Midsummer Delivers DUO Machine To Russia
CIGS production machine will be installed in a factory in Saransk, about 630 km east of Moscow.
Swedish CIGS solar energy technology firm Midsummer has delivered a DUO machine to Russia. This is the first machine under a framework agreement between Midsummer and the Russian government-owned technology giant Rusnano Group.
The DUO system is one of the most widely spread manufacturing tools for flexible CIGS solar cells in the world, according to the company.
“The corona pandemic has made it impossible to travel to Sweden from the countries and regions where our machine customers are located. This has caused difficulties for us to make acceptance-tests and install our already sold DUO machines.
"Thanks to a new procedure, that makes it possible to make final approvals through video link instead of on location in Järfälla, we have now been able to perform the acceptance-test and ship the machine to Russia," said Sven Lindström, CEO, Midsummer”
The DUO machine will be installed in a factory in Saransk, about 630 km east of Moscow. The factory will be run by Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials Center of the Republic of Mordovia and their partner Solartek which promotes solutions for integrated solar roofs.
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
