“We are pleased to have partnered with Gray for providing timely delivery of our manufacturing facility,” said Mr. Byeong Yong (James) Choi, Q CELLS USA President/COO.
High Performance, High Quality
Q CELLS saw the growing demand from U.S. customers and realized the best way to better serve those needs was to establish a plant in closer proximity to its customer base. As one of the world’s largest and most recognized photovoltaic (PV) manufacturers known for its high-quality solar cells and modules, Q CELLS assembles high-performance and high-quality photovoltaic modules at the new plant.
The company needed its operation up and running as soon as possible and challenged Gray to complete the project on a fast-track schedule. Thanks to around the clock, seven days a week crews, Gray was able to complete the more than 300,000 s.f. facility in just seven months.
This facility is the largest solar module plant in the Western Hemisphere and boasts an annual production capacity of 1.7 gigawatts, an amount nearly equivalent to the peak output of the Hoover Dam.
