  • Unimot has expanded the annual production capacity of its AVIA fab in Poland to 45 MW
  • It was opened in July 2021 using components from 3M, Interfloat and DOW and also offer private label solutions
  • The fab can manufacturer M12 silicon monocrystalline cells with power range of 350W to over 450W

Poland based liquid fuels supplier Unimot producing solar PV modules under the AVIA Solar brand has expanded its annual production capacity of its Polish fab 3-fold to 45 MW, up from 15 MW, attributing the planned increase to growing demand for Made in Europe PV panels. Future capacity expansion can be considered by the management.

“The time of the pandemic and the war in Ukraine have shown how important the quality and reliability of a local supplier are,” stated Unimot CEO Adam Sikorski. “By choosing AVIA Solar’s European panels, the customer can expect far greater order flexibility compared to Asian products, the purchase of which involves long delivery times and the need to cover logistics costs.”

Unimot set up the AVIA solar module manufacturing line in July 2021 using components from 3M, Interfloat and DOW, while also offering private label solutions as targeting companies that want to manufacture panels under their own brands, it explained.

The AVIA line is equipped to manufacture M12 wafer sized silicon monocrystalline cells. AVIA panels are available in the power range of 350W to over 450W. Unimot said it sources highest quality raw materials from ‘well-known brands’.

Sikorski added, “The power capacity of photovoltaic installations in Poland is already approximately 12 GW, while government plans assumed a capacity of 10 GW of energy from the sun only in 2040. It’s a trend we’ve been observing throughout Europe, so our goal is to offer our Polish-made panels throughout the European market.”
