China’s Trina Solar is to build a manufacturing facility in Thailand with 500MW of module and 700MW of cell production capacity.

New subsidiary Trina Solar Science & Technology (Thailand) Ltd will tackle the work and total investment in the facility at Rayong is estimated at $160m. Production is expected to start in late 2015 or early 2016.

Trina Solar president of module business Zhiguo Zhu said: "Thailand is an ideal location for us to build a new manufacturing base due to its proximity to key emerging markets in the Asia Pacific region as well as its favourable investment environment in terms of land acquisition and labour costs.”
