The first production line is already in operation and extends over 8,000m2 of the 24,000m2 production hall. The new plant is more automated than the 400 MW factory that Heckert Solar operates at its headquarters in Chemnitz, eastern Germany.

In the future, production will be carried out in four shifts in Thuringia. After the ramp-up of the new production facility, Heckert Solar will have an annual production capacity of 800 MW and employ 275 people.
