December 27, Shanghai Electric released the announcement. Shenhua Group and Shanghai Electric have invested nearly 2.5 billion yuan to set up Shenhua (Beijing) Photovoltaic Technology R & D Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Shenhua Beijing) and Chongqing Shenhua Thin Film Solar Energy Technology Co., Ltd. (Shenhua Chongqing). Shenhua Group invested 1.535 billion yuan, respectively, two companies hold 60%, 74%, Shanghai Electric invested a total of 495 million yuan, respectively, holding 20%, 20%.
Shenhua Beijing registered capital of 1.225 billion yuan, of which Shenhua Group, Beijing Institute of low-carbon clean energy (hereinafter referred to as low-carbon) funded 735 million yuan, accounting for 60% shares, Shanghai Electric cash contribution of 245 million yuan, accounting for 20% German company Manz AG cash invested 184 million yuan, accounting for 15%; Beijing Science and Technology Industrial Development Co., Ltd. invested 64 million yuan, accounting for 5% shares. Shenhua Beijing business scope will involve high-efficiency photovoltaic cell technology and technology, the next solar powered generation technology and new product development and sales.
Thin-film solar cells with the industry chain of lower energy consumption, and the choice of a wider range of materials than crystalline silicon cells have higher power per watt, and the advantages of lighter weight and so on. At present, commercial thin-film solar cell technology mainly includes cadmium telluride (CdTe), copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) and amorphous silicon (a-Si) three, in recent years, CIGS thin film batteries grow rapidly, The proportion of battery production from 20.5% in 2011, rose rapidly to 41% in 2014.
However, due to the thin film solar cell process complexity, high investment costs, the supply of key raw materials and other issues, the current domestic photovoltaic enterprises are still taking most crystalline silicon cell line.
In May this year, Shanghai Electric to 387.7 million yuan to subscribe for Manz AG issuance of 1.5355 million new shares, accounting for the latter after the capital increase of 19.67% of the total. Founded in 1987, Manz AG is headquartered in Reutlingen, Germany, and is principally engaged in the manufacture of solar power batteries energy equipment, energy storage and electronics. The company has provided Apple with solar cell coating technology and equipment.
Shenhua Chongqing registered capital of 1.25 billion yuan, the parties are cash contributions. In addition to Shenhua Group and Shanghai Electric, the two strategic industries in Chongqing Liangjiang New Area Equity Investment Fund also funded participation. Shenhua Chongqing will be the main solar cell, component research and development, production, sales and installation, and solar energy applications such as sales.
Shenhua Chongqing plans to invest in the CIGS thin film solar cell module industrialization project, with an annual capacity of 306MW. The initial target market will be located in large-scale portable solar power generator solar photovoltaic power station, and gradually expand the building integrated energy saving (BIPV) market. Energy, energy storage and other new applications. The project is expected to total investment of 2.55 billion yuan, the capital source for the project registered capital of 1.25 billion yuan, the difference by the joint venture company to be resolved through bank loans.
In addition, as one of the joint venture investors have a low-carbon CIGS thin film solar cell test line, and enhance the CIGS thin-film solar cell module photoelectric conversion efficiency of the patented technology.
Leybold Tech said in a statement, the project plans to purchase CIGS thin film solar module production equipment and its complete solution to ensure that the project production equipment production and reach the agreed capacity and technical and economic indicators. This "the world's leading CIGS thin film solar module solutions plant" is likely that the German Manz AG.
Dieter Manz, founder and CEO of Manz AG, said that the company has a unique global development in the field of CIGS thin film solar technology, a wealth of production experience and authority of the German Baden-Wuerttemberg Solar Energy and Hydrogen Energy Research Center ZSW) support.
Currently, CIGS thin-film photovoltaic cells in the world's highest conversion efficiency maintained by the ZSW, the research center in June this year, the conversion efficiency to 22.6%, which is the fifth time ZSW refresh the record.
