Solarnova produces conventional PV modules as well as BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaic). Now the company has acquired a new stringer built by Teamtechnik. The Stringer is meant to increase the number of modules produced while maintaining the company’s quality standards.

The solarnova Deutschland GmbH sees itself at the forefront of technological advances. To meet this self-set standard the company has acquired a new Stringer form Teamtechnik this March. Both companies have maintained a strong business relationship for the last 20 years. The new Stringer is expected to increase the manufacturing capacity of conventional modules up to 65 MW per year. The manufacturing capacity of BIPV modules is expected to be raise up to 20 MW per year.

With the new acquisition solarnova wants to strengthen its international position. The company relies on the high quality standards. One potential client is the Grupo Desmex, with more than 5.000 consolidated projects, such as solar parks, BIPV projects (Building Integrated Photovoltaic), as well as multiple commercial and residential projects under its belt.
