Midsummer hires new head of module R&D

To further strengthen its team, Midsummer AB of Järfälla, near Stockholm, Sweden – a provider of turnkey production lines as well as flexible, lightweight copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film solar panels for building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) – has hired Klaus Wiegel as a new head of module R&D (from 1 March), responsible for the development of next-generation flexible solar panels.

The firm says that it is experiencing greater global interest in its flexible solar panels (especially in the USA, where demand for new types of flexible solar cells is increasing), so it is currently expanding its in-house production of solar cells and flexible panels.

Wiegel has a background as research & production manager at Gällivare PhotoVoltaic (GPV) and most recently was research engineer and former production manager at Swedish mining giant LKAB. He also has a Master of Science (MSc) in Physics from Germany’s Technical University of Dresden.

“Wiegel, with his extensive experience from both research and production of solar modules, will be a good addition as we intend to turn up our production rate further to meet the increased demand for our products,” says CEO Sven Lindström.

Midsummer claims that its DUO system is the world’s most widespread manufacturing tool for flexible thin-film solar cells.
