Spanish PV manufacturer Yohkon Energía files for voluntary bankruptcy

Bankruptcy proceedings for the company will be headed by Judge Javier Escarda de la Justicia, according to an announcement published in the Official Gazette of the Commercial Registry (BORME), the official publication of companies in Spain today, October 10.

According to Spain’s Alimarket Energía news service, which was quoting unnamed labor union sources, a downsizing plan for 30 employees has been prepared.

Yohkon Energía, established with private capital in 2006, focuses on three business segments: the manufacture of crystalline and GIGS thin film photovoltaic modules; the development of bespoke BIPV solutions; and photovoltaic solutions for off-grid systems. It has an annual production capacity of 24 MW.

The company was further responsible for the development of half a dozen large solar plants on the Iberian peninsula, including: 2 MW La Pedraja in Valladolid; 1 MW Arico on the Canary Islands; 0.5 MW Sampa in Porto (Portugal); and 0.8 MW Caparroso in Navarra.
