TSE is a shareholder in the HoloSolis consortium, whose aim is the production of photovoltaic panels.” Made in France ”. The objective? Contribute to the reindustrialization of our continent through the creation of the largest factory in Europe for the production of photovoltaic cells and modules.

Located in Hambach, in the agglomeration of Sarreguemines in Moselle, the factory benefits from a strategic geographical position in the center of Europe. The Holosolis site, located within the Europole 2 commercial activity zone, will be at the heart of a territory with a strong industrial culture and an adapted employment area.

The development of HoloSolis is part of the European strategy of fight against global warming and should make it possible to strengthen France's industrial and energy sovereignty.
