Module manufacturer REC Solar, in cooperation with its parent company Reliance Industries, has ramped up recruitment of staff for its India solar manufacturing plant that is currently under construction.
The ‘Dhirubhai Ambani Green Energy Giga Complex’ located in the city of Jamnagar, Gujarat – a major solar state in India – will ramp up the production of heterojunction (HJT) modules including its main line, the Alpha Pure series.
Jan Enno Bicker, CEO at REC, said: “We have huge expansion plans in the region, and we are looking for new talents to join Jamnagar’s Solar Giga Factory and our Centre for Excellence in Singapore.”
The company will also be showcasing its latest product, the Alpha Pure-R, first revealed at Intersolar Europe in May, at the Renewable Energy India exposition that will be held during the 28-30 September.
This latest addition to the Alpha series has been designed to cater for the residential market as it maintained the size of the modules to less than two square meters in area.
Since the company has been acquired by Reliance last year, it has not stopped expanding its production of heterojunction modules as it aims to double the production capacity of its Singapore plant from 600MW to 1.2GW where it will produce the Alpha Pure-R since this month.
Moreover, last month, the module manufacturer had been selected by the European Union to receive a grant for the building of a 2GW HJT plant in France.
