  • Construction of solar module production facility in Georgia will commence in 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in 2019
  • Hanwha Q CELLS aims to maintain leading market position in the U.S. by delivering high quality solar modules through local U.S. production

[May 30, 2018] Hanwha Q CELLS Korea Corporation is building a solar module manufacturing facility in the US. Construction for the factory in Whitfield County, Georgia will commence in 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in 2019. Its capacity will exceed 1.6 GW per year. The high quality modules manufactured by Hanwha Q CELLS Korea in the U.S. will be provided to Hanwha Q CELLS, which will have access to 100% of the facility’s production volume.

Maintaining a leading market position in the US

With the completion of the production facility in Georgia, Hanwha Q CELLS Korea, together with Hanwha Q CELLS, another affiliate of Hanwha Group, will have manufacturing facilities in South Korea, Malaysia, China, and the U.S., at its disposal. The new manufacturing fab is testament to Hanwha Q CELLS Korea’s commitment to the U.S. market, in spite of the recently imposed trade barriers.

According to Solar Power Europe, the U.S. was the second largest solar market in 2017. Furthermore, the U.S market is also one of the most important markets for Hanwha Q CELLS Korea. Upon commencement of manufacturing activities in the U.S. fab, Hanwha Q CELLS Korea will supply high quality PERC modules to the roof-top and ground-mounted segments in the U.S. As the U.S. market has traditionally been a market that valued performance and quality, the new plant is expected to enable Hanwha Q CELLS Korea to widen its customer base in the U.S.
