Anwell Technologies has produced its first a-Si thin-film solar panel at its 40MW solar plant in Henan, China using in-house technology.

“When Premier Wen Jiabao visited us in July 2008 and tasked us to address China’s need for power saving and next generation energy infrastructure, we knew we couldn’t let China down. True to our ethos of making the impossible possible, we have produced our first a-Si thin-film solar panel,” said Franky Fan, the Chairman & CEO.

The equipment used was built from scratch using Anwell’s proprietary technologies for the key production processes of a-Si thin-film solar panel including Plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD), sputtering, laser scribe and transportation system. Using in-house technology will enable the group to have a cost-saving advantage through its vertically integrated model over other solar panel producers who have to import their own equipment.

Anwell’s PECVD system is the world’s first multi-substrate-multi-chamber deposition tool boasting higher productivity and lower manufacturing cost for 1.1 by 1.4m a-Si thin-film solar panel with its unique and innovative batch and cluster design.

The next step for the group is to optomize the production process for mass production. Concurrently Anwell has began R&D on new equipment that will increase their production capacity to 120MW by the end of 2010.

The demand for rooftop solar PV is soaring, driven by falling costs of the technology against energy crises that are gripping countries globally. But while an increasing number of households turn to solar to generate their own electricity, there is now a need for more specialist equipment, technologies and services to ensure the solar transition can reach as many customers as possible. Delivering these is now a major challenge for rooftop solar installers. This webinar will analyse the characteristics of the rooftop solar market, discussing how the products, logistics, installation and servicing of solar systems has evolved in line with consumer demands.
