Spire to Provide Solar PV Module Production Line to Taiwan

Spire Corporation entered into a contract with Prosperity Solar Power, Inc. of Taipei City, Taiwan, to provide Spire’s 10 megawatt (MW) turnkey photovoltaic (PV) module manufacturing production line. This will be the first large photovoltaic module production line established in Taiwan.

The production line includes equipment for solar cell testing, stringing and lay-up, lamination, framing, and module testing. Spire will also provide process training as well as a conceptual plant layout design. “Prosperity Solar Power is establishing a ten megawatt module production line in Q1 of 2007,” said Dennis Ting, Chairman of Prosperity Solar Power. “Prosperity Solar Power and its associated companies seek to become one of the key players in photovoltaic module production.” Prosperity Solar Power selected Spire based on Spire’s experience in developing the processes and building the equipment needed for efficient manufacture of high quality, PV modules, as well as Spire’s training and service support. “The demand for photovoltaics continues to expand in Taiwan and elsewhere around the world,” said Roger G. Little, CEO and Chairman of Spire Corporation, “and Spire offers the experience and products to help companies, such as Prosperity Solar Power, take advantage of this growing market opportunity.”
