Borosil Renewables said this week that the solar glass production capacity of its German unit, GMB Glasmanufaktur Brandenburg GmbH, has increased to 350 tpd from 300 tpd, following the modification and cold repair of its solar glass furnace.
The company said the life expectancy of the furnace has increased due to the modification. Due to the implementation of certain advanced processes and technologies during the cold repair, GMB’s production capacity has also increased from 300 tpd to 350 tpd. The manufacturer said it expects the modification to result in substantial savings in energy consumption.
In January, Borosil Renewables began expanding its solar panel glass manufacturing capacity in India to 1,000 tons per day by starting trial production at its third solar glass furnace, which has a capacity of 550 tons per day. With 1,000 tons per day of capacity, it can supply solar glass for 6 GW of solar module production per year.
The company’s other two furnaces in India have production capacities of 240 tons per day and 210 tons per day.
