Mondragon Assembly, with its extensive experience in manufacturing and automation of assembly lines for the solar energy sector, has supplied and commissioned a 100 MW photovoltaic module production front line in Cairo, Egypt. The project was launched in the last quarter of 2019.
This turnkey project will provide the company with a large production capacity for various solar modules, from bifacial half-cut glass-glass modules to standard high efficiency Mono PERC panels. Teriak Industrial Group aims to play a key role in Africa in the production of clean energy, with a power capacity of 100 MW per year.
Mondragon Assembly and its presence in MENA
Haythem Zhioua, International Sales Manager for the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa) has stated that “this is not our first project in Egypt, as we previously carried out the development of a 50 MW PV modules assembly line to Arab International Optronics.”
Similarly, Zhioua noted that “one of our main objectives at Mondragon Assembly is to stay alongside our clients and partners, offering them direct support when they need it most. For this reason, we have a local technical team composed of highly trained project managers and technicians who provide support across the MENA region.”
Thanks to its 40 years in business, Mondragon Assembly has become a leading company in the solar energy sector, supplying turnkey production lines for the manufacture of photovoltaic modules worldwide.
Igor Herrarte, International Sales Manager for the EMEA region, notes that “Mondragon Assembly has been supplying innovative solutions to the solar sector with high technological content for more than 20 years, and it should continue in this line for decades to come. We are a long-term-oriented company, and our goal is not limited to selling equipment and lines, but rather to collaborate with our clients in ensuring the serial manufacture of PV solar modules with the highest possible quality. We believe that service is our greatest added value. This line for Teriak Industrial Group is the eighth line that we installed in the MENA region.”
Herrarte also stressed that “we have a complete knowledge transfer programme that is adaptable to the needs of our clients, including the design and certification of modules, raw materials, training, and maintenance programmes, among others.”
Mondragon Assembly has become a benchmark company in the solar energy sector by supplying turnkey production lines for the manufacture of photovoltaic modules worldwide.
