The Company was added to the TOP-10 solar module suppliers of 2018 list by PV-Tech. Moreover, we are on the list of Top 5 module suppliers to Ukraine.
Please tell us about your company’s plans for 2019.
We plan to increase the capacity and upgrade the production line. By the way, half-cell PV modules make up 30% of our annual capacity, mono perc – 50% of the annual capacity.
By the way, according to pv-magazine, on the 5th of February 2019, Talesun Solar started its cell lines upgrade projects of both Thailand and China factories. The upgrade projects aim to expand the capacity of mono PERC cell to 3 GW total including the entire Thailand factory capacity by end of 2019 and this will sharply increase the proportion of mono PERC in products’ lines.
