- Indeotec has delivered and installed its 2 orders for Octopus-2 PECVD production equipment
- The orders were for 2 news customers of Indeotech, HZB of Germany and SPIC of China
- The Octopus-2 platform by Indeotec comprises both classic PECVD technology and its proprietary PECVD Mirror technology that enable double side deposition of a substrate in a single vacuum sequence
Switzerland based heterojunction (HJT) production equipment supplier Indeotech SA has completed the delivery of 2 orders, one each in Germany and China. The 2 customers are identified as German research center Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB), and Chinese electricity generator and cell/module maker, State Power Investment Corporation Limited (SPIC).
The order delivery was for Indeotec’s Octopus-2 machines comprising both classic PECVD technology as well as the latest version of the proprietary PECVD Mirror technology.
Assembling task for the machines was completed during Q2/2020. The equipment was delivered and installed at the customers’ sites, the company shared and added that the factory acceptance tests and baseline recipes transfer for HJT passivation with intrinsic and doped a-Si:H have been completed.
Explaining its Mirror technology for Octopus-2 platform, the team says it allows double side deposition of a substrate in a single vacuum sequence without flipping and manipulations ‘therefore significantly increasing the throughput of the machine’.
“Our Mirror technology is gaining a certain momentum in the HJT and Perovskite Tandem solar cells activities and initiatives globally. These orders confirm the trust of our customers in our leading expertise in the PECVD domain,” said Dr. Omid Shojaei, CEO of Indeotec. “We are very proud to have HZB as a new customer and collaboration partner, as well as entering the Chinese market with SPIC.”
Indeotec describes its Octopus-2 platform as offering a modular and fully automated pilot-scale cluster system for the deposition of various singular or multiple stacks of sophisticated thin films through either PECVD or PVD.
