Yingfa produces 210 large-size solar cells: Electronic product component manufacturer Yingfa Group’s 7.5 GW crystalline silicon solar cell production line was officially put into operation. The 210-size cell format is one of the important contents of Yingfa Group’s 7.5 GW solar cell production line. The project officially started in August 2020, with a total investment of RMB 5.5 billion ($0.84 billion) (see 7.5 GW Crystalline Silicon Solar Cell Fab In China). This is the first time that Yingfa Group has adopted fully automated machines and big data systems for a cell production line.
Shuangliang and Xinte sign strategic cooperation: Chinese production equipment maker Shuangliang Eco-Energy and Chinese polysilicon supplier Xinte Energy have signed a strategic cooperation agreement, where they will conduct comprehensive cooperation in solar-grade high-purity polysilicon business and monocrystalline silicon business. In the future, both the companies will cooperate in the entire industry chain of solar cells, modules and PV power plants. Recently, Shuangliang Eco-Energy had announced plans to venture into wafer & ingot production (see Shuangliang Eco-Energy: 40 GW Mono Wafer Capacity) while Xinte Energy had entered Investment Framework Agreement with Baotou City in China to build high-purity polysilicon fab with 200,000 annual production capacity (see Xinte Energy To Build 200,000 Tons Polysilicon Fab)
Trina Solar’s tracker lands in Uzbekistan’s PV power station: Chinese solar module manufacturer Trina Solar announced its participation in the construction of a 130 MW photovoltaic power station in Navoi, Uzbekistan. This is the first IPP power project planned by the Uzbekistan government for new energy and Trina Solar will be providing 2,618 sets of its Vanguard 2P tracker for this project. Recently, a report by Trina Solar said that 8 world’s leading photovoltaic tracker makers have successively issued compatibility approvals for 210 Ultra-High Power solar modules (see China PV News Snippets: Zhonghuan, Trina, Shangji CNC). Trina will present at the TaiyangNews Solar Tracker Conference on April 13. Free registration here.
Risen PV power plant in Cambodia successfully generates power: Chinese solar PV module producer Risen Energy’s first photovoltaic power plant project in Cambodia has successfully started generated power, according to PV Men Blog. The Battambang PV power plant project project covers an area of about 69 hectares and has an installed capacity of approximately 60 MWac. It uses Risen Energy’s 385 W modules and is scheduled to generate 1,535 hours of power in the first year. Last year, Risen had entered into a 15-year loan contract for $45 million with German Investment and Development Bank to build a large scale solar plant in Cambodia (see China PV News Snippets: Risen, Energy China, Chint Solar)
Priority for clean energy online: The National Energy Administration of China: The Chinese National Energy Administration of China issued the “Work Plan for Comprehensive Supervision of Clean Energy Consumption”. The plan aims to promote the efficient use of clean energy, urge relevant regions and enterprises to strictly implement the national clean energy policy, optimize clean energy grid connection and dispatch operation, regulate clean energy participation in market transactions, and timely discover the existence of clean energy development, and help achieve “carbon peak and carbon neutrality.”
