February 5, 2019 in the winery opened a new plant for the production of solar panels, in which investors have invested €5 million in the First phase of production to ensure the production stations with a total capacity of about 200 MW per year. However, it is expected that by the end of 2019 from the conveyor will go twice more panels.

The KNESS company, which launched a new factory specializing in the development and implementation of projects for production of both traditional and renewable energy. The production of the panels has already been launched, although the company has not yet formed a complete personnel structure. While the plant is working one shift of 37 people, although plans to move production to a non-stop operation, informs Rus.Media.

While in the KNESS I expect that 90% of production will be able to sell in Ukraine. And the remainder will be delivered in the United States. For the manufacture of solar panels use photovoltaic cells based on polycrystalline silicon and monocrystalline silicon with an efficiency of up to 21.5%. This, however, is far from record levels. World leaders have launched serial production plants with efficiency up to 25%. The value of their products in the retail company does not disclose.

It should be noted that in the Ukrainian market KNESS is not the first company that undertook to develop the production of solar panels. For example, in Kiev of a solar system produces domestic company PJSC “Kvazar”. In addition, now there is talk about opening another such plant for the production of photovoltaic panels in the Kherson region, where the investor has agreed to serve Global Lithuanian company BOD Group.
