An existing customer of Meyer Burger based in Asia has placed orders with the company worth CHF 15 million (US$16.8 million). The delivery is expected to be completed in the first quarter 2014.
Said to be equipment related to solar wafer, cell, module and measuring equipment, Mayer Burger noted that the order was related to an evolutionary upgrade of both equipment and technologies, which were part of an overall productivity improvement programme.
Upgrades included advanced cutting equipment and automated cell coating technology to high capacity module interconnection and testing equipment, according to the company.
The company had also just announced its first order for its ‘PiXDRO JETx’ ink jet printing technology from a US-based customer’s production facility in Malaysia.
The company noted that it was experiencing a recovery in PV equipment orders as the PV market continues to expand while overcapacity eases.
