Gujarat-based Kosol Energie is expanding its solar module production capacity to 1.1 GW per year with the addition of a new 850 MW line. It has given the 850 MW manufacturing line order to SC Solar and expects installation of this line to complete by June end. The company will be further expanding to a cumulative capacity of 1.9 GW with the commissioning of another 850 MW line by March 31, 2024.
Jeet Acharya, international solar and thermal manager, Kosol Energie, told pv magazine that the new 850 MW fully automated line is equipped with the latest testing facilities as per the IEC standard 2021, including Eternalsun Spire sun simulator m/c and electrical double-side heating for glass-to-glass bifacial modules.
This expansion will allow the company to produce all types of modules with outputs ranging from 20 Wp to 720 Wp. “The new 850 MW line will be able to produce M10 and M12 mono PERC cells of p-type and n-type TopCon and HJT cells. With a very high efficiency of up to 24.5%, these modules will be an excellent choice for residential and commercial solar applications,” said Acharya.
Kosol Energie is already a part of Munich Re insurance for products. It has branches in the USA, Europe, UAE, Australia, and other parts of the world.
