Goldi Solar, a Gujarat-based solar panel manufacturer and EPC provider, has announced its plans to increase its manufacturing capacity to 2.5 GW per annum with a new facility on the outskirts of Surat in Gujarat.
The manufacturer’s existing facility has a solar panel capacity of 500 MW. The expansion of 2 GW has been planned in two stages. The 1 GW capacity planned in the first phase is slated to become operational by September end this year. The second phase of production will start by the end of March next year.
Goldi Solar’s new facility will also see a production line implementing a first-of-its-kind micro-gap module technology (MGMT). It will produce modules with a gap of less than 0.75 mm between the cells in the string instead of the standard 1.5 mm. This would ensure better coverage, resulting in improved productivity and higher outputs.
The line will produce mono-facial and bi-facial modules with peak power outputs exceeding 500 W and 600 W, respectively. It will implement M10 ((182mm x 182mm) wafer size, multi-busbars (MBB), and PERC solar cell technology.
