Elkem Solar will start production in REC’s old factory at Herøya. The startup will create 70 new jobs.
– We have now decided to start production in the factory at Heroya. We will develop our renewable technology further and create about 70 new jobs,  CEO of Elkem Solar, Inge Grubben-Stromnes, says.
The initiative will also  indirectly provide ten more jobs, with room for further growth, according to a press release.
– The focus on Herøya will strengthen our existing production and will be a part of the world’s most energy- and cost-efficient value chain for solar cells, says Grubben-Stromnes.
