Leading renewable energy firm ReNew Power has decided to set up its manufacturing unit at the Dholera Special Industrial Region (DSIR), about 100 km away from Ahmedabad (Gujarat) .
They plan to manufacture both solar cells and modules in the Dholera manufacturing facility with the goal of creating a globally competitive manufacturing unit.
According to ReNew Power, the greenfield plant will produce 2 GW of solar cells and modules annually using state-of-the-art monocrystalline PERC (Passivated Emitter & Rear Contact) and large wafer technology.
The new project has been given 100 acres of land by the Gujarat government, assuring adequate availability of land for future capacity expansion.
The manufacturing of solar cells and modules and plant operations are expected to begin from the fiscal year 2023 (FY23). The manufacturing capacity being set up will incorporate ReNew Power’s sustainability initiatives and ensure decarbonization of manufacturing processes and supply chain to create a ‘Green Factory’ of the future, as per the company’s claims.
The manufacturing plant is expected to generate 2500 jobs in the state.
The Dholera manufacturing plant will sell components to other renewable energy companies in India, apart from supplying to ReNew Power’s own utility-scale power generation business. This will directly promote the Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan of the country.
