Just now, another photovoltaic company announced the closure of its factory!

Time: January 23, 2024

It is reported that on January 17, Meyer Burger, a Swiss-based photovoltaic module manufacturer, announced that it would close its solar module production base in Germany and said it would make a final decision by the end of February.

It is understood that the module factory that Meyer Burger closed this time is the largest solar panels factory in Europe. The closure of the plant is a major blow to the photovoltaic manufacturing industry in Germany and Europe.

Meyer Burger said in a statement, "Due to the deteriorating European market environment, it is currently unsustainable to continue full-scale European solar manufacturing. Unfortunately, part of the plan will begin to close in Frei, Germany, as early as April 2024." Berg has one of the largest operating solar module production sites in Europe, affecting around 500 people.”

Meyer Burger said its cell production site at its Thalheim plant in Germany will continue to produce solar cells to support its U.S. module production operations.

Gunter Erfurt, CEO of Meyer Burger, said: "The expansion of our U.S. operations is currently proceeding as planned, with start-up at our solar module production site in Goodyear, Arizona expected in the second quarter of 2024."

Previously, Meyer Burger had planned to add approximately 3GW of production capacity in Germany by the end of 2024, including Freiberg's 1.4GW soalr panels production capacity.

In addition, on July 18, 2023, Meyer Burger also announced that it will build a 3.5GW factory in Spain
