Satinal Spa Unveils EUR 40 Million Investment Plan for Solar Panel Encapsulants
Satinal Spa announces an ambitious EUR 40 million investment plan, set to establish a new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Apulia Region, Italy. The strategic Italian solar valley will house the production line dedicated to STRATO® SOLAR, a new division of Satinal Group, focusing on EVA, POE, and TPO solar encapsulants for solar panels.
A Vision for Growth: Pioneering Solar Encapsulants
The forward-looking plan consists of a 4-year business growth strategy, comprising two stages, aiming to extend the production site of STRATO® SOLAR up to 20,000 sqm by 2027. Once fully operational, the facility will boast an impressive annual production capacity of 10 GW, equivalent to 100 million square meters of EVA films. This groundbreaking project also anticipates the creation of up to 100 jobs.
Striving for Sustainability: Carbon Free EVA Encapsulant

Starting from 2024, three production lines dedicated to STRATO® SOLAR PV Encapsulants will operate with an annual production capacity of 2 GW. These eco-friendly efforts reflect Satinal’s commitment to innovation and sustainability.
