Powerway’s 480 MW Chile project in Chile to meet electricity demands of 256,000 local households; Jinjing subsidiary’s back glass project begins production; CSG silicon project put into operation; Chint Solar begins construction of 100 MW agri-solar project.
Powerway wins 480 MW PV Chile project bid: China’s solar mounting system company Powerway said that it has won the contract for a ground mounting project in Chile with a total capacity of 480 MW. This project is supposedly the largest ground mounting projects in Chile and is located in central desert area. The project is expected to be connected to the grid by the end of 2023, and will meet the electricity demand of about 256,000 local households and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 610,000 ton.
Jinjing Malaysia PV glass line begins production: Chinese glass developer and producer Jinjing Group announced that its 500t/d thin-film photovoltaic module back glass production line constructed by its wholly-owned subsidiary, Jinjing Technology Malaysia Co., Ltd. has successfully begun production. The products from this line will mainly meet the demand for the back glass of thin-film photovoltaic modules. This in turn will increase the market share of Jinjing Group in the photovoltaic glass market.
CSG silicon project put into operation in Xiaoting: In an announcement, solar PV manufacturer CSG Holding Group said that its high-purity crystalline silicon project has been officially put into operation in Xiaoting. With an investment of RMB 4.5 billion ($0.71 billion), the project produces high-purity polysilicon, silicon wafers, ultra-thin electronic glass and other products. In December last year, CSG Group had achieved an operating income of RMB 6.61 billion (see China PV News Snippets)
Chint Solar begins construction of 100 MW project: Chint Solar announced that the construction for its 100 MW agricultural and solar project in Pinglu County has begun.
