Advanced Energy Industries received a high-volume follow-on order from centrotherm photovoltaics for their PEII Series Power Supply platform. The two companies are familiar working with each other as Advanced Energy has been supplying its power supply systems to centrotherm for its silicon crystalline solar manufacturing systems since 2005. The shipments from the new US$20 million order will be ongoing and extend throughout 2011.
Dr. Hans Betz, chief executive officer of Advanced Energy, commented, “Our relationship with centrotherm photovoltaics has been a strong partnership for many years. This additional order points to their continued confidence in our market-leading technology platform and global support capabilities. Our innovative PEII Series product line enables customers to improve efficiencies and cost-effectiveness – for maximum throughput quality – making it an invaluable addition to a high volume manufacturing environment.” He continued, “Our customer base continues to grow in the region, and we expect to benefit from continued market expansion with our leading and innovative products.”
