The facility, at a distance of 2 km from Minsk International Airport, is currently in its final phase of construction and will become fully operational at the end of October 2019, then producing an annual capacity 300MW. The project is a joint venture with local partners.

The plant will mainly produce high efficiency bi-facial, half-cut PV modules. “This facility’s output will be of top European quality using the latest technology in module production,” says RECOM CEO Hamlet Tunyan. “Its strategic importance will be that it will serve mainly Europe, but also markets in the US and Asia.”

The new factory in Minsk is also expected to open new opportunities for solar projects in Belarus. “We believe this will also contribute to spreading a culture of renewable energy in Belarus, diversify their energy mix and, of course, create jobs in the economy” Mr Tunyan concludes. (mfo)
