India is getting closer to its goal of developing a domestic, vertically integrating solar PV manufacturing and distribution industry. In a big step toward becoming the country’s sole producer of monocrystalline silicon ingots and wafers by 2023, Adani Solar unveiled its 1st large size ingot. Adani Solar operates under the umbrella of Adani New Industries Ltd, which is working to create the biggest green hydrogen eco- system on the planet. It took about seven months to integrate the ingot line infrastructure backward
Ingots of large sized monocrystalline silicon were being produced by Adani Solar in India on Wednesday. In a statement, the company said the monocrystalline ingots will maximize the efficiency of silicon-based photovoltaic (PV) modules when used to produce renewable electricity.
With 1.2 GW of solar cells and modules capacity in 2017, the company is ramping up to 4 GW of modules capacity and solar cells in 2022 with the new manufacturing line at the Mundra facility.
By the end of 2023, the company plans to increase its ingot and wafer production capacity by 2 GW. By 2025, 10 GW will be installed. It has already established a first-of-its-kind factory in India of GW scale that began operations in 2016.
