JAKARTADAILY.ID – Trina Solar, a Chinese provider of photovoltaic modules and smart energy solutions had started the construction of a new energy industrial park project in Xining, the provincial capital of Qinghai in China.
In the statement sent to JakartaDaily.id on Thursday, July 14, 2022, the ceremonial marking of the start of the construction was held on June 28.
"The project will cover almost the entire PV manufacturing chain from polysilicon production to modules based on 210 and N-type technology. 10GW N-type modules are on the way, for higher customer value," it said.
N-type module refers to a solar panel with cells consisting of an n-type silicon layer coated with a phosphorus layer.
Trina Solar said the factory "will include production lines with an annual output of 300,000 tonnes of industrial silicon, 150,000 tonnes of high-purity polysilicon, 35GW of mono silicon, 10GW of wafer slices, 10GW of cells, 10GW of modules, and 15GW of auxiliaries for modules."
The project will be divided into two phases, with phase one due to be completed by the end of 2023, it is expected to see an annual output of industrial silicon at 100,000 tonnes; high-purity polysilicon at 50,000 tonnes, mono silicon at 20GW, wafer slices 5GW, of cells 5GW, of modules 5GW, and of auxiliaries 7.5GW.
In the second phase, Trina Solar expects the annual output of industrial silicon will be at 200,000 tonnes, high-purity polysilicon at 100,000 tonnes; mono silicon 15GW, of wafer slices 5GW, of cells 5GW, of modules 5GW, and of auxiliaries 7.5GW.
Phase II is due to be completed by the end of 2025.
