British Columbia, Canida [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Day4 Energy Inc. has announced the successful completion of the first phase of its manufacturing expansion. The new Phase I production equipment installed in the company’s Burnaby production facilities adds 35 megawatts (MW) of production capacity to its current solar photovoltaic module production line and increases total current annual production capacity to 47 MW.
The company’s Phase II expansion, which calls for an additional 50 MW of production capacity, is now well underway driven by continued international partner and customer demand for Day4 Energy’s advanced solar products, the company said.
The new production line features the latest generation of Day4 Energy’s production equipment, including a full automation of the company’s manufacturing process for the Day4 Electrode. The patented Day4 Electrode is the company’s next generation platform for PV module manufacturing and is now scaled for large volume roll-out.
“We had two core objectives for Phase I: expanding production to meet demand and completion of the industrial scale-up of our proprietary manufacturing process. I am proud to report that we have successfully achieved both objectives,” said George Rubin, president of Day4 Energy.
