In a multimillion euro deal with an unnamed German solar cell manufacturer, Lotus Systems has sold its wet chemical process lines, designed to increase throughput and reduce cost. Lotus Systems also announced that further to the purchase, an agreement for future cooperation was signed with a potential product order of €8 million. The first process line will be installed at the customer’s site in January 2010.
“We have incorporated new details everywhere – in input and output stations, cleaning, etching and drying,” commented Lotus Systems’ New Products Manager Hans Hauger. “All together, this makes for extremely high productivity and conserves substances like water, electricity, and chemicals.”
