- The creditors' meeting of Solarworld Industries GmbH approved the sale of the buildings at Solarworld's former production site in Freiberg (Saxony). The purchase price amounts to EUR 12 million and includes buildings with a total area of 33,000 square meters, patents and trademark rights.
- At the same time, the rental agreement for the buildings of the former solar cell manufacturer Sovello with areas of 27,000 square meters in Bitterfeld-Wolfen (Saxony-Anhalt) was definitely signed.
- Two important milestones have thus been reached to ensure the start of production in the first half of 2021 with 400 MW solar cells and 400 MW solar modules as well as further growth at the locations.
In addition, the lease agreement for the buildings in Freiberg takes effect immediately. From 2021, the highly efficient cells will be processed into SmartWire modules here.
