Trumantech completed its $150 million solar panel manufacturing facility in South China’s Guangdong province in February this year but have already planned to expand.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
The Factory currently has a capacity of producing half a giggawat of highly efficient solar panels a year but as predicted this falls well short of where they need to be in terms of output.
Peter Yeung Trumantech’s Owner & CEO said, “As soon as we started construction of the new factory we already knew we were going to have to expand due to our ever increasing order book and China’s ambitious plans for greenhouse emission reductions”.
Yeung went on to say “We are a forward thinking company and are prepared to invest heavily into the future, we had originally planned to double capacity to one giggawat but have increased that to one and a half giggawat’s which equates to around 1,500 solar panels a day, luckily we had the foresight to buy sufficient land to allow us to expand at the current location and will be able to carry out the further expansion without any disruption to current production”.
Brad Elbridge - Trumantech’s Senior Vice President of Operations said, “Our plans are seen as ambitious, maybe overly so but we have taken every step to ensure that the planned added capacity will be taken up by our existing client base”.
Trumantech will start the planned expansion in December 2018 with completion expected in Q1 of 2020.
Trumantech is a clean energy provider that believes that there is a world where companies like them, investors and the environment can profit and help make the world’s pollution issues a thing of the past. They believe we all have to choose between being part of the energy policy problem, or its solution. Reducing our dependency on fossil fuels is no longer a wish, but a necessity, and not only in order to achieve the ambitious climate protection that has already been targeted.
