Tata Power Solar expands manufacturing capacity by 60 per cent

Tata Power Solar has announced a 60 per cent expansion of its manufacturing facility in Bangalore, taking the total production capacity to 200 MW. 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 such as Domestic Content Requirement and anti-dumping duties.
Tata Power Solar is one of the few companies globally to have a long operating history of 25 years. It  claims to be the only company in India whose modules are rated as Tier 1 in Bankability by GTM Research, a globally recognised PV market research firm. The expansion comes against the backdrop of extremely difficult times for the Indian solar industry. Despite challenges, Tata Power Solar has seen an increase in demand for its products which reaffirms the faith customers put in the quality of its products, it said.
Ajay Goel, CEO, Tata Power Solar said, “This substantial expansion, in an extremely competitive and price-sensitive sector, is a testimony to our products’ superior quality and global competitiveness. Our 25 years of strong credentials in providing high quality solar products, which also corresponds to the warranty period of our modules, adds credibility to our offerings.”
Tata Power Solar initiated its manufacturing expansion in 2001 by laying the foundation stone on a 10 acre facility at Bangalore. Currently, the company operates three world-class manufacturing units in Bangalore, including module, cell and solar water heaters.
