According to reports, the base is located in Changgucheng Industrial Park, Tangxian Economic Development Zone, Hebei Province. Jointly built by the People’s Government of Tangxian County and Yingli Group, the intelligent manufacturing base will cover an area of about 82 acres and have an annual photovoltaic module production capacity of 5GW. Furthermore, the base will focus on the research and development of new photovoltaic green building materials, and promote the development of building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV). In addition, the base will also manufacture supporting products such as 2,400 tons of soldering ribbons for photovoltaic modules, 14.4 million sets of junction boxes, and 2,300 tons of enameled wires. The construction of this base will hopefully attract other companies along the industrial supply chain to settle in Tangxian County, provide more than 1,000 jobs for the local area, and effectively stimulate local economic development.
