M10 to supply 300 MW stringers to Emmvee

Share

The global expansion in PV manufacturing continues to deliver orders to European production equipment suppliers, to both established suppliers and new companies. After entering the market on 12 months ago, Germany’s M10 Industries has announced the supply of two Kubus MTS 5000 stringers.

India’s Emmvee Photovoltaic Power placed the order, with the machines delivering 300 MW of module production annually.

“The order from India has now been placed merely twelve months after the first prototype kicked off with production in our subsidiary SI Module in Germany,” said M10 co-founder Gregor Reddemann in a statement. SI Module is M10’s module assembly subsidiary. M10 unveiled its SI-Enduro Curved module at the 2015 Intersolar Europe trade show, demonstrating the Kubus’ flexibility in terms of module forms.

M10 claims that its Kubus platform is able to string and solder three times as many modules as rival equipment. It can produce modules in 3, 4 or 5 busbar configurations.

“Not many stringers are really designed for four to five busbars and its new challenges,” M10’s Reddemann told pv magazine in an interview earlier this year. “These challenges can be the access and the time for exchange of ribbon coils, the handling and placing of < 1mm ribbon or the energy management in soldering. Upgrading the existing stringer may be a short-term solution. In the long term, it’s a new saddle for an old horse. The market is looking for new solutions with standard materials.”

“I would simply say that we have set a new dimension of efficiency when it comes to extending throughput on limited floor space on everything, including two to five busbar cells,” said Reddemann. “This has been achieved by the patent pending non-stop production and the soldering of six strings at once on the Kubus.”

The August edition of pv magazine included a roundtable discussion with leading stringer providers, including M10 Industries, teamtechnik and Xcell Automation.
