Sanyo Electric Co. Ltd has completed construction of the Shiga plant at its Shiga facilities (Ohtsu City, Shiga Prefecture), which will assemble HIT solar cell modules as part of the company's continuing plans to expand and develop its solar business.

The Shiga plant will have an initial production capacity of 40MW, and Sanyo will consider expanding production based upon further review of market trends and demand.

Sanyo currently produces HIT solar cells at two factories, at the Nishikinohama factory (Kaizuka City, Osaka) and Shimane Sanyo Electric Co (Unnan City, Shimane Prefecture). The modules, or panels, are then assembled at two domestic facilities (Nishikinohama factory and the Tokyo Plant) and two overseas facilities (Hungary and Monterrey (Mexico) factories). With the new operation at the Shiga plant, it will be one of the major bases for module production.
