NorSun is a Norwegian solar energy company that manufactures and markets high performance mono-crystalline silicon ingots and wafers for the global solar energy industry. Dedicated to high efficiency n-type wafers and sustainable production with low CO2 emissions, we are an established supplier to tier-one cell manufacturers.
NorSun operates a modern production facility located in Årdal in western Norway, pursuing a detailed and aggressive technology development and cost road map which ensures a competitive price model. The NorSun plant is powered by low cost renewable hydropower, enabling very low emissions from production.
In June 2019, the company closed a NOK 230 million equity round to increase the production capacity to 1 GW, introduce new technologies, and significantly reduce unit costs.

NorSun was established in 2005 by Dr. Alf Bjørseth’s company Scatec. At our facility in Årdal, Norway, production of mono-crystalline ingots was initiated early in 2008 and we expanded to wafer production in mid 2009. Today, we are an established supplier to tier-one cell manufacturers and operating a modern production facility. Our technology and cost road maps ensure a competitive price model, and our company is well positioned for further growth in an attractive solar energy market segment.
