Prices surge even as module prices stabilize: As per a PV InfoLink report:
- The month-long downward trend of polysilicon prices has stopped for the moment, and the prices have returned to RMB 230-234/kg ($36.28 – $36.91/kg)
- Then mainstream trading prices for 182mm mono-Si wafers with a thickness of 165um rose to RMB 6.1-6.16/piece ($0.96-$0.97/piece); the 210mm/160um format to RMB 8.1/piece ($1.28/piece), and the 166mm/165um format to RMB 5.15-5.2/piece ($0.81-$0.82/piece)
- Cell manufacturers raised price quotes for M6, M10, and G12 cells by RMB 0.02-0.04/W ($0.0032- 0.0063/W); RMB 1.08-1.09/W ($0.17-$0.17/W); RMB 1.1-1.11/W ($0.17-$0.18/W), and RMB 1.1/W ($0.17/W), respectively, in response to price hikes from leading wafer manufacturers
- Module prices have not seen much change despite upstream price hikes
Shanghai HIUV New Material to invest RMB 200 mn: Solar module encapsulation supplier Shanghai HIUV New Material announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Taizhou HIUV Applied Materials Co., Ltd. and Taizhou Haiyou New Energy Group Co., Ltd. have signed a Photovoltaic Packaging Materials Agreement. The planned total investment of the project is about RMB 200 million ($31.54 million). Once the project is put into production, about 5 GW to 10 GW of capacity of PV modules will be produced.
Ningxia Zhonghuan’s G12 monocrystal rolled out: Ningxia Zhonghuan’s 50 GW (G12) solar-grade monocrystalline silicon material smart factory rolls outs its first G12 monocrystalline ingot, which is 3600 mm in length, 300 mm in diameter, and weighs 612.8 kg. The total investment of the project is RMB 15 billion ($2.37 billion), and once put into complete production, will create 4500 jobs. Ningxia Zhonghuan Photovoltaic Materials Co., Ltd. is a subsidiary of Zhonghuan Semiconductor (TZS).
Trina invests RMB 200 mn for subsidiary: Chinese solar module manufacturer Trina Solar has established a wholly-owned subsidiary, Trina Solar (Shanghai) Co., Ltd., with a registered capital of RMB 200 million ($31.54 million). The business scope of the new company includes import and export of goods and technology.
