BAJsolar has finished building a 10 GW solar cell factory in eastern China. It has invested CNY 2.6 billion ($355.75 million) in the new facility.
BAJsolar has commissioned a 10 GW solar cell factory in Yangzhou, Jiangsu province. The new facility will produce tunnel oxide passivated contact (TOPCon) cells. It announced the completion of the plant’s construction earlier this month. The company said it is looking for opportunities at home and in foreign markets, including India and Turkey. It is also building a 26 GW cell factory in Jiangshan, Zhejiang province. BAJsolar, a unit of Suzhou-based Zhejiang Bangjie Holding Group, said it wants to enhance its industrial supply chain and expand R&D.
Cell maker CHG EnSOL Renewable Technology (CHG EnSOL) said it plans to build a new solar cell manufacturing facility in Anqing, Anhui province. The factory will produce n-type TOPCon cells and have a capacity of 20 GW. The company said it is targeting to reach a total cell capacity of 50 GW next year.
Panel manufacturer Seraphim said it signed an agreement with the city government of Nantong, Jiangsu province, to expand its PV module capacity of 15 GW. The expansion plan will require an investment of CNY6 billion ($833 million). Seraphim said all the new production lines will be compatible with large-size wafers.
