LONGi Launches New 5GW Mono Module Plant, Increases Supply Capacity

News

LONGi Solar, a global supplier of solar monocrystalline products, announced the commissioning of its 5GW high-efficiency monocrystalline module factory in Chuzhou, Anhui, China. This is another step forward in the company's enhancement of its high-efficiency monocrystalline module capacity to meet rising global demand for high-efficiency products.

LONGi Chuzhou 5GW factory, with a total investment of about USD 328 million, broke ground on May 2018. Contract, construction and commissioning were completed the same year. With cutting-edge equipment, technology and fully automated production lines, the factory manufactures high-efficiency modules, including the innovative Hi-MO3 bifacial mono half-cut PERC module and other next-generation products that meets the demand for high-efficiency, high-reliability and high-yield products.

After equipment commissioning, capacity ramp-up, efficiency stabilization and finalization work, LONGi Chuzhou factory rolled out its first module in January 2019. 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.

In the recent two years, mono PERC has been acclaimed and recognized in the global PV module market. High-efficiency PERC technology further enhances the power output and effectively reduces BOS cost. Add bifacial technology and it extends the advantages of monocrystalline PERC to the rear side of the module to enhance power generation capacity. At present, LONGi's monocrystalline cell and module capacities are all PERC, producing both monofacial and bifacial products.

Li Wenxue, President of LONGi Solar, 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.”

LONGi also announced 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. As a global leader in solar monocrystalline technology, LONGi will continue to invest in R&D and maintain product and technology leadership and accelerate the vision of grid parity worldwide.
