Yingli Green to stop capacity expansions at 600MW



Yingli Green Energy is to increase production of polysilicon ingots and wafers, PV cells and PV modules to its capacity target of 600MW in 2009, as previously stated but said that it doesn’t currently have plans to add any further capacity passed this projected level. Yingli Green also said that it would be focusing on maximizing utilization of its existing capacity and cost reduction strategies.

Yingli Green recently added 200MW of annual manufacturing capacity bringing its total annual manufacturing capacity to 400MW in 2008. 

The integrated PV manufacturer also noted that its current line of credit and cash flows from operations were sufficient for the its next 200MW expansion phase, negating any need for further funds through 2009.
