Hanergy to build 10 MW GaAs thin film R&D fab in Wuhan


Hanergy Thin Film Power Group is set to build a 10 MW gallium arsenide (GaAs) thin film solar cell research and development and manufacturing factory in Wuhan, China.

The company will construct the new fab at the Huangpi Linkong Industrial Park as part of an investment agreement with the Huangpi district government in Wuhan City.

The move follows Hanergy’s acquisition of California-based GaAs specialist Alta Devices in January and marks the group’s first GaAs thin film solar call R&D fab in China.

The manufacturing facility also comes as Hanergy explores new application areas for its flexible thin film GaAs products and further seeks to expand the utilization of mobile solar energy.

The project is receiving strong support from the Huangpi district government in Wuhan, which will oversee the construction of the production site, warehouse, factory facilities and power systems and then lease the site to Hanergy.
