JA Solar claimed that the Phase I (5GW solar cell, 5GW module assembly) center had actually started manufacturing, at first utilizing 182mm x 182mm large-area wafers. The Phase I solar cell project had formerly been reported to set you back US$ 399 million, while the 10GW setting up plant would set you back around US$ 550 million.

The Phase 1 full ramp is anticipated to be finished in 2021. Stage II will be finished and also start ramping some time in 2023.

The business had around 11GW of ingot/wafer, solar cell and module assembly nameplate ability at the end of 2019 and also has strategies to reach ingot/wafer capacity of 18GW, as well as 16GW of solar cell ability, by the end of 2020. JA Solar is targeting 23GW of module setting up capacity by the end of 2020.

All 3 segments can reach 30GW by the end of 2021, according to the business.

JA Solar's capacity development statements in the initial 9 months 2020 can result in 35.8 GW of ingot/wafer capacity expansions, covered slightly by sophisticated solar cell expansion strategies of 36.5 GW as well as module assembly development prepares reaching 32GW by the end of 2023. Capital expenditures could be around US$ 4.1 billion.
