The SPEC team, which is being supported by solar experts from 3S Modultec, will be working on realizing the factory.
The Swiss Meyer Burger Technology Group is embarking on its international expansion with the sale of the first integrated production line to Africa via this cooperation with SPEC in Dakar.
The production line is a combination of automated and semi-automatic production stages with optimum integration of manual work according to 3S. The line will be 15 megawatts and this can be further expanded to 25MW. SPEC also receives transfer of skills, a comprehensive training package, certification of the produced panels and a service and maintenance contract.
From June this year, SPEC will be producing solar panels that will be certified by TÜV Rheinland for the African markets.
Experts from 3S Modultec will be on site to support SPEC in the planning, ramp-up, production launch and certification phases. The production concept has been specifically matched to local conditions and customer requirements in Africa.
