The largest monocrystalline wafer producer, LONGi Green Energy Technology Co has signed a project investment agreement with the local government of Taizhou City, China to expand its PV module assembly capacity by 5GW at the Taizhou New Energy Industrial Park.
LONGi said that the new expansion was scheduled to gradually start production in 2020. The PV manufacturing facilities at the industrial park are operated by its subsidiary, LONGi Solar, which are highly automated and include R&D and module testing and certification facilities with 2GW of mono solar cell and module assembly capacity at the end of 2018.
In March, 2019, LONGi Solar officially opened its latest 5GW high-efficiency monocrystalline module factory in Chuzhou, Anhui, China at a cost of US$328 million. As a result, the ‘Solar Module Super League’ (SMSL) member would have a nameplate module capacity of 13GW in 2019.
LONGi Solar also announced at the beginning of June, 2019 that it was building a new 1.25GW mono-cell production plant in the Shama Jaya Free Industrial Park, Kuching City, Sarawak, Malaysia.
The company already operates a facility with 500MW of solar cell and module assembly capacity in the industrial park.
The 6th Annual Solar & Storage Finance Asia conference will bring together policy makers, developers, financers and investors from across the region to discuss how we mobilise investment in tomorrow’s projects and overcome some of the challenges slowing us down. Don’t miss out, join the conversation and help us in our goal of driving forward large-scale renewable Solar & Storage projects across Asia.
The first ever event dedicated specifically to solar PV Heterojunction manufacturing and multi-GW production challenges and opportunities. Meet the global community driving Heterojunction to multi-GW status in mass production today in the spectacular setting of St. Petersburg in Russia.
Going into its fifth year over 200 delegates from 150 companies and 20 countries representing the PV supply chain will gather in Malaysia to discuss the technology roadmaps for PV cell advancement in GW markets. The scope of the event has been expanded this year, to cover developments in wafer supply and thin-film investments and technologies alongside all the regular benefits to all stakeholders tracking PV technology and investment trends for the next 5 years.
Understand fully the technical and logistical supply chains that determine the production and performance of solar modules, including all related factors impacting quality, reliability & bankability.
