Baja Sun Energy has partnered with Arima EcoEnergy to construct a concentrated solar system manufacturing plant in the US state of Mexico.

Arima is now a stakeholder in the enterpridse and will also be the supplier of concentrated photovoltaic solar technology, gallium arsenide semiconductors and other materials to Baja Sun, under the terms of the partnership agreement.

The company will invest about $500m over the next four years to build a 100MW concentrated solar system manufacturing facility.

Arima will oversee the development of the plant and will equip it with concentrated photovoltaic solar manufacturing equipment to manufacture cells, modules and dual axis tracking systems.

The panels manufactured will be used in a utility-sized solar generation facility in the Silicon Border CleanTECH Park in Mexicali, Mexico later this year.

The company has also secured an order for the construction of a 10MW solar facility.
