Serbia gets its first solar photovoltaic panel factory

The Domi Eko Solar Company has launched the production of photovoltaic panels in its factory near Velika Plana in central Serbia. It is the first PV panel production unit in the country.

Serbia has been recording a large increase in demand for solar panels for self-consumption. Since the country adopted relevant regulations early last year enabling electricity buyers to become prosumers, their number exceeded 2,700 and the installed capacity topped 37 MW. At the same time, private investments in large solar power plants are under development as is a 1 GW project implemented by the Government of Serbia.

Dragan Rajović, director and owner of Domi Eko Solar, told Balkan Green Energy News it would produce two types of panels – 450 kW for prosumers, both citizens and businesses and 550 kW for solar power plants of larger capacity.

“The factory’s capacity is 100 MW per year. The plan is to reach it by the middle of next year,” Rajović explained and added that the investment in production equipment is estimated at EUR 3 million.

Italian producer Ecoprogetti delivered the manufacturing equipment. Rajović pointed out that representatives of the TÜV SÜD accreditation body would arrive in a few days to examine the production standards and issue IEC 61215 and IEC 61730 certificates.

Vladimir Dimitrijević, project manager at Domi Eko Solar, explained that the line is semi-automatic, with ten operators working one shift. The plan is to employ a total of 45 workers who will work in three shifts, he revealed.
