Midsummer receives repeat Asian order
Midsummer, a Swedish a provider of production lines for making flexible CIGS solar cells, has received a repeat order for its compact DUO solar cell manufacturing system from an undisclosed Asian customer.
This new order was received in connection with Midsummer's first system at the customer going into production with an efficiency of the solar cells of over 15 percent, which was 2 percentage points higher than the promised specification.
"This fantastic success by our engineers is another proof that Midsummer AB and Swedish technology is at the forefront of the race towards a fossil free planet. The DUO system is now the most widely spread manufacturing tool for flexible CIGS solar cells. We have yet again shown that we are the leading provider of turnkey production lines of flexible thin film CIGS", said Sven Lindström, CEO, Midsummer AB.
The system will be used for manufacturing of lightweight flexible panels to cater the growing needs for portable panels and roof top installations.
The DUO is a compact, fully automatic deposition system for CIGS solar cell manufacturing, based on Midsummer's production process which uses sputtering of all layers of the solar cell.
