Shanghai-based manufacturer JA Solar has commenced mass production of high-performance photovoltaic (PV) panels at its new manufacturing facility in Xingtai, China.
Located in the Economic Development District of Xingtai city, the new production plant has a total capacity of 1.5GW with assembly lines using the company's PERCIUM technology to manufacture 60-cell and 72-cell modules.
The process is completely automated and the facility can either produce regular modules, double-glass modules, or a mix of both.
JA Solar's board executive chairman and chief executive officer Baofang Jin said: "The grand opening of our fully automated module manufacturing facility in Xingtai marks JA Solar taking one step forward in terms of intelligent manufacturing.
"We will keep focussing on technological innovation and continue to improve the performance of our products to meet customer demand for high-quality products."
The production per capita of the facility is estimated to be 2MW per year. It accommodates test and measurement, stockrooms, module assembly and warehouse, increasing energy efficiency.
