Tongwei invests in 200,000 tons pure crystal silicon facility: Integrated solar PV manufacturer from China, Tongwei said over a WeChat communication that it has signed up for a 200,000 tons of high-purity crystalline silicon facility with the Kundulun District People’s Government of Baotou City. Tongwei will be investing about RMB 14 billion towards this facility. By the end of 2022, the company expects its polysilicon and solar cells production capacity to touch 350,000 tons and 70 GW. By 2024-2026, it plans to achieve a production capacity of 800,000 tons to 1 million tons and 130GW to 150GW of high-purity crystalline silicon and solar cells respectively.
Construction begins for Taoistic Solar’s high-efficiency cell production facility: Taoistic Solar said that its high-efficiency cell facility in Xuzhou Airport Economic Development Zone has begun construction. With an investment of RMB 5.5 billion ($0.79 billion), the facility will be built in two phases. About 5 GW TOPCon solar cells will be built in the first phase, while 5 GW high-efficiency heterojunction (HJT) solar cells will be built in the second phase. On completion of the first phase, annual sales revenue is expected to be RMB 5 billion ($0.72 billion).
