Spire Corp., a supplier of photovoltaic manufacturing equipment and solar electric systems, has signed a $2.7 million contract with ATmicro Solar to provide a SPI-LINE turnkey photovoltaic (PV) module production line. The module assembly line will be integrated to ATmicro's solar electric module manufacturing facility in Ergates, Cyprus. The production line is scheduled to operate by the end of this year.

Spire's PV module assembly equipment and process technology is expected to enable ATmicro to manufacture photovoltaic modules from solar cells at the rate of 10MW per year. These modules will be used for PV systems for electrification projects in Cyprus and throughout the eastern Mediterranean region.

"The establishment of PV manufacturing capacity in Cyprus is part of the global trend towards distributed local manufacturing of photovoltaic modules. Our experience has shown that local assembly of modules stimulates local demand for PV products, causing markets to grow faster," said Roger G. Little, Spire's President and CEO.
