Air Liquide says it recently signed 13 new contracts with crystalline-silicon solar cell manufacturers in China – notably JA Solar and Yingli Green Energy – to supply carrier and specialty gases.
JA Solar and Yingli have a combined production capacity of 1,400 MW. Air Liquide is supplying gases to JA Solar's solar cell production fabs in the Jiangsu and Hebei provinces, as well as Yingli's solar cell and polysilicon facilities in the Baoding Photovoltaic Park, located in the Hebei province.
Air Liquide was also awarded new long-term contracts for Jinko Solar, Sunflower and DelSolar, as well as eight other new c-Si fabs.
