As the world’s largest solar panel manufacturer, we have production facilities throughout China, including in Baoding, Haikou, Tianjin, and Hengshui. Our manufacturing process is defined by world-class technology, high quality workmanship, and an expansive global supply chain. We utilize industry-leading equipment from Europe, the U.S. and Japan, employ hundreds of thousands of workers both upstream and downstream in the industry, and stand behind our commitment to quality.
In addition to our main manufacturing campus at the Company’s headquarters in Baoding, located in China’s Hebei Province, we also operate the following:
Hainan Manufacturing Campus
Hainan Yingli New Energy Resources Co., Ltd was founded in September 2009 in order to expand our manufacturing capabilities. In July 2010, Hainan Yingli completed construction of its Phase 1 manufacturing facility, located in Haikou City, in the Hainan Province of China. With an annual production capacity of 400 MW, the facility covers the entire PV value chain from ingot casting and wafering, to solar cell production and module assembly.
Tianjin Manufacturing Facility
Yingli Green Energy founded Tianjin Yingli New Energy Resources Co., Ltd. in March, 2011 in Binhai Technology Park, located in the High-Tech Zone of Tianjin. The facility covers ingot casting, wafering, solar cell, module assembly and application system. Currently, the total production capacity is 300 MW.
Hengshui Manufacturing Facility
Hengshui Yingli New Energy Resources Co., Ltd. is located in Hengshui Economic Development Zone, Hebei Province of China. Currently, the total capacity is 150 MW. The facility covers ingot casting and wafering, to solar cell production and module assembly.
Fine Silicon Facility
Fine Silicon Co., Ltd., our in-house polysilicon plant, began commercial production of high-quality solar-grade and electronic-grade polysilicon in August 2010. The Baoding-based factory’s advanced monosilane-based technology and closed-loop manufacturing process enable significant energy savings and a low environmental impact compared with traditional tricholorosilane (TCS)-based polysilicon technology. Fine Silicon Co., Ltd. currently has a designed annual production capacity of 3,000 MT.
We are one of the world’s largest companies manufacturing silicon solar modules along the entire PV value chain, from polysilicon to module assembly. Fully automated production of ingots, wafers, solar cells and modules ensures tight control of our material and production quality, while providing us with significant cost advantage. Further, central production eliminates the environmental costs of transportation, breakage, and packaging.
Benefits of vertical integration include:
- Strict quality control measures at all stages of the manufacturing process
- Elimination of redundancies
- Reduced carbon emissions
- Continuous process and cost optimization along the PV value chain
Research & Development Labs
PV Testing Lab (PVTL), San Francisco
To support our quickly growing U.S. presence, Yingli Americas opened a research and development (R&D) facility in South San Francisco in 2011. The R&D lab will be used for comprehensive product testing and will allow Yingli Solar to more quickly evaluate new technologies, deliver next generation products, and better serve customers throughout all stages of a project’s lifecycle.
Yingli Solar Photovoltaic Research, Development, and After-Sales Center, Madrid
In October 2011, Yingli Green Energy opened the photovoltaic industry’s largest R&D and after-sales service center, which is located in Madrid, Spain. As the only solar PV manufacturer to establish its own comprehensive product evaluation, testing, and service facility in Europe, Yingli Green Energy delivers enhanced client service to European customers through every stage of the project lifecycle.
