All that a spokesperson for the Swiss company would reveal to pv magazine is that the order is in the "double digit million area and consists of various KAI (PECVD) systems".
According to a statement released, the equipment, which operates the process of coating thin film silicon, will be utilized as the core absorber technology for Dong Xu's initial thin film silicon production line.
The KAI is an automated PECVD (plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition) system for the mass production of 1.4 meter square solar modules. Oerlikon explains that it has been designed for the deposition of amorphous and microcrystalline photovoltaic absorption layers.
Commenting, CEO Helmut Frankenberger said: "Both parties have thus laid the grounds for a promising partnership for the planned future expansion of the customer's manufacturing capacity of thin film silicon solar modules."
