The SMSL has actually added a 6GW module setting up plant to strategies introduced in September to establish a 6GW advanced, high-efficiency solar cell plant as well as supporting facilities at a new production center in the Yangzhou Economic and also Technological Development Zone (ETDZ), Jiangsu province, which was part of a fourth wave of growth strategies announced through the initial nine months of the year.

JA Solar said that the brand-new module assembly plant to be operated by a new subsidiary, JA Solar (Yangzhou) New Energy, would have a resources cost of around RMB 796.3 million (US$ 121.9 million) as well as was to be created for high-efficiency items.

The firm has actually authorized the building and construction of the plant as well as claimed it would take eight months to develop as well as equip.

PV Tech formerly highlighted that the initial 6GW solar cell plant that would be found in the ETDZ would be operated by JA Solar (Yangzhou) Solar Technology Co, set you back around RMB1.72 billion (US$ 252 million) and also would take around 12 months to finish.

Unlike the majority of SMSL participants, JA Solar adheres to an incorporated and also well balanced manufacturing capability method, running ingot/wafer, cell as well as module setting up in-house at practically equivalent capability levels.

The most up to date 6GW module assembly strategy (F5) attends to the out of balance growth prepare for module setting up compared to ingot/wafer and also cells that were apparent after its 4th (F4) and also last wave of statements that was available in September 2020.

Nevertheless, not all the strategies announced in 2020 are anticipated to be operational in 2021 as these plans include multiple stages over several years and not all timelines for each and every different project have actually been disclosed.
