GS Hong Kong Solar Opens CIGS Plant In China

The new manufacturing facility has a phase one, full-production capacity of 40 MW per year
GS Hong Kong Solar, a maker of thin-film CIGS solar cells, has officially opened its new 150,000 square foot manufacturing plant.

The plant has a phase one, full-production capacity of 40 megawatts (MW) per year. GS Solar notes that it is simultaneously breaking ground on a 750 KW CIGS solar fields (one of the world’s largest), and is commissioning a 35 MW plant in China to open in autumn 2014.

GS Hong Kong Solar has expanded from its former 40,000 square foot. factory to the new 100,000 square foot facility and is beginning construction of its 34,000 square foot factory in Berlin, Germany.

The company says that the addition of the two new facilities will increase its annual capacity from 5 MW to 70 MW. GS Solar plans an additional 100 MW into production at the end of 2009, bringing its total annual capacity to 175 MW.

Naseer Sayed, Managing Director, comments, "Production from this facility will help satisfy the strong demand for solar product across the world, while providing local residents already a government city, with jobs in a rapidly-growing, high-tech industry. The addition Global Solar plant will help meet the 2015 goal of the government Initiative of achieving solar electricity cost competitiveness with grid electricity, especially through the use of flexible CIGS thin-film technologies in building-integrated applications."

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 Track!

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.
