According to Aurora, REC Group has placed an order for two of its Decima 3T and Veritas products. The tools are used in the measurement and optimization of cell production processes.
Aurora also received with the order a Letter of Intent for the order of additional units, which could expand the order to up to eight units, depending on decisions over further capacity expansion. Financial details of the transaction were not disclosed, however Aurora Solar Technologies states that “shipment of the balance [will] follow in accordance with additional purchase orders.”
“We are excited to see another endorsement of our unique capabilities for solar cell characterization from an industry leader,” said Aurora CEO Michael Heaven. “We look forward to working with REC Group to realize the benefits of the inline measurement systems for rapid ramp-up of the new lines and to optimize the manufacturing yield of these advanced cells.”
REC Group is in the process of upgrading much of its production capacity, which is located in Singapore, to produce multicrystalline PERC silicon cells, and in the past 12 months has placed major equipment orders with Meyer Burger for its diamond wire sawing platforms, and with 3d Micromac for its laser contact opening systems.
