Meyer Burger today announced completion of the contract for a new equipment order, consisting of both MB PERC cell technology and SiNA cell coating system.
The buyer, an existing customer of Meyer Burger, reportedly plans to upgrade and expand its production volume for high efficiency PERC cells. The order volume of approximately CHF 22 million is expected to be recognized in 2018.
In June, Meyer Burger announced that it would be temporarily increasing production of its MB PERC technology in order to keep up with demand, after receiving another order worth more than $80 million.
Last week, the company also launched an updated MAiA production tool, the MAiA EVO. One order for the new tool has already been placed by Chinese manufacturer LONGi Solar.
