One of the leading solar modules maker LONGi Solar has commissioned it’s another 5GW high-efficiency monocrystalline module plant in Chuzhou, Anhui, China.

The move has come as the company aimed at enhancing its high-efficiency monocrystalline module capacity to meet rising global demand for high-efficiency products.

Further, this 5GW factory was built with a total investment of about USD 328 million.

Also, LONGi Solar’s new facility with fully automated production line, manufactures high-efficiency modules, including the innovative Hi-MO3 bifacial mono half-cut PERC module and other next-generation products that meet the demand for high-efficiency, high-reliability and high-yield products.

Moreover, after equipment commissioning, capacity ramp-up, efficiency stabilization and finalization work, the company’s Chuzhou factory rolled out its first module in January 2019.

On production in new plant, the company said that, “Today, Phase 1 project with 2.5GW is in full swing, manufacturing modules for global customers. Phase 2 is in the commissioning stage and will start full production soon.”

Currently, the company’s monocrystalline cell and module capacities are all PERC, producing both monofacial and bifacial products.

Commenting on the development, LONGi Solar, President, Li Wenxue said, “In 2019, our company identified a gap between fast-growing global orders and our high-efficiency cell and module capacities. LONGi Chuzhou factory will greatly narrow this gap. Besides manufacturing, the factory will also facilitate the transformation of technological and technical achievements to the mass production of new products.”

Besides, the Chinese module maker also said that it will move ahead its 45GW monocrystalline silicon ingot and wafer capacity expansion plans for 2020, and adapt cell and module capacities to market demand.

Meanwhile, mono PERC has been acclaimed and recognized in the global PV module market nowadays and high-efficiency PERC technology further enhances the power output and effectively reduces BOS cost.
