Polish module maker Bruk-Bet Solar raises annual capacity to 120 MW

Bruk-Bet Solar, a PV module manufacturer based in Tarnow, southern Poland, announced it has increased its annual production capacity from 30 MW to 120 MW.

The company said the new production line installed at the facility will manufacture both standard and glass-glass modules with PERC cells. Bruk-Bet Solar bought the Matrix Assembly System MAS3.8 from the Swiss manufacturer Meyer Burger together with two STR2000 stringers and the NG3622 XLCP laminator.

The company said the new equipment will enable the production of modules with 4 and 5 busbars. This, Bruk-Bet Solar claims, will ensure the flexibility of production, together with the increase in capacity.

“In this industry you have to constantly evolve and invest in new technologies. If not, it is difficult to maintain the innovation and competitiveness of the product. Four and five busbars will allow us to create even more efficient photovoltaic modules. The current standard of three busbars has already gone to the past, “said the managing director of Bruk-Bet Solar Paweł Bień.

The company manufactures polycrystalline modules ranging in power from 45Wp to 340Wp and monocrystalline panels with a power range of 45Wp to 385Wp. For both module typologies the company can produce panels with 12,18, 24, 36, 48, 54, 60 and 72 cells. The manufacturer, which also produces glass-glass BIPV modules, offers as well the production of photovoltaic modules on OEM and ODM basis

All of the production equipment installed at the factory was provided by Meyer Burger.
