RenewSys India Pvt. Ltd. is expanding its PV solar cell RESERVTM manufacturing facility at Hyderabad
RenewSys India Pvt. Ltd. (RIPL) an Enpee Group company has placed an order with reputed European manufacturers for a 100 MW solar cell line. The new line will be shipped in Q2, 2016 and enhance RIPL’s cell making capacity to 130 MW. RIPL intends ordering another 100 MW line from the same vendors by Q3, 2016 and gradually build up its capacity to 500 MW. The lines will be installed at the 50 acre Hyderabad factory, RIPL recently
purchased from the lenders of Solar Semiconductors. The 80 MW module ( DESERVTM) making capacity at the same premises is also being increased to meet the requirement of OEM customers and for exports.
Concurrently, RIPL continues to play its leading role in the manufacture of EVA Encapsulant (CONSERVTM) and Backsheet (PRESERVTM) at its Bengaluru facility. Expansion plans for both products are on the anvil. With its focus on quality, in-house R&D and an integrated offering in the PV value chain, RIPL is working towards being a sustainable player in the global solar industry. It must be highlighted that the investments being made by RIPL are based on government policies including capital subsidy and DCR that encourage local manufacture of solar components. The Indian solar industry needs ‘handholding’ and time to build capacity & become competitive. “The future is, hopefully, bright!”
