Adani Solar, the photovoltaics unit of the Adani Group, has become India’s sole producer of large monocrystalline silicon ingots for M10 and G12 wafers.
Gautam Adani, the chairman of Adani, recently unveiled the new ingots at the group’s Mundra facility. The company says that the monocrystalline ingots will drive the production of renewable electricity from silicon-based PV modules, with efficiencies ranging from 21% to 24%.
Adani Solar is a part of Adani New Industries Ltd. (ANIL), which strives to develop the world’s largest green hydrogen ecosystem. It completed the backward integration of the ingot line infrastructure in about seven months.
The new manufacturing line will exclusively produce silicon ingots for Adani wafers, solar cells, and PV modules. The company has started initial production and plans to add 2 GW of ingot and wafer capacity by the end of 2023. By 2025, this will increase to 10 GW.
“We have made incredible technological advances in every aspect of solar manufacturing in the past, from cells to modules, and we aim to replicate our past successes in our future endeavors as we move forward combined to produce metallurgical grade silicon from quartz,” said Puneet Gupta, Adani Solar’s CTO.
Adani Solar built India’s first gigawatt-scale silicon-based cell and module factory in 2016. It has increased its annual production capacity of solar PV cells and modules from 1.2 GW in 2017 to 4 GW in 2022, making this is the largest vertically in the country. integrated PV manufacturer.
