Wafer capability growths have actually not gotten on the cards considering that 2018 therefore the current support is no brand-new wafer capability growths in 2020, leaving capability at 5GW.

Nevertheless, the SMSL included 200MW of ingot manufacturing in 2019, taking capability to 1,650 MW, while prepare for 2020 are to increase a little to 2,350 MW. The firm did not highlight whether the ingot manufacturing developments associated with cast-mono (multi), p-type mono or n-type mono manufacturing.

The firm seldom information capability growths on a geographical basis however has significant production procedures in China and also a lot smaller sized procedures in South East Asia, too a OEM acquired manufacturing in Vietnam and also Brazil.

Canadian Solar did not supply any kind of description regarding why the module setting up capability developments were needed in 2020, considered that module setting up ability in 2019 got to roughly 13GW as well as able to fulfill the premium of delivery support for 2020 of 12GW.
