Oerlikon Solar has received an order from leading Chinese photoelectric glass manufacturer Dong Xu for its KAI thin film silicon coating equipment. The fully-automated KAI PECVD system will form the central part of Dong Xu’s new thin film silicon production line.
Designed for the deposition of amorphous and microcrystalline photovoltaic absorption layers, the KAI system will mass produce large modules with the help of its Plasma Box technology. Dong Xu’s order will not only help improve its manufacturing yield and efficiency but also help increase Oerlikon’s presence within China.
“Both parties have thus laid the grounds for a promising partnership for the planned future expansion of the customer's manufacturing capacity of thin film silicon solar modules,” said Oerlikon’s CEO, Helmut Frankenberger.
