Solar Frontier expands module production capacity


Japan's much-publicised solar boom has prompted domestic module manufacturer Solar Frontier to re-open its 60 MW production facility in Miyazaki.

Demand for Solar Frontier's thin film modules is such that the company, which claims to be the sole ‘made in Japan' module manufacturer is re-opening its Miyazaki No.2 plant this month.

Solar Frontier closed down the factory at the end of last year to concentrate production in its state-of-the-art Kunitomi plant but with the world's most generous FIT rates driving demand to new levels, the company will open production from both facilities.

A company press release announcing the plans also stated a new, ‘innovative' module, developed at Solar Frontier's Atsugi Research Center, will be manufactured at Miyazaki, with production to begin in the second half of the year.
