By establishing tight cooperation with the Limburg government and Belgian Research Institute for Tandem technology development, Belinus’ the first phase of 500MW TopCon solar panel production line will create 128 jobs locally in the solar energy field, and the second phase will be exceeding 1GW TBC line.

The total capacity will exceed 5GW by the end of 2025. The cell technologies will used will be TBC & TopCon, and the locations will be Belgium and Georgia.

A new factory allows Belinus to tighten its distributorship network and presence not just around Europe but to target the US market too. The company will continue its expansion drive with leading Tier1 manufacturers. Belinus has started in working with 2 out of the World’s Top 5 retained executive search firms for the Plant Manager and Group CEO positions to speed up the process of meeting the high demand needs of the targeted customers.

“The demand for Belinus products and solar solutions is even higher than expected and forecasted. we are already in active negotiations with local government officials to start the production by the end of the first quarter of 2024. In addition, we recently enforced our strength on the 35 years warranty insurance, and we will made the annoucement during InterSolar Europe in June” – says Francis Rome, the Chairman of Belinus.

It is worth highlighting that Belinus is well known as the only producer of ultra-black double-glass IBC PV modules. Recently the jury of solar solutions Amsterdam and Be Positive Lyon has chosen the product to be nominated as the innovation of 2023 in solar energy solutions categories. Thanks to its size, very high efficiency and long lifespan, the Belinus IBC ultra-black double-glass panel is ultimately a very cost-effective product with up to 22% efficiency. When applied in the right configuration, it allows you to get the most financial return from your sustainable solution and the elegant slick black aesthetics.
