The plant, in the town of Kulim, is producing Panasonic’s HIT
monocrystalline PV modules in anticipation of “growing demand,” the Osaka-based company said in a statement.
The factory in Malaysia opened in December and employs about 1,500 people.
May, Panasonic announced plans to stop making wafers at a plant in the US state of Oregon, in favour of shifting production to the Southeast Asian country.
July, it revealed plans to close a PV module plant in Hungary from September, as part of efforts to consolidate production at its factories
in Japan and Malaysia.
The company maintains a total PV module production capacity of about 900MW per year.
