EcoSolifer, a solar panel producer using Hungarian know-how,  is building a HUF 15 bln solar cell plant in Csorna, northwest Hungary, the company announced today.

Hungarian State secretary Péter Szijjártó said the government would support the investment with a HUF 1 bln grant.

Construction of the plant, which is expected to employ 212 people, should be finished by the second half of 2015.

EcoSolifer managing director Ákos Haidegger said the unit would chiefly produce for export.

Production of solar energy panels is on the rise in the country. Two Hungarian companies, Jüllich Glas and Agulhas-Solar, recently announced that they were boosting production and expanding in the country.
