The company has begun trial production of their in-house steel wire and expects a capacity of 8,400 metric tons a year of by the end of 2011.
ReneSola also developed a new generation of casting furnaces with a capacity of 650 kilograms and annual output of 8 megawatts, compared with about 6 megawatts for its current ovens. The new furnace is expected to replace all current casting furnaces by the end of 2011.
