Aiko Solar also noted that it had achieved smooth production of the Tianjin Phase I and Yiwu Phase II cell capacity expansion projects from 2019, which included the ability to produce cells from the two largest available p-Type monocrystalline wafer sizes (166mm and 210mm) for high-efficiency applications. 

Emphasis is also being placed on further expansion of R&D activities through the next few years as well as to strengthen its management and improve the level of intelligent manufacturing at all of its manufacturing plants.
