Grossroehrsdorf – July 11, 2008. Sunfilm AG celebrated the “Cornerstone Ceremony” to mark the start of construction for its second production facility.

The new production building will be located right next to Sunfilm’s first one, which was completed just a few months ago.

The new 20.000 m² plant will be ready by spring 2009. Pre-production is scheduled for mid 2009 whereas commercial production will start later that year. Having achieved full capacity in 2010, both plants together will be able to produce annually more than 120 MWp of thin film silicon photovoltaic modules.

Three German general contractors will be responsible for the completion of this facility: Eurovia VBU GmbH, Goldbeck Ost GmbH and Wisag Service Holding GmbH & Co. KG.

The two Sunfilm plants will set a benchmark for high efficiency thin film silicon modules in an ultra-large format of up to 5.7m².

The second production line will create up to 200 new workplaces for a wide variety of skill levels including ten more apprenticeship positions.

As part of the Cornerstone Ceremony, Strasse E, which is the current address of Sunfilm was renamed to “Sunfilmstraße”.
