Kyocera expands in Czech Republic and China


Kyocera recently started construction of its second solar module assembly plant in the Czech Republic. The new facility's completion is scheduled for fall this year and will have an annual capacity of 360 megawatts (MW), combining with the existing Czech plant for a total of 560MW per year — the largest solar module assembly site in the Kyocera Group.

The new plant will be built near the company's existing Czech plant that has been supplying solar modules to Europe. The existing plant has already supplied Kyocera's modules for various large-scale projects, including a total of 53.1MW for three solar power plants in Spain.

Operations from the existing Tianjin plant in China will be gradually transferred to the new, expanded plant by spring this year. Once the facility is fully operational, it will have an annual production capacity of 360MW — approximately 3.5 times more than the site's current capacity.
