Midsummer receives order for two DUO CIGS solar cell manufacturing systems
Midsummer AB of Järfälla, near Stockholm, Sweden – a provider of turnkey production lines for manufacturing flexible, lightweight copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic (PV) solar cells – has received a repeat order from an undisclosed customer for two compact DUO thin-film solar cell manufacturing systems (for delivery by the end of 2017) as a result of strong demand for lightweight, flexible modules.
Designed for operational stability and superior material utilization, the compact, fully automatic DUO deposition system is used for manufacturing lightweight flexible CIGS solar panels to cater for the growing demand for portable panels and roof-top installations.
“Our DUO system is now the most widely spread manufacturing tool for flexible CIGS solar cells in the world,” claims CEO Sven Lindström.
