Spire Delivers Module Manufacturing Line to Sova

Spire Corporation has delivered a PV module assembly line to Sova Power Limited located in Durgapur, West Bengal, India. Spire has provided Sova with a semi-automated crystalline silicon module manufacturing line capable of producing up to 12 megawatts of solar modules per year.

It will integrate Spire’s key interconnect, lamination and testing machines, along with intermediate tooling stations. Spire will supply the process technology and training to operate the factory, as well as assistance in qualifying the factory’s modules to international standards and certification. The line is designed to be easily expandable at a later date.

“The solar market is expanding rapidly in India and Spire offers the quickest, most efficient path to joining the industry. We are confident that Spire’s industry expertise and superior manufacturing equipment position us for success as we integrate solar manufacturing into our existing business,” said Sajal Das, CEO of Sova Power Limited.
