Suntech to construct manufacturing facility in the US


Suntech’s Monocrystalline Standard Solar Modules

Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd., a China-based manufacturer of crystalline silicon photovoltaic (PV) modules, announced plans to start manufacturing solar energy products in the United States, and is currently scouting possible locations for a production and distribution facility.

According to Dr. Zhengrong Shi, the growth in the utility demand for the large-scale solar systems, the federal government’s stimulus projects, and several states’ incentives programs for solar energy systems all affected the company’s decision to put up a manufacturing facility in the US.

The manufacturing team of Suntech created a pilot line through its KSL-Kuttler subsidiary, which designs and supplies automation equipment for the printed circuit-board industry. This pilot line will develop low-cost, proprietary processes that can be replicated abroad, including in the US. Constructing manufacturing facilities near its customers will help Suntech reduce logistics issues and costs, and will also cut down the carbon emissions because of the transportation of the modules and the increasing on-time delivery capabilities.

Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. is the world’s leading manufacturer of crystalline silicon modules. Suntech plans to develop more than 10 megawatts of solar projects in the United States. Suntech is headquartered in Jiangsu Province, China, with regional offices in Europe, the United States, and Asia.
