Sunways has placed Rainer Lausen as the head of development activities for solar cells at the company’s wholly-owned subsidiary in Arnstadt, Thüringen. He will be taking over for Dr. Arnd Boueke who transferred to the Kostanz site. Jörg von Strom, member of the management board, will continue as managing director for Sunways Production.
Michael Wilhelm, chairman of the management board of Sunways said, “I would like to express my thanks to Dr. Boueke for his many years of successfully working on the development of the group’s Arnstadt plant and its solar cell production activities. I am pleased that, in the person of Mr. Lausen, we have found a very competent successor with substantial industry experience. I am convinced that Dr. Boueke and Mr. Lausen are outstanding experts who will further expand the technological leadership of Sunways in the solar cell production sector. I wish both of them every success in their new tasks.”
Lausen is a graduate engineer who began his career in the semi-conductor production of Philips. Most recently he was director of operations at Ersol Solar Energy and oversaw solar cell production.
