Today we looked back on the past year with our entire team at the festive end of the year. We are so proud of the many beautiful steps and developments that have taken place in the past year. We were able to further expand the partnership with Sunport Power by installing full-size industrial production tools at their Wuxi facility. The Chinese factories of Sunport Power in Nanjing, Pizhou and Wuxi are now producing an annual 6.6 million solar panels yielding a combined power supply of 2 GWp per annum.
We have also entered into a strategic partnership with Silfab Solar with the aim to introduce back-contact solar panels in North America. The installation of a full-size industrial production line in their facility in Bellingham has marked the first step in this collaboration. The production line is capable for both full-size back contact modules as well as half-cell modules which show a performance increase.
In 2019 we achieved 3 GWp back-contact PV modules production capacity with our installed production lines. This is equivalent to 9 million solar panels a year. Achieving this goal was a wonderful milestone for our entire team and a huge recognition for all our efforts to innovate in the field of high-performance back-contact solar panels.
We would like to thank our customers and partners for the pleasant cooperation. We are now going to enjoy a short holiday and hope to meet you again in 2020.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
