First Solar, Inc. officially broke ground on its new Vietnam photovoltaic production facility earlier this week. When complete, the new facility will produce more than 250 megawatts of thin-film photovoltaics annually. The Vietnam facility will help First Solar meet its goal of expanding production capacity from 1.4 gigawatts at the end of 2011 to 2.9 GWs at the end of 2012.
The manufacturing plant being built at Dong Nam Industrial Park near Ho Chi Minh City is slated for completion by the second half of 2012, according to First Solar. During the construction phase, the $300 million facility will employ up to 2,000 people and after completion will employ 600.
“The Vietnam manufacturing plant will be part of First Solar's global manufacturing network that includes other factories in the United States, Germany and Malaysia and serves customers world-wide,” said First Solar spokesperson Alan Bernheimer.
