Indian module manufacturer Emmvee Solar, winner of the leading renewable energy manufacturer award at the REI show in September, is the first buyer of the Kubus MTS 5000 stringer. The two new machines will enable the company to increase its annual capacity by 340 MW, without the need for any additional floor space. According to M10, it is the only machine that can deliver uninterruped production with a flow rate of 5000 cells per hour.

“Our Kubus stringer can finally show what it is really made of. We achieved the promised 5000 cells per hour and the system availability was measured at 98%, says CEO of M10 Industries Gregor Reddemann. “The yield proved to more than 99.85%, and measured cell breakage was very low at 0.014%.”

The two machines were ordered in December 2015 and commissioned in October 2016, after Emmvee conducted extensive testing with a range of materials at the M10 headquarters in Freiburg, Germany. “Emmvee has always been in the forefront in adapting new technology,” says Managing Director & Founder Manjunatha D.V. “The acquisition of the Kubus stringer will help us to achieve greater heights in solar module production.”
