Bosch opens second PV module line in France


Six months after opening its new crystalline photovoltaic module manufacturing plant in Vénissieux, near Lyon, Germany-based Bosch has added a second production line.

A spokesperson tells pv magazine that at full utilization, 2,000 modules will be produced daily, or 600,000 annually. Originally, the company was expecting to ramp up to 150 MW in July.

They added that the new lines can be used flexibly, to produce five different types of mono-crystalline and multi-crystalline modules. 200 workers are employed at the facility.
