  • The event brings the global and high quality solar panel manufacturer closer to their 55GW PV module manufacturing capacity goal. 

As Astronergy’s seventh intelligent manufacturing base and the second-largest base of Astronergy in Zhejiang Province, Yiwu Base has a total of 8GW PV cell and 8GW PV module manufacturing capacities, which all use the company’s independently developed n-type TOPCon 3.0 tech.

The full running of the base will have an annual output value of about 1.65 billion dollars, said Dr. Chuan Lu, President & CEO at Astronergy, at the groundbreaking ceremony. Taking the logistics and port advantages of Yiwu City, Astronergy is to transport frontier TOPCon PV modules to all corners of China and all its overseas markets to satisfy customers’ needs for all application scenarios, added Dr. Chuan Lu.
