Report by Chengdu TV station Chengdu TV
On February 25, the first session of the 17th People's Congress of Chengdu was held at Jinjiang Auditorium. During this period, Chengdu TV News Channel focused on the high-efficiency silicon cell project of Tongwei Solar in Chengdu, and interviewed Xie Yi, member of the Chengdu Municipal Political and Consultative Conference, and President of Tongwei Solar, on related content of urban development model transformation in the“Overall Planning of Chengdu(2016-2035) (submitted for review)”.
President Xie Yi interviewed by Chengdu TV station
In the interview, Mr.Xie Yi said that the introduction of the Overall Planning of Chengdu has strengthened the confidence of enterprises in investing and starting their own businesses in Chengdu. In 2017, Tongwei invested more than 10 billion yuan in Chengdu, and built a global advanced high-efficiency silicon cell project in Shuangliu District.It not only strengthens and consolidates China's intelligent manufacturing globally, but also conforms to the direction of the new development concept put forward by the Nineteenth National Congress of the CPC. It also brings new vigor and impetus to the development of Chengdu and the "southward expansion " plan of Chengdu, especially to the new economy development, and truly enabling enterprises to benefit the people and society.
Chengdu Business Daily
On February 27, Chengdu Business Daily published an exclusive interview on "Top Ten Innovative Entrepreneurs of Sichuan in 2017", focusing on the development of Tongwei Solar and the building of "Smart Factory" in half-page of the major news page.
It is pointed out that Tongwei Solar has rapidly developed from a new company with 100 employees into an industry leader with thousands of employees in just a few years, and has become one of the smart factories of high-efficiency silicon cells with the highest degree of automation and the largest production capacity in the world. In 2017, with only 4% of the world's cell market, the company's profits accounted for more than 80% of the cell industry. It will continue to maintain its first place in profit, market share,production index,and construction speed in the cell sector.
At present, Tongwei Solar Chengdu Base is still expanding its production capacity by a large margin, with an additional investment of 6 billion yuan. Based on unmanned intelligent manufacturing of high efficiency monocrystalline cells, TWS will mainly build intelligent plants, digital workshops, logistics warehouses and related supporting facilities. It aims to build the largest and most advanced Tongwei cell “intelligent plant”
Shuangliu television station
At the same time, Shuangliu TV Station, in the period of the two sessions, made a report of "world-class unmanned workshop, industry leader... See how incredible Shuangliu ‘intelligence’ is" and focused on the development of Tongwei solar.
The report introduces the current capacity scale and operating results of Tongwei Solar, and interviews Liu Zhixu, vice director of the Southwest Airport Economic Development Zone Management Committee. Liu said that the development of Tongwei Solar enables Shuangliu to rely on Tongwei Solar Project,to become cluster,integration,and ecology-oriented. In the future, the world's largest clean energy product manufacturing base and photovoltaic industry cluster will be built in Shuangliu led by the leading enterprises under the principle of strengthened cooperation and support.
It is reported that in recent years, Chengdu Shuangliu District has accelerated the synergy between emerging industries and traditional industries, actively fostered new advantages of the industrial ecosphere, and made every effort to build a production and city integrated "economic airport". At present, Shuangliu District is taking Tongwei solar as the core, actively cultivating energy storage and power cells, smart grid and other related industries, to achieve diversified development of new energy industry, to improve quality and efficiency.
Tongwei Solar is committed to building a world-class clean energy enterprise. From 2013 to 2018, the company has been calmly dealing with, not surprisingly, the ups and downs of the development of the photovoltaic industry.Respect the market, fear the market, keep up with the market, TWS has grown into one of the most profitable enterprises in the field of global cell segmentation. The third phase of Tongwei Solar Chengdu Base and the second phase of Hefei Base started in November last year. Now in the stage of civil construction, the overall project is progressing in an orderly manner.
In the next three to five years, with the completion of the projects in Chengdu and Hefei, the capacity of Tongwei solar cells will exceed 30 GW and the sales will exceed 30 billion yuan.According to the current market demand for solar cells, Tongwei solar cell market share will exceed 30%. Tongwei is achieving its strategic objective of creating a "world-class clean energy enterprise" step by step.
