Jinchen to install 600 MW of lamination equipment in India by November 2017

Over the next two months Jinchen Machinery Co Ltd. is to install 600 MW of PV lamination machines in two Indian states, West Bengal and Gujarat.

Already across the country Jinchen has commissioned 2 GW module manufacturing lines, including their own laminators and stringers.

Focusing on the Indian market, Mr. Vikas Singh, Sales Manager, Jinchen Machinery Co Ltd, told pv magazine: “We are planning to open a Jinchen office in India, to provide on-site services, and a spare parts inventory hub.”

Just recently the company installed a 200 MW fully automated module manufacturing turnkey line for GCL-Poly. The line requires no manpower, claims Jinchen, and thus can deliver lower production costs.

Commenting on the current state of the Indian manufacturing market and ongoing anti-dumping investigation against Chinese and Tawainese solar components, Singh added: “The integrators and installers are confident that anti-dumping will not come to India, therefore, such low tariffs were bid in the solar plant auctions.”
