Tata Power Solar doubles manufacturing capacity at Bengaluru to 1,100 MW
08 April 2021
Tata Power Solar Systems Limited, India’s largest integrated solar company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tata Power, on Wednesday announced a doubling of production capacity of cells and modules at its manufacturing facility in Bengaluru to 1,100 MW.
Under the expansion programme, the plant’s manufacturing capacity of cells has gone up from 300 MW to 530 MW and that of Mono PERCs and Modules from 400 MW to 580 MW with Mono PERC Half Cut technology.
These state-of-the-art lines are capable of handling 166 mm - 210 mm wafers and also module wattage ranging from 440 watts to 530 watts with option for bifacial modules, the company stated in a release.
The expansion is based on the significant increase in demand that the company has seen for its solar modules, as well as the expected increase in demand due to supportive policy steps announced recently by the government of India for creating ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’.
Tata Power Solar is one of the few companies globally to have a long operating history of 31 years. It has also been able to honour the 25 years warranty that solar modules come with. The company has been supportive of the government’s initiative to make the country a manufacturing hub and lessen its dependency on other countries as far as import of solar cells and modules are concerned.
“We are happy to expand our production capacity to meet the increased demand for our products. Our 31 years of strong experience in providing high quality solar products with continuous involvement in new technology has helped us to maintain leadership position in both solar manufacturing and EPC services,” Praveer Sinha, CEO and MD, Tata Power, said.
Tata Power Solar’s manufacturing plant in Bengaluru is India’s premier integrated cell and module manufacturing facility that meets the highest industry standards. The plant is ISO 9001:2015, ISO 45001:2018 & ISO 14001:2015 certified which has more than 25 years of production experience.
Apart from being one of the pioneering solar manufacturers in the world, Tata Power Solar is also India’s largest specialised EPC player. Tata Power Solar comes with a successful background of executing large projects such as the 150 MW Ayana at Ananthapur, 50 MW at Kasargod in Kerala, 56 MW Greenko, 30 MWp Solar Power Plant in Lapanga, Odisha, 105 MWp floating solar at Kayamkulam.
