Our story begins on the day Domenico Sartore, founder of the Italian company Ecoprogetti, realized there was a need to change from being a PV module manufacturer, to drive the evolution of the industry by moving into the production of machines and automation. This was at a time when the solar PV markets in Europe were gaining momentum and production processes needed to transform from completely manual to a more automated production of the various steps in the value chain, from polysilicon, ingots and wafers to cells and eventually modules.
With the industry’s rapid international expansion family-owned Ecoprogetti took an important strategic decision on how to set the focus on growth and at the same time retain the medium-size character of the company that had made it so successful up until then. From now on, Ecoprogetti would specialize in the production of automated machines and the development of construction processes for high quality PV solar modules, a strategic decision that has made Ecoprogetti the most specialized company in this specific sector today.
While some markets have scaled up rapidly with huge volume production lines, other markets have required smaller sized lines and more flexible production solutions, always focusing on production efficiency (minutes module/man).
Ecoprogetti took its strategic position in this market environment and created unique, complete turnkey solutions of great efficiency even with small sized production lines.
The company has been driving the development of the PV industry, starting from the old 4” 600µm thick round cells through the whole evolution of solar products arriving at today’s innovation level to create production solutions for PERC, Bifacial, 12BB wire, glass glass and so on. Ecoprogetti continues to drive uncompromised and advanced research, and to always provide the most competitive and efficient turnkey production solutions from 10 MW to 1 GW.
In continuation of the vision and the business ethics of the company’s founder, today’s CEO of Ecoprogetti, Ms. Laura Sartore and her team are shaping the success of the company going forward. In only a short period of time, a remarkable number of new clients in new geographies started their photovoltaic production business, successfully competing in their markets. Ecoprogetti today is providing not only efficient and reliable production technology at competitive costs, but also ensures that their customers continuously benefit from Ecoprogetti’s ongoing research and development of new innovative solutions, starting from new raw materials to new management systems and process flows. “We make sure, Ecoprogetti customers are always getting the best solution needed for a sustainable and successful operation. Our customer’s success is our success”, says Laura Sartore.
