of the AUO SunPower joint venture," said K.Y. Lee, Chairman of AUO. He added: "The AUO SunPower Fab is already in production, benefiting from our leading manufacturing technology, and efficiently-run global operations and management."

The facility's development is supported by the Malaysian government and the ceremony was also graced by the Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib.
