March 12 (Renewables Now) - China’s Jiangsu Seraphim Solar System Co Ltd expects to begin commercial operations at a new 1-GW half-cell photovoltaic (PV) modules factory in early May 2019, it said on Tuesday.

The new production facility was built at a site in northern China's Shanxi province in cooperation with Shanxi Lu'An Photovoltaics Technology Co Ltd, a unit of the state-owned Lu'an Group. It will be used for the production of standard half-cell, dual-glass half-cell and bifacial half-cell modules.

Seraphim says that its bifacial products can generate up to 25% more electricity than standard modules through the use of a double layer of glass combined with advanced two-sided PV cells.

To date, over 6 GW of Seraphim’s products have been installed across more than 40 countries around the world.
