Tata Power Solar, a member of Tata group, has announced expanding the capacity of its cell and module manufacturing facility in Bengaluru, the capital city of Karnataka.
It said in a statement: “The two-stage expansion doubled the company’s module capacity to 400 MW from 200 MW, and increased its cell manufacturing capacity by 65 per cent from 180 MW to 300 MW.”
According to the company’s chairman Anil Sardana, “We are happy to see our team responding to Government of India’s call of ‘Make in India’.
