Updated: Leading PV manufacturing equipment supplier Meyer Burger Technology has received a further CHF 18 million (US$18.2 million) from partner, Oxford PV for the purchase of key equipment for a 125MW integrated production line to fabricate high-efficiency perovskite HJT tandem solar cells.
Meyer Burger also noted that the strategic partnership with Oxford PV would lead to the volume production of perovskite heterojunction tandem solar cells with over 30% conversion efficiencies.
The equipment supplier had received the first order from Oxford PV, worth CHF 20 million, in August 2019. The production capacity at Oxford PV’s plant in Germany is set to be expanded to 250MW of nameplate capacity by the end of 2020.
