PV screen printing equipment supplier ASM Alternative Energy (ASM AE) said it had secured a repeat order from China-based PV manufacturer Risen Energy.

ASM AE noted that the order was for its ‘Eclipse’ metallisation tool as part of a solar cell capacity expansion at Risen Energy’s Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, China headquarters. 

Brian Lau, ASM AE's VP of business development, said: “The collaboration between ASM AE and Risen continues to produce successful results. Risen has high expectations for ASM AE’s platforms, with exceptional throughput capability and extreme accuracy as priorities. Customers like this only serve to make our team and our products better, and our long partnership with Risen is evidence of ASM AE’s ability to consistently deliver on their tough requirements.”

Risen Energy placed a 950MW automated module assembly line order with Suzhou Horad New Energy Equipment Co last November and said it planned to take capacity of solar cells and modules to 2.5GW based on strong module shipment growth in 2015.

Zhu Yu, Risen Energy's equipment manager added: “Our engineers have utilised ASM AE’s state-of-the-art Suzhou Technology Center for training and process development, which is an invaluable resource for our team. Ultimately, we must make the most highly efficient and reliable solar cells and ASM AE’s products and people help us achieve our production goals.”
