Trina Solar wins 1 GW PV + storage bid from CNNC; Baofeng Energy’s silicon fab online; China’s 10M 2023 PV cell production reaches 436.4 GW; Tongwei supplies 1.2 GW modules to Three Gorges Energy’s PV project; China MIIT prompts CPIA to enforce self-discipline.

Trina Solar wins CNNC’s EPC project bid: Solar module manufacturer Trina Solar has announced that it has secured the bid for a 1 GW integrated photovoltaic (PV) and energy storage project for CNNC in Hainan, Qinghai province. The project, located in Gonghe County of Hainan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, comprises a 1 GW solar PV area and a 150 MW/300 MWh energy storage facility under the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract. The solar field features 1,520,008 pieces of 660 W mono PV modules, 2,688 DC combiner boxes, and 667 300 kW string inverters. The energy storage system is configured as an independent and shared system with a capacity of 150 MW/300 MWh. Recently, Trina Solar and TW Solar (Tongwei) signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement that outlines plans for further collaboration in the PV industry chain (see China Solar PV News Snippets).

Guazhou Baofeng Energy’s polysilicon facility online: Baofeng Energy has announced that the Phase I of its polysilicon manufacturing facility has been fully put into operation in Guazhou County, Jiuquan City, Gansu Province. The factory, developed and operated by a subsidiary of Ningxia Baofeng Energy Group Co., Ltd., is being built with a total investment of RMB 39 billion ($5.45 billion). The overall plan includes the construction of a 350,000 tons/year of silicon, 300,000 tons/year polysilicon, 50 GW wafers, and 30 GW solar module production facilities, along with supporting 15 GW PV and wind power stations. The Phase I investment is approximately RMB 6.44 billion ($900 million) with a construction scale of 50,000 tons/year silicon and 2.5 GW/year wafers.

China’s solar cell production reaches 436.4 GW for 10M 2023: China’s National Bureau of Statistics has released data indicating that China’s domestic solar cell production in October reached 52.24GW, a YoY increase of 68.5% and an increase of 1.7% MoM. Cumulatively, for the period from January to October 2023, the country achieved total solar cell production of 436.4 GW, a growth of 63.7% compared to the 253.8 GW achieved during the same period last year.

Tongwei supplies 1.2 GW modules for Three Gorges Energy’s PV project: Tongwei Solar has announced the completion of the installation of 1.2 GW solar modules for the Three Gorges Energy 1 GW (AC) PV project in Haixi, Qinghai. Situated within the Wutumeiren PV-Thermal Park in Golmud City, Qinghai Province, the project is part of the first batch of wind and solar mega-base initiatives outlined in Qinghai’s 14th Five-Year Plan. Covering an area of 18.7 sq. km., the project features Tongwei’s 182 double glass bifacial 550 W modules. Upon completion, the power plant is expected to produce 2,586,629 kWh of electricity annually. Recently, Tongwei announced the launch of its TNC Module G12R series with 210R size cells (see China Solar PV News Snippets).

China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology calls for standardized PV Module power calibration: China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, with the guidance of its Electronic Information Department, has prompted the China Photovoltaic Industry Association (CPIA) to enforce self-discipline within the industry. They have introduced the “Photovoltaic Module Power Standardization and Traceability Self-Discipline Convention,” officially released on November 21. The convention aims to ensure accurate tracing of PV module power, reduce calibration deviations, and minimize subpar product occurrences. By guiding stakeholders, including manufacturers and testing organizations, it seeks to address discrepancies in module power data during domestic and international trade, fostering sustainable development in the photovoltaic market. Over 40 industry entities have already signed the convention, with plans for more to join in the future.
