Specialist PV manufacturing equipment supplier Singulus Technologies has received a new order for CIGS thin film processing tools from existing customer, China National Building Materials (CNBM).

Singulus said that the €50 million order was for a first stage of a 300MW capacity expansion at Bengbu Design and Research Institute of Glass Industry Co., in Xuzhou, Bengbu, China, a subsidiary of CNBM.

Dr.-Ing. Stefan Rinck, Chairman of the Board of Singulus Technologies said, “We are pleased about this order, which in turn shows our leading role in CIGS thin-film solar technology. Our customer CNBM is therefore continuing to expand CIGS technology in China as planned and is by far the largest manufacturer of CIGS solar modules. “
