Gujarati company Solex Energy has signed a deal for 1.2 GW of solar module production equipment from China’s Jinchen Machinery as it plans to expand output.
The 600 MW first phase of the fab will be commissioned by October, according to the manufacturer. A memorandum of understanding signed with Jinchen stipulates the installation of phase two will begin as soon as the initial production capacity goes into operation.
The production line, which is being installed near Surat, will be fully automated and capable of manufacturing panels based on wafers up to 210mm in size and featuring multi-busbar cells and micro-gap technology.
Solex intends to take a ‘backward integration’ approach to expanding its production capacity as it will develop a solar cell production facility after the module line is completed.
The company is one of India’s oldest PV module manufacturers and has had a production plant at Anand, in Gujarat, since 2007. Solex is listed on the National Stock Exchange.

Not a good idea to buy ANYTHING from China…. ALL THEIR EQUIPMENT IS COMPROMISED BY China’s National CCP Policy to “evesdrop” on EVERYONE…
Buying components are bad enpugh (yes each and every chip can be compromised by The CCP… whether you like it or not…) … but when you buy a “full factory” to make Solar Stuff… you just opened the “Rear Door” to India’s Security WIDE OPEN …. as India’s soldiers risk their lives… to protect India’s Himalayan Borders…
Solex Solar is doing the right thing …. BUT THE WRONG WAY …. BAD IDEA… ALL THE WAY…
