Engineers India Ltd (EIL) announced this week it has been appointed as owner’s engineer for Adani Group’s 30,000 MTPA polysilicon and 500 MTPA monosilane project. It landed the contract from Mundra Solar Technology, a group company of Adani Enterprises.
Polysilicon is the primary component for manufacturing photovoltaic panels. Globally, polysilicon production is concentrated in China and the US. Monosilane (SiH4) is a gaseous compound used for production of polysilicon.
India’s ambitious solar power generation target implies that the country would need significant PV component manufacturing capacities to meet the resulting demand. However, the nation lacks polysilicon manufacturing capacity and is dependent on imports.
As part of its strategic plan, Adani Group targets 10 GW of polysilicon-to-solar module manufacturing capacity up and running by 2025. The group, which already manufactures cells and modules, recently unveiled its silicon ingot made in India.
“[Polysilicon production] would be a step towards realizing the vision of Atmanirbhar Bharat. This would also contribute towards nation’s target of Net Zero by 2070,” stated EIL.
