Spanish Mondragon Assembly to supply solar module production line to Netherlands-based module manufacturer Solarge BV

The equipment is an automatic line designed ad hoc and manufactured to produce lightweight solar modules which have been developed by the Dutch company. The line will be installed in the third quarter of the year at the Solarge manufacturing facility in the Dutch municipality of Weert, and will begin production by the end of this year.

Mondragon Assembly said it developed the project in collaboration with Solarge. “All the key machines have been adapted to the customer’s needs,” he said. “The new order represents another step for Mondragon Assembly to establish itself as a provider of high-value technology solutions suitable for any application.

Solarge manufactures a lightweight module, 100% recyclable, free of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). It releases up to 75% less carbon during the manufacturing process, according to Mondragon Assembly. Solarge modules are lighter than conventional solar modules and ideal for rooftops with limited load capacity.

“Solarge’s use of fiber-reinforced polymers has allowed them to create the basis for a new patented technique for manufacturing lightweight photovoltaic modules,” said Mondragon Assembly, noting that this technique will allow Solarge to choose and use the best solar cells available.

Solarge’s technology can be applied in agrivoltaic projects, floating photovoltaic panels and roof systems. It plans to expand the capacity of the production line to 380 MWp by 2024.

“Mondragon Assembly and Solarge hope to successfully launch this innovative technology as a new standard in the solar industry,” the company said.
