Leadership through innovation
The story of SoliTek dates back to 2009 when the group of industrial manufacturing company BOD GROUP engineers together with scientific partners started research into improving solar cells efficiency.
Realising its immense research and production potential, BOD GROUP founded a solar technology company Solitek Cells that eventually became the leading solar panel manufacturer in the Scandinavian region.
02Export of solar panels
80% of Solitek solar panels are exported to Sweden, Norway, Finland, Germany, etc.
Solar panels will be exported in 2020. The majority of our customers are PV installers, distributors, and project developers in the EU.
Know-how of solar industry
SoliTek is part of BOD GROUP, a privately-owned engineering company, whose expertise dates back to 1998, when the first industrial CD manufacturing plant was established in Vilnius. Since then, constant innovation and engineering R&D enabled the diversification and expansion of the business. Today BOD GROUP covers 3 major areas: solar technology (SoliTek), ophthalmic lenses (Bod Lenses) and CD manufacturing (BOD). All 3 businesses have one major technology in common – thin layer coatings.

Renewable in production
SoliTek R&D, manufacturing & head office are based in a “Greenest Industrial Building in Europe”, that was recognized as such in 2013 by German Chamber of Commerce.
Being at the European forefront of solar technology innovation, SoliTek is putting maximum effort not only to supply renewable energy technologies, but to do this in a most environmentally friendly way. Due to our use of renewable energy in manufacturing, we save over 400 tons of CO2 from emission each year. That’s the equivalent of planting 2000 trees.
Production is powered and cooled by renewable energy mix – both solar (150 kW on the roof of the building) and geothermal (108 boreholes as deep as 148 m underground), which produces 1 MW of Geothermal power.
