Valoe announces IBC solar cell order for specialist applications


Having told pv magazine in December it hoped to begin deliveries of its Lithuanian-made inter-digitated back contact (IBC) solar cells by April, Finnish manufacturer Valoe today announced a €500,000 order from Czechian module maker Fill Factory.

The Nordic company, which completed a drawn-out acquisition of a 60 MW factory in Vilnius from Lithuanian cell maker Solitek a year ago, said it would begin supplying its IBC products to Fill Factory immediately, under the one-year deal.

Valoe did not state what volume of cells the order comprises but said the client manufactures solar modules for specialist applications including building-integrated PV, street furniture and industrial uses.

The Finnish business began manufacturing its cells in Vilnius in December after installing IBC production equipment bought from defunct Italian manufacturer Megacell Srl.

The company has previously stated an ambition to eventually double the annual production capacity of the former Solitek fab.
