Jakson says its new, fully automated production line produces the latest p-type, n-type and G-12 solar modules in both single and bifacial formats.
The Indian energy group Jakson Group said this week that it had signed an agreement with China’s Jinchen Corp. for a 600 MW solar power production line. The deal is a step forward in Jakson’s plan to expand its solar energy production capacity in India to 3 GW per year by 2026, while also serving international markets.
Jakson currently has a 500 MW solar module plant in Greater Noida. Jinchen’s 600 MW equipment line will increase its current capacity in Greater Noida to 1.1 GW.
Jakson said that the installation of the new production line will be completed by the middle of this year. The fully automated line will be equipped to produce the latest p-type, n-type and G-12 modules in both mono and bifacial versions.
The Indian company first announced its plans to manufacture solar panels in September. It said it will expand its cumulative module capacity to 1 GW in five months from the current 500 MW. It aims to have 2 GW of cumulative, operational cell and module capacity by the end of 2024.
The company also has ambitious plans for the production of green hydrogen, green ammonia and electrolysis equipment. It is now in talks with leading suppliers of alkaline electrolysis technology to start electrolysis production under a joint venture.
