PVTIME - On November 7th, JA Solar held the groundbreaking ceremony for its 3.5GW high-power module project in Vietnam with relevant leaders and construction representatives in attendance.
The establishment of the Vietnam module production base is an important step for the acceleration of JA Solar’s global development strategy and will boost its overseas integrated production capacity. JA Solar is utilizing 700 million yuan as well as existing land in Vietnam to build a 3.5GW high-power module production line and supporting facilities. After the project is put into production, it will increase the overseas production capacity of JA Solar's modules, better meet the needs of customers in the North American market, and enhance JA's competitiveness and profitability.
This particular project is a part of JA Solar’s 10.391 billion yuan expansion plan announced back on September 15 which outlined its intent to expand its integrated production capacity of ingots, wafers, solar cells, and solar modules. A detailed article about the expansion plan can be found here.
