Solar module manufacturer Pixon has started manufacturing ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) films too since October this year. The EVA film factory, with a capacity of 800 MW/annum, is located in Rajkot, Gujarat, where it also has its module production capacity.
Pixon, which currently has a 400 MW module factory, intends module capacity expansion and further backward integration.
At Intersolar, Sumit Mehta, Pixon founder and director, told pv magazine they plan to start the production of aluminium frames and backsheets at their existing facility. The company is also scaling up module production capacity to 1 GW with the addition of a 600 MW mono PERC line.
The new module line will be equipped to produce panels with peak power output up to 600-700Wp and will be operational by May 2022.
