The construction of Norstel’s Norrköping plant began in February 2005, and it was officially inaugurated in August 2006.
It has been carefully designed and equipped with the best available infrastructure, process tools and characterization equipment. This makes it one of the most modern and advanced facilities existing in the world today that is focused purely on producing single crystal SiC materials.
The Norrköping plant is located on a green field site 4 km from the center of the city of Norrköping.
Environmental impact is minimized through the use of sophisticated waste gas systems and in-house treatment of used process chemicals and waste water. All operations are strictly in accordance with the Environmental Permits granted by the Swedish authorities.
