  • Sofar Solar holds ground-breaking ceremony for new R&D and manufacturing project for energy products in Huizhou
  • C New Energy’s 2020 annual report shows operating income at RMB 4.04 billion ($0.62 billion), a year-on-year increase of 60.03%
  • Zhonghuan Semiconductor photovoltaic crystal output exceeds 20,000 tons in April 2021 due to technological progress and in-depth application of Industry 4.0

Sofar Solar opens new manufacturing base for inverter & energy storage lines: Solar PV inverter manufacturer Sofar Solar held the ground-breaking ceremony for its new R&D and manufacturing project for energy products in Huizhou. Covering an area of 50 mu (360,000 sqft), the project comprises 15 inverter production lines, 10 energy storage production lines and a logistics center. With a total investment of RMB 400 million ($61.79 billion), the R&D facility will host Sofar Solar’s global data center as well as a product testing facility. After completion and when fully operational, the annual sales volume is expected to be at RMB 5 billion ($0.77 billion); sales revenue is predicted to exceed RMB 10 billion yuan ($1.54 billion) in 2026. Last year, Sofar Solar had entered into a strategic cooperation with solar products distributor Failte Solar of Ireland to explore opportunities in the Irish solar market (see China PV News Snippets: Hangzhou, Canadian Solar, Sofar Solar)

S.C New Energy releases 2020 annual report: Releasing its 2020 annual performance report, Solar PV production equipment manufacturer S.C New Energy said that its operating income in 2020 stood at approximately RMB 4.04 billion ($0.62 billion), a year-on-year increase of 60.03%. During this period, the Chinese company had improved and released new production equipment addressing the heterojunction cell production segment  (see China PV News Snippets: LONGi, Cybrid, Antaisolar)

Zhonghuan Semiconductor new energy PV output exceed 20,000 tons: Chinese solar wafer manufacturer Tianjin Zhonghuan Semiconductor Co., Ltd  (TZS) announced that due to technological progress and in-depth application of Industry 4.0, the company’s monocrystalline silicon ingot output had exceeded 20,000 tons in April 2021, with an annual output equal to more than 60 GW, 2 months in advance. While the annual output of G12 monocrystal reached 27 GW/year, the company’s external shipments of photovoltaic monocrystalline silicon wafers in the first quarter of 2021 was at 13.2 GW. Recently, Zhonghuan Semiconductor had announced its 2020 results and said that it has achieved an operating income of RMB 19.05 billion (RMB 2.93 billion), a year-on-year increase of 12.85% (see China PV News Snippets: Zhonghuan, Sineng, JYT). Earlier this month, it expressed its intention to raise RMB 9 billion to invest in the construction of a 50 GW (G12) solar-grade monocrystalline silicon material smart factory in Ningxia, Zhonghuan
