Karnataka-based solar manufacturer Emmvee, which currently has a 500 MW module production facility, is expanding its manufacturing capacity with the setting up of a 3 GW cell and module factory.
The new manufacturing facility will come up at the Dobaspet town in the Bengaluru district of Karnataka, marking Emmvee’s second solar manufacturing investment in Karnataka after the existing 500 MW plant.
Emmvee has already signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Karnataka government to set up the cell and module plant with an investment of INR 825 crore (US$110.4 million).
The new plant is expected to provide jobs to 736 local youths.
Currently, Emmvee manufactures mono PERC, polycrystalline, bifacial, and AC solar modules. It has manufactured and supplied more than 1.5 GW of PV modules in India and across the world.
