Abstract:
ENN Solar Energy announced that it has produced what it called China's first 5.7m2 high-efficiency, tandem junction thin film photovoltaic (PV) panels using a SunFab Thin Film Line, rated at 60 megawatts per year, supplied by Applied Materials.

ENN Reports Solar Panel Production with Thin Film Line

Langfang, China | Posted on March 21st, 2009

Working together at ENN's facility in Langfang, China, ENN and Applied achieved this milestone just five months after equipment installation. These ultra-large PV panels are nearly four times larger than conventional modules on the market and use Applied's tandem junction technology to deliver higher conversion efficiencies, according to the companies.

"By combining the high efficiency of tandem junction technology with ultra-large 5.7m2 substrates, we're able to deliver modules that dramatically reduce installed cost per watt," said Dr. Rick Wan, General Manager of ENN Solar. "Our close association with Applied Materials has enabled ENN to build a winning platform, combining our next-generation solar technology with our world-class manufacturing capability."

"We are committed to delivering the highest level of technology innovation and manufacturing excellence to our customers," said Dr. Randhir Thakur, senior vice president and general manager of Applied Materials' SunFab Thin Film Solar and Display Business Group. "ENN's rapid ramp from equipment installation to producing tandem junction panels is an example of the unique capabilities that Applied delivers - unparalleled research and development, technology and manufacturing innovation, and global service and support for our customers."
