Monocrystalline cell and module manufacturer Lerri Photovoltaic Technology (Lerri Solar), a subsidiary of major monocrystalline wafer producer Longi Silicon Materials has signed a strategic technology partnership with materials giant, 3M.

Monocrystalline cell and module manufacturer LERRI Photovoltaic Technology (Lerri Solar), a subsidiary of major monocrystalline wafer producer Longi Silicon Materials has signed a strategic technology partnership with materials giant, 3M. 

The agreement covers collaboration on 3M products designed for the assembly of PV modules, including glass anti-reflection coating, light guide film, insulating film, tape and other ancillary products. The partnership will also include marketing and market promotion by virtue of the brand influence of both sides in the PV industry. 

Zhong Baoshen, chairman of Xi'an LONGi Silicon Materials said: “We expect that Lerri and 3M will deepen and broaden the cooperation to forge an efficient monocrystalline PV industrial eco-chain, make use of the cluster-based strategic advantages to improve the solar industrial layout, provide more cost-effective products for society, create more revenue for customers, accelerate the progress of grid parity, and jointly promote the global development of clean energy.”

Last year, LERRI Solar entered into a strategic cooperation agreement with DuPont related to its solar cell and module products that included DuPont’s ‘Solamet’ metallisation pastes to boost solar cell conversion efficiencies. 

Lerri Solar has plans to expand solar cell capacity to 1.5GW in 2016, up from 500MW in 2015 and reach module capacity of 5GW, up from 1.5GW in 2015, according to Longi’s 2015 annual report. The company had module sales of 760MW in 2015.
