Midsummer Receives Order for Its DUO Thin Film Solar Cell Manufacturing System in Asia

Midsummer has received an order from an undisclosed Asian customer, for a compact DUO solar cell manufacturing system, to be deliveredin August 2017.

Midsummer explains that the system will be used for manufacturing of lightweight flexible panels to cater the growing needs for portable panels and roof-top installations.

“This order makes Midsummer’s DUO the most widely distributed CIGS technology worldwide and confirms our leading position. Our new results showing solar modules with over 14 per cent conversion efficiency has led to increased demand for our manufacturing systems,” said Sven Lindström, CEO, Midsummer AB.

According to Midsummer its DUO is a compact, fully automatic deposition system for CIGS solar cell manufacturing. It is designed for operational stability and superior material utilisation.

“Midsummer’s DUO is the only turn-key line that can generate profit for customers, thanks to our unique technology. It produces in a segment where profitability is extremely good and the demand far exceeds supply. With Midsummer’s solar cells, which are the same size as silicon solar cells, you can use existing module equipment for the production of thin film modules that are exempt of customs duties into the USA and other markets,” Lindström concluded.
