Astronergy Initiates 10MW PV Project in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region
06/20/2009


NINGXIA- Astronergy and its partners have formally launched the first 10MW phase of a planned 100MW solar photovoltaic power station in central China's Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region. Initially covering two square kilometers in Shizuishan City in the arid Gobi Desert region, the project is expected to be completed within three years.

In response to ongoing local and regional government calls for the development of new energy resources, Astronergy (a subsidiary of the Chint Group) teamed up with a number of investment and technology partners to prepare proposals. After several rounds of consultations, demonstration initiatives, and inspections, the company's power station proposal won strong support from across the board.

Half of the project's first phase will use Astronergy's conventional monocrystalline or polycrystalline silicon PV modules, while the other half will employ the company's new amorphous-silicon/microcrystalline-silicon tandem junction thin film technology, which are manufactured using a turnkey production line from Oerlikon Solar.

Once fully built, the power station will generate 100MW of clean, renewable electricity. Given the average daily use of 2kWh per family per day in the region, the Astronergy arrays should provide adequate power for over 50,000 families.

Based in Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province, Astronergy is the first Chinese company to mass produce second-generation a-Si/µc-Si thin film PV. With 100MW of c-Si module manufacturing capacity already online, the company inaugurated its first 30MW a-Si/µc-Si production line in June and expects to reach 1GW production capacity by 2012. The company also recently raised USD 50 million in a round of global fundraising.
