Singapore -- it's the country where Norway's Renewable Energy Corporation ASA (REC) has decided to build its new integrated solar manufacturing facility. Fully developed, the manufacturing complex will incorporate wafer, cell and module production facilities -- and have a production capacity of up to 1.5 gigawatts (GW).

"Singapore had articulated an exciting vision and plan to develop the solar industry as a key growth area for its economy. We are very happy to have been given the opportunity to build this solar industry complex in Singapore." -- Erik Thorsen, President & CEO, REC
