Chinese PV Industry Brief: Another factory under construction


Chinese panel maker Talesun has started construction of its new module production facility in Siyang county, Jiangsu province. The factory is being set up in an 80,000m2 building and is expected to have a 5 GW annual production capacity for cells and modules. When it begins manufacturing in July, Talesun's module capacity will reach 15 GW.

The company's turnover reached RMB3.58 billion (US$560 million) and net profit dropped 27.6%, year-on-year, to RMB523 million. Jinko said the Covid-19 crisis had a significant impact on its operations, due to fewer-than-expected engineering, procurement and construction contracts and several delayed projects.
