CENTROSOLAR Group AG, a Munich, Germany-based supplier of photovoltaic roof systems and solar glass, has commissioned a first anti-reflective (AR) coating line in Huzhou, China, at a partner company that has been operating a glass melting furnace there on behalf of Centrosolar Glas GmbH & Co.

KG since 2009.

Centrosolar Glas currently exports AR glass grades from its production plant in Fürth, Germany, to destinations ranging from the United States to the Far East. However, the company reports that in view of the high shipping costs it has not yet been possible to tap market potential in Asia adequately.

The new production line has an annual capacity of 1.8 million square meters and will enable CENTROSOLAR to supply this product to customers in the Far East with immediate effect. There are no plans for imports into Europe, which will continue to be supplied by the Fürth plant.

“The Asian market has become a very interesting prospect for our solar glass business,” says management board chairman Dr. Alexander Kirsch. “But in the long run it simply doesn’t make sense to ship coated panes of glass across the oceans. We are now much closer to our Asian customers. The partnership with a well-known, reliable partner for raw-glass production offers further advantages in terms of quality and costs.”
