PV manufacturing equipment specialist, SCHMID Group has secured orders for three ‘Multi Busbar Connector’ (MBC) lines for the production of novel highly efficient PV modules from an unidentified customer in Asia that was said to be a ‘premium’ producer of both solar cells and modules.
MBC technology is designed to lay down 8 to 15 thin busbar wires, which reduce shadowing and reduces silver consumption and material costs as well. MBC can be used to interconnect both standard and high-efficiency solar cells, including bifacial.
SCHMID also noted that the order came from an existing customer. According to SCHMID, the three MBC lines would be delivered by the middle of next year.
