It’s day one of the EU PVSEC exhibition, and although it’s too early in the four-day event to be concerned about sore feet, the fast pace of the morning’s to-ings and fro-ings has certainly shown that this year’s show is set to be a good one. Companies have turned out in their hundreds, and some of the booths and products on display are truly spectacular. Here are a few of the new products and technologies on display.
Singulus Technologies has chosen EU PVSEC to present its new Singular PECVD tool to the industry. Singular is a coating tool for the application of anti-reflective coatings on c-Si cells, taking inspiration from the static inline production process by allowing coating of complex layers (H2/L2/B11).
Delta Energy Systems has brought its latest product range to Valencia, including the Solivia solar inverters. The company’s central inverter product line, the Solivia CM Series, are smaller and more lightweight than other commercially available inverters, and employ country-specific software that is said to minimise warehousing and logistics costs (H2/L3/BA26).
Merck is presenting its latest materials developments including its new isishape printable etching pastes that are said to be capable of selectively etching antireflective coatings. The company is also displaying its lisicon organic semiconducting polymers and its livilux range of advanced organic charge transport materials for DSC and organic cells (H2/L2/A27).
RUV Systems is displaying its new crack detection unit, which can be seen at the company’s booth. Wafers and cells can be tested on the spot, and the company is inviting interested parties to demonstrate the effects of cracked or damaged wafers on cells’/wafers’ resonance peak patterns (H4/L3/C7).
We will be keeping you up to date with all the goings-on at the EU PVSEC show, so stay tuned!
