A new partnership has been formed that will offer self-aligned cell technology from 1366 Technologies via RENA’s wet processing technology. 1366’s proprietary honeycomb-structured texture to the cell production process is claimed to boost cell efficiency. The texture can be used on both mono-crystalline and multi-crystalline wafers.
“Integrating 1366 Technologies into our existing process clusters will provide customers with higher-performing cells,” said Hartmut Nussbaumer, Managing Director of RENA. RENA’s current product line includes the market-leading InTex wet processing system for texturing wafers.
“RENA is one of the leading PV technology companies in the world. This partnership validates the effectiveness of our Self-Aligned Cell technology, opens up new sales channels for us and dramatically compresses our time to market,” said Frank van Mierlo, President of 1366 Technologies.
