In preparation for our latest manufacturing and technology webinars on Wednesday 7 December and Thursday 8 December, we have updated our in-house models for the Silicon Module Super League (SMSL) companies, revealing the continued push towards high-efficiency cell production.
Having recently revealed that ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member JinkoSolar had become the largest solar PV module manufacturer in 2016, PV Tech gets to grips with the key factors behind the success.
‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member Trina Solar has significantly missed its third quarter 2016 PV module shipment guidance range that makes meeting previous full-year shipment projections almost unattainable.
This blog contains the concluding part of my Tales from Taiwan feature, with the first blog - Tales from Taiwan Part 1: more capacity comes online, but not in Taiwan - appearing on PV-Tech earlier this week.
After a week in Taiwan, overlapping with the PV Taiwan exhibition and conference in Taipei last week, my main takeaway is the scale of new capacity that is confirmed to be coming online over the next 3-6 months, no matter what is happening today regarding supply levels and end-market demand. This and other conclusions from my week in Taiwan are covered in two blogs this week on PV-Tech.
Leading ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member JinkoSolar said its founder and chairmen, Xiande Li would purchase a major share it the downstream PV power plant business, Jinko Power for US$250 million.
PV laser technology equipment specialist InnoLas Solutions has supplied its ILS-TT rotary table laser production tool to ‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member, Hanwha Q CELLS R&D facility in Germany to support next-generation PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Contact) development.
‘Silicon Module Super League’ (SMSL) member Canadian Solar said that its recently launched 72-cell 1500V multicrystalline modules would be deployed at two planned PV power plants in Australia with a cumulative capacity of 47MWp.
