The Mexican Silicon Border Science Park located in Mexicali, Baja California in Mexico was completed more than four years ago. However, this Baja California science park remind virtually empty of establishments and investors’ facilities which has lead many to have negative comments as the science park was not fulfilling its potential.
This may not be the case for long though as it was reported that the Q-Cells AG, a giant in the solar cell industry, would be investing a whooping 3.5 billion dollars in Mexicali’s Silicon Border Science Park.
If you are not familiar with Q-Cells, then all you really need to know it that it is the world’s biggest and most well-known manufacturer of solar-cells. People from Q-Cells have stated that they plan to construct a 150 acre facility in Mexicali, Baja California in Mexico and the construction of this said facility would begin in the later part of this year, 2008.
Although this extensive planned construction of facilities by Q-Cells would take up 150 acres, the Mexican Silicon Border Science Park in Mexicali still has plenty of room for more investors as the who area spans more than 10,000 acres.
