Jinchen has announced the signing of an agreement with leading Indian energy conglomerate Jakson Group, which will enable the latter to expand its annual solar PV manufacturing capacity by up to 3GW, enhancing its ability to cater for international markets.
The 3GW expansion will be achieved in phases, the first of which, an additional 600MW, is expected to be completed around the middle of the year. This will increase capacity at Jakson’s Greater Noida facility to 1.1GW, the new fully-automated production line equipped to produce the latest P type, N type and G-12 modules in both mono- and bi-facial formats.
Vikas Singh, Jinchen general manager for Indian operations, commented: “We have consistently partnered with companies operating in the renewable energy space to enable them to develop their power generation capacities and accelerate the transition to green energy. Jakson Group has a clear vision for developing the global solar power industry and we are proud to be able to assist them in this ambition. Our association will provide us with a further opportunity to showcase our advanced module manufacturing technology to the world.”
Bharat Gupta, Jakson Group head of international solar business, added: “We are delighted to have Jinchen onboard with us in what is a significant step in our efforts to help the world transition to clean energy. Our partnership will enable us to reach our short-term goal of achieving 3GW of manufacturing capacity by 2026, which will help us meet growing global demand, since we also plan to export modules to international markets. We are confident that our association with Jinchen will be beneficial for both companies and contribute towards building a sustainable future and achieving the larger goal of carbon neutrality.”
