SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES has received an order from one of the largest Japanese photovoltaics manufacturers, for the delivery of a production machine for high-performance heterojunction (HJT) solar cells.
The signed contract includes processing equipment of the SILEX II type for the wet-chemical treatment of heterojunction solar cells.
The SILEX II with various processing baths uses an optimized zone-based cleaning step, the merits of which are short process times, versatility and ease of handling, along with very attractive low usage of chemicals.
This process step plays a vital part in improving solar cell efficiency and cutting production costs.
Compared to traditional wet tools with RCA cleaning, the SILEX II including ozone technology enables producers of solar cells to implement a substantially more cost-efficient and environmental-friendly production step.
SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES sold more than 35 SILEX II systems for HJT cell production to customers in the USA, Asia including China and Europe in the last years and provides fully automated dry-in/dry-out solutions for wet-chemical treatment of silicon wafers in standard and high-efficiency cell lines.
The company stated that “Our customer already achieved a high conversion efficiency for HJT cells of more than 26 % and intends to transfer this result into mass production choosing the best available production equipment on the market provided by SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES. We are very pleased to have received this order from the leading solar manufacturer for our SILEX II wet processing machine.”
