New SANYO factory breaks ground in Salem, Oregon

16 October 2008 | By Syanne Olson

SANYO Electric Co., Ltd. broke ground this week on its new Renewable Energy and Technology Park factory in Salem, Oregon. The factory is scheduled to begin operating in October 2009 with the fabrication of solar ingots and wafers used in the production of solar photovoltaic cells.

“Today we take an important step to accomplish our plan for an annual production capacity of greater than 600MW by FY 2010 as we break ground for the new factory,” said Kazuhiko Suruta, Executive Vice President of SANYO and Head of Solar Business.

The groundbreaking in Oregon comes on the heels of the company announcing yesterday that it aims to more than double its overall output to 600MW by 2010, at its site in Monterrey, Mexico. SANYO hopes to meet the growing demand in America, Europe and Japan for solar power by expanding production and reaching a new global annual capacity of more than 600MW by FY 2010.
