centrotherm photovoltaics has concluded the ramp-up of two crystalline solar cell manufacturing lines at LG Electronics, which enters the photovoltaics manufacturing industry with one line for mono-crystalline and one line for multi-crystalline solar cells.
“With the first two lines, we have succeeded in entering mass solar cell production within the shortest possible time span,” said Mr. Cho, vice president at LG Electronics. “The aim is to rapidly expand capacity further in order to participate in the sector’s growth, and to develop into one of the leading solar cells suppliers.”
“Together with LG Electronics, we have successfully implemented a demanding project plan, and, thanks to our customer’s organizational strength, we have even achieved our targets ahead of schedule,” said Robert M. Hartung, CEO of centrotherm photovoltaics. “We are delighted that, with LG Electronics, we have been able to help an additional major company to enter the photovoltaics market.”
centrotherm photovoltaics will manage its customer relationship with LG Electronics from its Korean branch, established in 2009.
