Chinese PV module assembly equipment specialist Yingkou Jinchen Machinery has struck another deal with Indian module manufacturer Waaree, this time to supply it with a 2.5 GW high-efficiency module production line as an extension of business relationship.

Jinchen has been a big player in the Indian market lately, securing a series of deals with Indian module producers who intend to increase their production capacity in line with government policy.

In January last year, Jinchen signed a contract with Waaree to supply a 3 GW production line for the manufacturer’s factory in Mumbai, where it will be used to produce Waaree’s high-efficiency solar modules.

The latest agreement between Jinchen and Waaree brings the total volume of module production lines sold to 10 GW. Jinchen has so far delivered 6 GW, with 4 GW expected to be delivered this year.

Jinchen has previously provided automated module assembly lines to Silicon Module Super League (SMSL) members LONGi Solar, GCL System Integrated (GCL-SI) and JA Solar.

Elsewhere, Jinchen will supply Indian conglomerate Adani Group’s photovoltaic manufacturing arm with a 2GW module production line as it deepens its ties with Indian manufacturers, making India one of its most important markets.
