Longi and Tongwei have both seen changes in ownership in recent days. Meanwhile, Maxwell Technology has unveiled a plan to build a heterojunction cell factory Jiangsu Province and the Henan Group has entered PV glass and module production.
On Friday, three Chinese government ministries issued a joint “2018 Solar PV Power Generation Notice.” Its impact has been hotly debated since, with two key conclusions: the largest market segment – utility-scale PV – will take a pounding and not come close to last year’s record installation figure of just under 34 GW; and the expanding distributed generation market segment, which rose 360% from 2016 to 2017, will also be severely impacted by a 10 GW cap on new projects.
The Asian companies will form a joint venture in India to execute the plan. The project’s total investment is expected to be around US$930 million, which will be used for the production of solar PV ingots, wafers, cells, modules and batteries.
A unit of Solargiga Energy Holdings has revealed plans to invest CNY 160 million ($25.2 million) in 1 GW per year of PV module production capacity.
Solargiga is ramping up its production capacity for monocrystalline silicon ingot and monocrystalline silicon wafers at a new factory in Quijing, China. Expansion undertaken alongside subsidiary Jinzhou Yangguang Energy.
Solargiga Energy’s shipments of PV cells, solar panels, silicon ingots and wafers reached 1.16 GW in the first half of 2017, up nearly 55% year on year. Revenue from its production business rose 16.2% on the year to CNY 1.97 billion ($291.6 million), according to unaudited preliminary operating statistics filed to the Hong Kong stock exchange.
