(EUMSEONG=Yonhap News) Eumseong County and Hanwha Q Cells signed an investment agreement on July 15 to expand a plant that produces PV modules on 30,000 ㎡ of land at the Geumwang Industrial Complex.
Hanwha Q Cells plans to complete the expansion in the first half of 2016 to produce PV modules, which will be exported to countries including the United States.
The company already has a facility to produce 250 MW of modules, which went into test run last May.
The company will encourage regional construction companies to take part in the plant expansion project and hire residents to revitalize the economy.
The County agreed to provide administrative support for the expansion project.
The County expects the plant to create 700 new jobs when it goes into operation.
