Standard Energy has secured the first batch of equipment for its 3 GW silicon wafer and 3 GW solar cell smart factory in Thailand as it prepares to start production.

The $100 million facility, which Standard Energy says will be the third-largest smart factory in Thailand, is located in the LK Rayong Industrial City Hub, in the southeastern part of the country.

Construction began in 2023. The solar cell production line is expected to start operating in July, with the silicon wafer production line to follow in September. The factory will serve solar panel manufacturers throughout the world and is expected to create more than 1,000 local jobs.

In April, Astronergy Thailand Manufacturing Base started production at a 5 GW wafer factory in Thailand.
