Transportation, Renewable Power Lead Fourth-Quarter Project Starts in Washington and Oregon, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Sep 23, 2011) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Washington and Oregon are planning to begin more than $1.4 billion in major industrial projects during the fourth quarter of this year. While a light-rail extension leads the way in terms of value, many of the higher-value projects involve renewable energy production and the manufacturing of photovoltaic components. Construction on two photovoltaic component manufacturing plants is planned to begin in Oregon during the quarter. The projects have a combined total investment value of approximately $256 million and will manufacture solar cells and modules for the photovoltaic power sector.
