Premier Energies to set up solar PV facility at Hyderabad’s E-city

Solar module maker Premier Energies is setting up a solar photovoltaic (PV) module manufacturing facility at E-city, Hyderabad, to enhance its module production capacity.

Domestic solar module manufacturers are gradually increasing capacities to supply India’s solar project pipeline of more than 53 GW and another 24.1 GW of projects, tendered and pending auctions as of Q1 2021.

Chiranjeev Saluja, Managing Director of Premier Energies, told the media that the manufacturing plant in Hyderabad has 750 MW each of solar modules and solar cells production capacity. The firm has a total module production capacity of 1.25 GW and 750 MW of solar cell manufacturing capacity. The firm also intends to expand its capacity by 2 GW in the next two years.

With an investment of Rs 4.83 billion, the new plant has been established. With this new facility, Premier Energies is likely to be amongst the top five solar module producers in India.

Additionally, the Managing Director told the media that the new manufacturing facility is completely operational. The facility can produce the latest metal catalyst chemical etching textured multi-crystalline cells, mono passivated emitter and rear cells (PERC) while the module production facility will be able to produce the latest multi busbar half-cut and bifacial modules.

The new facility has a completely automated solar cell manufacturing line with mono PERC and multi-crystalline cell technologies. The line can manage wafer sizes from 156 mm to 210 mm. The module manufacturing line generates half-cut and bifacial modules.

The facility has quality control systems such as statistical process control and total quality control, and the facility is certified with ISO 9001/ ISO 14001.

He added that by expanding the capacity with this new facility, the company would be able to add to India’s growth story. Additionally, this launch will improve the availability of the highest quality of ‘Made in India’ solar cells aligned to the government’s Atmanirbhar Bharat initiatives.

Telangana government provided the right incentives to install the facility and supply quality water and power, which are vital for solar cell manufacturing.

The company aims to have a sales spread and export solar modules to North America and European markets.
