AVANCIS supplies CIGS technology for thin-film factory.

CNBM, China's largest building materials group and parent company of German premium module manufacturer AVANCIS, has celebrated the production launch "First Module Out" at China's most advanced CIGS PV plant.

The start of the 300 MW factory is the first production unit of the largest CIGS solar factory at this location with a planned annual output of 1.5 gigawatts.

The 55,000 square meter CIGS technology was supplied by AVANCIS, one of the leading manufacturers of premium thin-film modules. In further development measures, the largest and most advanced solar production facility will be expanded to a total of 270,000 square meters.

‘China has ambitious solar energy programs. By the end of March 2017, the generated solar energy in the People's Republic of China increased to 21.4 million kilowatt hours. Nevertheless, solar energy accounts for only 1 percent of the Chinese energy mix’, explains Oliver Just, CEO of AVANCIS.

‘The demand for solar energy in the country is huge especially the demand for premium quality solar modules is enormous. With the start of production, we will have the opportunity to manufacture and market our high quality thin-film technology on site for the largest photovoltaic market. Especially in projects where quality and aesthetics are mission-critical factors, our glass-glass modules occupy a technological top position.’ 


Further CIGS production sites in China follow

In line with the high sustainability goals of the People's Republic of China, the expansion of solar energy through Giga Watt production facilities is being continuously advanced. In this context, CNBM has sealed three more CIGS solar factories with gigawatt production volumes in China with groundbreaking ceremonies over the last two years.
