Silfab Ontario, an Italian PV module provider, has chosen SCC Solar Energy, a subsidiary of Silicon Chemical, to provide program and engineering construction management for its new 180MW solar module manufacturing plant in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.

The contract requires SCC Solar to collaborate closely with Green to Green Engineering (G2G), a division of Silfab that has developed the production process and equipment specifications for the Mississauga plant, to ready the facility for its first phase of production in early 2011.

While G2G Engineering will manage the module production line design and processes, SCC Solar will be required to supply the program control and engineering for the construction of the building, utilities, and all other general services for the project.

Although the facility will primarily produce Silfab’s silicon modules, it will also include production for Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) companies as well, paving the way for Silfab to export its PV experience and know-how in a rapidly growing market.

SCC president and CEO Gary Phillips said that SCC Solar is pleased to have been chosen by Silfab Ontario as their engineering, and program and construction management provider.

“SCC and SCC Solar are committed to providing cost effective and sustainable solutions for the manufacture of solar materials,” Phillips said.
