The production equipment will be part of a manufacturing capacity expansion at the solar cell producer’s facilities in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany.
Conergy is investing around €5 million into the equipment, provided by Manz Automation, and the expansion.
"Our factory in Frankfurt (Oder) is one of the most modern solar factories of the world. But we don't want to rest on our laurels. That's why we are already looking ahead to the technologies of tomorrow – and using them in our production facilities. That way, we increase our cell efficiency, minimise scrap and increase output. A genuine technological leap for us," says Mathias Kamolz, Factory Manager and Technical Director of the solar factory.
