Oerlikon Solar has received an Underwriters Laboratories Master Certificate for solar PV, and an expanded TÜV Rheinland IEC certification for a new 130Wp highly efficient module design. These new technology certifications help Oerlikon to provide lower cost, high quality and reliable products.
Oerlikon Solar’s recent research and development efforts have been focused on lowering its module manufacturing cost of thin-film silicon PV below US$0.70 per watt by the end of 2010.
“Oerlikon Solar is fully committed to help its customers meet fast-growing demand for solar PV,” said Jürg Henz, CEO of Oerlikon Solar. “We are not only reducing module manufacturing cost, but providing the fastest time-to-market with thin-film PV. The new certifications from UL and TÜV confirm that Oerlikon Solar meets highest quality and reliability standards worldwide.”
