Mass Production Starts on 60-MW Oerlikon Line

Auria Solar is the first manufacturer to reach the mass production stage with Oerlikon Solar’s industry leading end-to-end manufacturing technology for high efficiency Micromorph thin film silicon solar PV modules.

Oerlikon Solar helped Auria Solar reach the mass production stage, and attain IEC certification from TÜV Rheinland, in record time. Oerlikon Solar and Auria Solar ramped up the entire 60-megawatt (MW) Tainan facility and brought it to mass production in less than eight months after the move-in of equipment.

“Oerlikon Solar was our preferred supplier because of its proven technology, superior panel performance, comprehensive customer service and unmatched track record in delivering the fastest time-to-market. We are extremely impressed with the speed in which Oerlikon Solar’s expert team was able to bring our Micromorph end-to-end fab to mass production,” said Dr. Chi-Yao Tsai, CEO of Auria Solar. “With our own innovations and state-of-the-art technologies, Auria Solar can already produce modules with 120 W stabilized power output and 9% conversion efficiency.”
