REC is among the world's leading integrated solar energy companies.
The production facility in Tuas, Singapore was ramped up during 2010, and the site is now fully operational. The facility leverages the technology from the Norwegian production facilities for multicrystalline wafer and cell production. The scale of the Singapore facility represents a step change in REC production capabilities, increasing wafer production by approximately 40 percent, and cell and module capacity by almost 400 percent.
The new facility will allow REC to increasingly offer products that will compete with traditional, grid-based electricity. So far, about 1,500 employees have been employed by REC at the Tuas plants. The organization has demonstrated strong performance, targeting a competitive position in the industry by the end of 2011.
Wafer capacity is estimated at 740 MW.
Cell capacity is estimated at 550 MW.
The module capacity is estimated at 590 MW.
