The new capacity is expected to meet domestic solar module demand, which the PV manufacturer expects will significantly increase in the second half of this year.
The shift to the larger M6 wafer format could occur faster than many have expected. Promoted heavily by mono giant Longi, the format is said to be a good fit for both cell and module production, while still allowing for relatively trouble-free integration into PV arrays. And it all began in China.
WINAICO’s high efficiency mono crystalline WSP-M6 PERC module, with patented HeatCap technology, has exceeded Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institutes’ evaluations to win the Taiwan Excellent PV award given by the Bureau of Energy, of Ministry of Economic Affairs. The award confirms that WINAICO is the perfect combination of safety, efficiency and reliability.
China’s president has detailed plans to accelerate the planning and construction of large-scale wind and PV projects in desert areas, while Wuxi Shanghai announced new granular silicon and nano-silicon production capacity expansions.
Huawei Global Digital Power Summit 2021 is set to open on October 16 in Dubai with more than 300+ individuals attending the physical event, including executives from Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA), Group42, ACWA Power, du, Uptime Institute and Engie.
With the rise of large formats and n-type products beginning to make themselves known, these are exciting times for PV module manufacturing. Residential and commercial installations are also growing strongly in Europe and elsewhere, meaning there’s plenty to talk about with a module manufacturer that has long worked to establish itself in this space. In the following interview, Sascha Rossmann, vice president of global sales and Marc Ortmanns, Head of European marketing at Winaico provide a market update and closer look at the Taiwan-based module producer’s technology roadmap for the coming years.
German manufacturer Solarwatt today announced the opening of a new 300 MW module production facility, as well as new battery pack assembly lines, located on the outskirts of Dresden. The company invested around €35 million in the new lines and says it will begin delivering modules produced on the new equipment to customers as early as next week.
The manufacturer has raised the cost of all its products. Elsewhere, Xinyi is planning to deploy 5 GW of solar in Heilongjiang province and the China Electricity Council has reported the nation added 22 GW of solar in the first eight months of the year.
AntaiSolar has secured a 400 MW contract from Ningxia Jiayang Energy and Longi has raised the prices of all its wafers. Elsewhere, GCL New Energy has announced the sale of another 198 MW of project capacity.
