Nov. 21, 2013 - Spire Corporation announced today it has installed Spire's turn-key module manufacturing line in Eastern Europe. The Spire module line, the first of its kind in this region, will be used to produce PV modules for the local regional market.
It is expected the first production modules will be delivered by year end. Further, Spire is providing on-going technical support for the training and the production ramp up of the line. The installed capacity is expected to support large installations going forward in 2014 and beyond.
"We are very excited about installing this inaugural line into this region. There is a great deal of demand for solar in this region and Spire is pleased to be working with a local partner on their entry into the solar market. We expect this region to continue growing and anticipate that this is the first of many regional opportunities for Spire, which addresses the desires for local manufacturing and content requirements," said Roger G. Little, Chairman & CEO.
