India’s Kosol Energie expands its annual solar module production capacity to 1.1 GW by installing a new 850 MW line from SC Solar. It is aiming for 1.9 GW of cumulative solar module capacity by the end of the current financial year.
Gujarat-based Kosol Energie is expanding its solar module production capacity in India to 1.1 GW per year by adding a new 850 MW line. It has placed an order for an 850 MW production line with SC Solar and expects the installation to be completed by the end of June. The company will further expand to a cumulative power of 1.9 GW by commissioning another 850 MW line by March 31, 2024.
Jeet Acharya, global head of solar and thermal at Kosol Energie, said pv magazine that the new 850 MW fully automated line will be equipped with the latest testing equipment in accordance with the IEC standard 2021. Thanks to the expansion, the company can manufacture all types of modules with powers ranging from 20 Wp to 720 Wp.
“The new 850 MW line is capable of producing M10 and M12 mono PERC cells from p-type and n-type TopCon and HJT cells,” Acharya said. “With very high efficiencies of up to 24.5%, these modules are an excellent choice for residential and commercial solar applications.”
