Newly re-listed JA Solar unveils production expansion plans

The Chinese manufacturer debuted on the Shenzhen exchange in mid December, after de-listing from New York’s NASDAQ in 2018. The company plans to roll out 10 GW of new module capacity and 5 GW of cell lines over four years.

Chinese PV manufacturer JA Solar started the year with a bang by unveiling details of a four-year, RMB6.6 billion ($947 million) expansion plan.

The Beijing-based solar cell and module maker revealed on Wednesday it has signed an investment framework agreement with the city of Yiwu to develop new production lines.

The news came three weeks after the company achieved a backdoor listing on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange on December 12.

The company’s ambitious expansion plans run to 10 GW per year of new module manufacturing capacity, at a cost of around RMB3.82 billion, according to the company, and 5 GW of new cell lines worth RMB2.78 billion in the city, which is 100km south of Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang province.

JA Solar did add, however, the four-year plan would be periodically reviewed and would remain subject to market conditions.

The solar giant, which has been ranked in the world’s top five module manufacturers by volume shipped for the last three years, was listed on the NASDAQ exchange in the U.S. from 2007 until 2018, when it controversially de-listed to switch to the Shenzhen exchange.
