Fokko Pentinga, CEO and President of Amtech said, “This latest order is another indication of the growing recognition in the solar industry of the outstanding performance of SoLayTec's spatial ALD system to improve the cost of ownership of our customers' PERC cell processes.”

SoLayTec had previously noted a number of new tool orders from a range of customers planning p-type PERC, n-type IBC and bi-facial solar cell production in 2016. Customers are located in China, Japan, Europe and Taiwan.

ALD is typically used to deposit a thin, uniform amorphous aluminum oxide (Al2O3) layer as the rear side passivation for PERC solar cells.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
