  • Meyer Burger SmartWire Connection Technology lowers PV products costs and boosts system energy yield

    11 February 2013, 10:11

    Meyer Burger’s (SIX Swiss Exchange: MBTN) patented SmartWire Connection Technology (SWCT) for solar cells achieves higher efficiency solar modules and reduces production costs in PV manufacturing. Solar cells are electrically connected using thin copper wires on both sides of the cell thereby replacing the classic 2 to 3 busbars. Typically, 30 very fine copper wires are used for cell connection generating up to 2,000 contact points per cell.

  • Intersolar Europe 2012: Huber+Suhner presents two new junction boxes

    At Intersolar 2012 in Munich, Huber+Suhner presents two new junction boxes: a new process and cost-optimised box and the modular connection system.

  • Huber+Suhner expands junction box range

    15 January 2013, 14:13

    Huber+Suhner is launching a new junction box, the RADOX SOLAR Box HS3, optimised for the technical and commercial demands of the market.

  • Energaia 2012 – Huber+Suhner presents the new modular junction box with integrated safety feature

    14 January 2013, 18:15

    In collaboration with Mersen, Huber+Suhner is developing a safety system for the prevention of fires in PV installations. A smart junction box is part of the system. It is based on the RADOX® SolarBox HM0 by Huber+Suhner. Mersen is presenting this jointly developed solution at Energaia 2012 in Montpellier.

  • Winaico: Taiwan in the fast lane

    14 January 2013, 11:10

    Often Taiwan, Korea, Japan and other Asian countries are thrown into one big pot with China. In terms of PV module production there are vast differences between Taiwan and China. While China always set its focus on the mass production of consumer goods, whereas Taiwan concentrated on the production of electronic components and the improvement of its production processes. These differences in approach led to extremely high demand from China for Taiwanese experts. WINAICO asserts its position in a difficult market environment and looks back satisfied with its achievements in the last year.

  • Thanks to new machines commissioned at the Kuppenheim facility in Germany, KREMPEL doubled its production capacity in 2009.

    KREMPEL: A reliable partner for solar module manufacturers. Now & in the future

    07 December 2012, 12:40

    First boom and then what? Many solar module manufacturers have reached a crossroads: given the enormous pressure of competition today, they are now faced with the need to enhance their efficiency substantially. This can only be done with innovative and flexible partners such as the KREMPEL-GROUP that can be relied on over the long term. The Group’s credo: “We believe in the future of photovoltaics”. The crisis-resistant group of companies has been living up to this affirmation for many years: with targeted investment, a global presence, reliable solar materials and flexible prices for its products.

  • Meyer Burger achieves record 303 watt solar module in production conditions

    25 October 2012, 10:21

    At 303 watts, Meyer Burger has set a new photovoltaic record using a standard 60-cell solar module. A high level of process integration between the wafer, cell and module technologies made this developmental leap possible which will result significant reductions in production costs. The increased energy yield was achieved through the combination of innovative heterojunction cells with 21% efficiency and a very low temperature coefficient and with the revolutionary “SmartWire Connection” technology. The SGS Fresenius Institute has already IEC certified heterojunction modules with this new connection technology.
