300W-Module with SCHMID PERC-Turnkey

21% efficiency with monocrystalline cells / Savings in the two-digit million Euro range during ramp-up

(PresseBox) (Freudenstadt, Germany, ) In less than one year the SCHMID Group has increased the efficiency for its turnkey production of monocrystalline PERC cells from 20 to 21%. The reasons are backside passivation progress, the multi-busbar cell architecture and the silver-free rear side with TinPad. "We exceed the 300W mark for 60-cell modules," explains Dr. Christian Buchner, Head of the Business Unit PV at SCHMID. "With our innovative technologies PV manufacturers can supply the attractive market for high-efficiency cells".

Cost effectiveness from the very beginning

Perfectly harmonized processes and systems as well as SCHMID's longstanding turnkey experience guarantees the rapid production readiness and, according to Mr. Buchner, economic benefits that may reach the double-digit million Euro range. Stable processes in a very short time allow high efficiencies with minimal waste. The first revenues can already be achieved during the ramp-up phase with cells ready for sale.

SCHMID welcomes visitors at the SNEC in Shanghai (E3-360) from May 20 to May 22, as well as at the Intersolar Europe in Munich (A3-490) from June 4 to June 6.
