EU PVSEC: AEG Power Solutions reveals new Thyrobox PI power system in Valencia


During the 25th EU PVSEC, AEG Power Solutions unveiled for the first time its new Thyrobox PI power system, which AEG claims will set new efficiency standards in polysilicon production. The Thyrobox PI allows manufacturers of polysilicon to increase the production output of their existing polysilicon reactors by 10% to 20%, consequently increasing the level of efficiency, depending on reactor configuration and process condition.

“AEG Power Solutions has been leading in power control development for many years now. As a result we have a very clear picture of what really helps our clients to lower their production costs and improve manufacturing process,” said Gladwyn De Vidts, AEG Power Solutions’ VP and general manager of power control systems. “We strongly believe the Thyrobox PI marks a technological breakthrough with regards to optimized polysilicon production efficiency.”

As well as presenting the Thyrobox PI in Valencia, AEG has also announced its partnership with GT Solar for the supply of the product as part of a turnkey solution using GTSolar’s SDR series of CVD reactors. This next generation power system is designed to be integrated with GT’s SDR-400 to enable reactor capacities over 500 MTA.

“GT Solar is pleased to be working with AEG in bringing this new and exciting technology to market,” said Dave Keck, VP and general manager of GT Solar’s polysilicon division. “AEG PS’ vision is consistent with GT Solar’s vision of delivering sustained value to customers by lowering the cost of PV manufacturing.”

AEG Power Solutions is exhibiting on Level 3, Hall 4, Booth B1.
