Midsummer receives new order for its DUO thin film solar cell manufacturing system
by Staff Writers
Stockholm, Sweden (SPX) Oct 12, 2016


The Midsummer DUO is a compact, fully automatic deposition system for CIGS solar cell manufacturing. It is designed for operational stability and superior material utilization.

Midsummer 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.

Midsummer has received a repeat order for its compact DUO thin film solar cell manufacturing system from an undisclosed Asian customer, this after the first machine surpassed the acceptance criteria for cell efficiency by over two percentage points at the customer's production site. Due to a strong demand for lightweight, flexible modules, the customer decided to buy yet another DUO manufacturing system, which will be delivered mid 2017.

"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 Lindstrom, 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 Midsummer DUO is a compact, fully automatic deposition system for CIGS solar cell manufacturing. It is designed for operational stability and superior material utilization.

Midsummer is a leading global provider of turnkey production lines for cost-effective manufacturing of flexible thin film CIGS (copper, indium, gallium and selenium) solar cells. Midsummer has developed a rapid process for the production of these solar cells using sputtering of all layers of the solar cell. This allows for scalable and cost-effective manufacturing of thin film solar cells. Midsummer's customers are manufacturers of thin-film solar cells worldwide.

Record for perovskite/CIGS tandem solar module
Karlsruher, Germany (SPX) Oct 10, 2016
Thin-film technologies can dramatically reduce the cost of next-generation solar modules. Whereas their production cost is low, it is in particular the combination of complementary absorber materials in a tandem solar module that increases the power conversion efficiency. At the PSCO international conference in Genova, researchers from KIT, ZSW, and the Belgian research institute imec pres ... read more
