SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES Receives New Order for Thin-Film Solar Technology
February 17, 2012
  • SINGULUS establishes itself as a development partner for new thin-film cell concepts
  • Order from international module producer received

Kahl am Main, February 17, 2012 – The SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG (SINGULUS) reports the sale of a processing machine for the production of CIGS/CIS thin-film solar cells. The coating plant was ordered by an international thin-film solar manufacturer and will be utilized for the set-up of a pilot production of CIGS/CIS modules. After the successful commissioning a further expansion of the module production is intended. Hence, the SINGULUS system meets the current demand in the photovoltaics industry for development and pilot machines to increase the efficiency of solar cells and to simultaneously reduce the production costs. The CIGS production process, which continues to establish itself more and more and which is based on a semi-conductor layer composed of copper, indium, gallium, sulfur, and selenium (CIGS), is regarded as a promising PV technology with respect to efficiency and cost reductions.

The new order is an additional important step for SINGULUS to establish itself as a machine supplier and development partner in the growing thin-film solar market.

SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES continues to expand its activities in the segments Solar and Optical Disc. The goal is to attain a leading position in the silicon and thin-film solar technology as a machine supplier as well as a development partner for new cell concepts and to further extend the market leadership in the Optical Disc segment for dual layer Blu-ray disc production systems. The business activities in the work area nano-technology were extensively strengthened in the course of the growing market for MRAM semiconductor technology. In addition, the company reviews other sectors and work areas, where new market segments can be developed on the basis of the present know-how in the area of vacuum coating.
