The solar module megacomplex is the biggest such project ever before revealed in the solar market, according to PV Tech's evaluation.

GCL-SI authorized a financial investment collaboration contract with individuals's Government of Feidong County in Hefei City, Anhui Province, China with the megacomplex to be situated in the Feidong County Circular Economy Demonstration Park, inhabiting the matching of 1.33 kilometres ² to house all making procedures as well as companion production and also supply chain procedures that would certainly be required for such a huge brand-new production center.

The megacomplex will certainly consist of wafer, cell, module and all part producing such as junction box, backsheets, glass, EVA as well as aluminium frameworks as well as job is to begin in 2020.

The four-year, four-phase application strategy consists of a yearly financial investment of around RMB 5 billion (US$ 700 million) for 15GW of incorporated PV module setting up capability. The centers would certainly likewise be very automated and also consist of a range of sophisticated production modern technologies.

GCL-SI likewise kept in mind that most of module production would certainly be concentrated on utilizing 210mm x 210mm large-area monocrystalline wafers.

A crucial goal of the megacomplex is to satisfy future need as well as substantially drive down the production expense of PV components to unmatched degrees.
