After ordering a 100 MW HJT production line from Meyer Burger in August 2019, Oxford PV has placed another partial order to expand the HJT line to an integrated 125 MW production line for high-efficiency perovskite HJT tandem cells. It is working to eventually expand the production of its industrial site in Brandenburg an der Havel in Eastern Germany (in the picture) to have 250 MW annual capacity by the end of 2020.

Key Takeaways

  • The majority stakeholder of Oxford PV, Meyer Burger has received partial order for expansion of the former’s HJT key equipment deal
  • Oxford PV has placed an order worth CHF 18 million for expansion of 100 MW HJT production equipment to 125 MW production line for high-efficiency perovskite HJT tandem cells
  • Order also includes development work on both line and process integration

Swiss solar PV equipment manufacturer Meyer Burger Technology AG has received a partial order worth CHF 18 million ($18.2 million) from its strategic partner Oxford PV for expansion of the previously ordered heterojunction (HJT) key equipment into an integrated 125 MW production line for high-efficiency perovskite HJT tandem cells.

Meyer Burger further shared that the order comprises development work on both line and process integration. The Swiss company is the majority shareholder in Oxford PV with a 18.8% stake.

This is an addition to the previous order from Oxford PV for a 100 MW HJT production line worth CHF 20 million placed in August 2019 including an upgrade to perovskite-on-HJT tandem technology (see Meyer Burger Gets CHF 20Mn Order From Oxford PV).

The partners are looking at expanding the production capacity for tandem solar cells to 250 MW by the end of 2020 with the overarching goal to achieve cell efficiencies of over 30% with the industrialization of tandem technology. Oxford PV has so far reported 28% power conversion efficiency for perovskite-silicon tandem solar cell (see 28% Efficiency For Oxford PV Perovskite Cell).
