German solar tooling firm J. v. G. Thoma has confirmed the sale agreement of two robot layups to a Turkish producer of DESERT solar panels.
The two tools – which automate and expedite the process of loading solar glass on to panels during production – are, according to the Bavarian firm, packed and ready for transport. Together they can support the realization of 240 MW of solar PV capacity.
DESERT panels claim to deliver 5% more yield that conventional panels using HPTP process technology. The modules are PID-free (potential-induced degradation) and can withstand higher temperatures than typical crystalline PV modules. The panels are also proven to work well in sandstorms, high winds and areas with high levels of humidity.
J. v. G. Thoma did not disclose the name of the buyer in Turkey, a country that is eyeing 3 GW of solar PV capacity by 2023.
