Sun Well chairman reveals plans for Nanjing thin-film PV plant

Sun Well Solar chairman Robert Wong revealed plans for the company's new production plant in Nanjing, eastern China during the facility's groundbreaking ceremony on April 29.

The Taiwan-based producer of a-Si thin-film PV modules will initially invest US$100 million to establish an annual capacity of 50MWp, according to Wong. By 2015, total investment at the plant will reach US$6 billion for an annual capacity topping at 300MWp.

The Nanjing plant has already received 21MWp worth of orders, he added.

The Nanjing capacity will focus on a-Si thin-film PV modules for the China market including high-margin products for BIPV (building-integrated PV) and agricultural solar greenhouses in the region, said executives from its China operation.

Sun Well is currently running at full capacity with order visibility reaching 2011, Wong disclosed.

In related news, Sun Well has shipped 2MWp of thin-film PV modules for various agricultural solar greenhouses in China, industry sources said. The company is said to have landed orders for solar greenhouse projects amounting to about 12MWp in Jiangsu and Heilongjiang provinces.
