Leading PV manufacturing equipment supplier Meyer Burger Technology has signed an initial order with an unidentified customer that plans a fully-integrated 200MW heterojunction production plant with expectations to reach 1GW of nameplate capacity by 2021.

Meyer Burger said that the initial order was valued at around US$74 million (€67 million) with prepayment expected to be received during the first quarter of 2017.

Based on the prepayment in the first quarter of 2017, Meyer Burger said that the tools would be delivered in the third quarter of 2017, while production ramp would be expected by the first quarter 2018.

The customer prepayment for this contract is expected to be received during the first quarter 2017. The order will be reflected in the incoming orders, once the prepayment has taken place. Delivery of the contract equipment is expected as of the third quarter of 2017. The customer plans to start production by the first quarter 2018.

Meyer Burger also noted that the customer planned to achieve a total production capacity of about 1GW in the next 5 years, indicating that the 1GW nameplate capacity would be reached in 2021.

The initial order includes Meyer Burger’s diamond wire cutting systems for monocrystalline wafering, heterojunction (HJT) solar cell coating technology and its ‘SmartWire’ connection technology. 

The order also includes software for production control (MES) along the entire PV value chain as well as the on-site training of process operators to ensure the production of high-efficiency solar modules.
