Photovoltaic Modules

COPELOUZOS GROUP, having foreseen the rapid growth of the photovoltaic sector in Greece and in the neigh boring countries, expanded its activities in the production of photovoltaic modules.

COPELOUZOS GROUP, through its subsidiaries PIRITIUM S.A. and SILCIO S.A. has built and operates two fully automated, vertically integrated plants in the Industrial Area of Patras for the production of polycrystalline silicon wafers, photovoltaic (PV) cells and PV modules (panels).

The plant of PIRITIUM S.A. uses solar grade silicon (SoGSi) to produce about 40MWp polycrystalline silicon wafers annually. SILCIO S.A. possesses a production capacity of 31MWp of PV cells and 20MWp of PV panels. Parts of the PV panels produced are sold to the Greek Market while the rest are exported in many countries, such as Italy, Turkey, Germany, and Italy. The SILCIO PV panels are already installed and operate with high efficiency in a significant number of PV parks and roofs all over Greece.

COPELOUZOS GROUP has placed great importance to the pioneer technology of the two industrial units. For this reason, the most up-to-date production processes have been installed. Moreover, the design and construction of the production lines have been developed by European firms considered as leaders in the sector. The production lines operate automatically and produce top quality and highly efficient polycrystalline photovoltaic cells and frames at the most competitive production cost.

Significant importance has been placed to environmental issues with the factory design adhering to the strictest EU norms. Effluents and water are recycled for economic and environmental reasons.
