Karnataka-based Emmvee Group, which currently has 1.25 GW of module production capacity, has started building a new 1.5 GW solar cell line and 1.75 GW module manufacturing facility at Dabaspet, Bengaluru. “The facility will be the most advanced and fully automated production line with a built-up area of 500,000 square feet,” stated the company.
The latest addition will expand Emmvee’s module capacity to 3 GW.
The module and cell facilities are scheduled to commence operation in June 2023 and early 2024, respectively.
“With this integrated manufacturing facility, we would have stronger control over our supply chain, providing the latest technology that meets global standards and requirements. With the start of construction of our new facility, Emmvee will continue to fulfill the increasing demand and support its customers in business continuity by timely execution of supply,” said Manjunatha, managing director of Emmvee Group of Companies.
“The expansion of capacity is under INR 1,000-crore MoU recently signed with the government of Karnataka,” said Suhas Donthi, group director, Emmvee Group of Companies.
