The ability development will certainly allow JA Solar to generate 18,000 MT at the Xingtai center. The business did not claim what the ingot dimension would certainly be as the market is swiftly moving to a variety of bigger wafer dimensions consisting of the 210mm x 210mm dimension from the biggest ingot dimension of 300mm, which entered into quantity manufacturing in late 2019 at Tianjin Zhonghuan Semiconductor.

JA Solar did reveal the quantity of capital investment needed for the project.

The firm has actually made numerous significant ability development news in 2020, right after a supply relisting in China at the end of 2019.

JA Solar had actually claimed in January 2020 that it had actually begun ramping a 1.6 GW monocrystalline ingot manufacturing growth project at its major ingot manufacturing plant in Baotou, Inner Mongolia.

PV Tech just recently highlighted that JA Solar A Solar was intending to increase high-efficiency solar battery capability to 10GW at a lately introduced 5GW brand-new solar battery factory in China, while likewise purchasing significant upgrades at a current cell plant to offer an additional 3.6 GW of high-efficiency cell capability.

JA Solar likewise revealed that it would certainly invest RMB 1.3 billion (US$ 161.3 million) on updating 3.6 GW of solar battery ability at its existing cell center in Jinglong Third Industrial Park, Ningjin County, Xingtai City, Hebei Province.

At the beginning of the year, JA Solar likewise revealed strategies to expands PV module ability by 10GW at 2 centers, setting you back 6.6 billion Yuan (US$ 948 million), while broadening solar manufacturing by an additional 5GW.
