PVTIME – Construction of Guangdong Gaojing Solar Technology Co., Ltd.’s (hereinafter referred to as “Gaojing Solar”) 50GW large-size monocrystalline silicon wafer project has officially begun in Jinwan District of Zhuhai.
According to reports, the construction of Gaojing Solar’s 50GW wafer production project will be carried out in three phases. Construction of the first phase will be completed in July and its 15GW of capacity will be fully operational in September. Phase II is expected to reach full production capacity of 15GW in 2022, and Phase III will bring the final 20GW of capacity online by the end of 2023.
Gaojing Solar plans on competing as one of the global leaders in the field of large-size wafers going forward. Xu Zhiqun, the founder of the project, said, “This project is mainly based on large-size silicon wafers because we see the opportunities for 210mm in 1-2 years. Large-size silicon wafers require corresponding equipment. Our project will have unique advantages in terms of subsequent cost competitiveness and quality competitiveness.”
