Three Unidentified Chinese PERC Solar Cell Manufacturers Place Orders Worth More Than 10 GW Production Capacity With RENA Technologies In Last Three Months
(30. October 2019)
German solar PV production equipment manufacturer RENA Technologies GmbH has announced receiving its largest single PV order ever for its RENA InOxSide Fusion and RENA BatchTex XL with over 15 GW capacity from an unidentified tier 1 Asian customer.
The order value is worth ‘tens of millions of euros’. The Asian customer will use this technology from RENA in several plants for the next expansion level of PERC solar cell production.
RENA explains InOxSide Fusion technology as having a short acid process with an additional alkaline process step making it possible to use significantly less nitric acid that eventually leads to a reduction in production costs. As for its BatchTex XL machines, these will be used by the customer for solar wafers to help it optimize the cost framework.
“We are very proud to say that this order is the biggest that RENA has ever received. We are implementing extremely innovative technology which has been developed by our teams in Germany and China in record time,” said RENA CEO Peter Schneidewind.
The order from the Asian customer was placed in August 2020, followed by an intensive initial phase.
RENA’s Vice President Sales, Ulrich Jäger added, “The comparatively space-saving solution offers our customer enormous potential savings and sets new standards in wet chemical processing technology. The trend towards M12 wafers continues to grow and thanks to our machines, we are extremely well prepared for it.”
