Grossroehrsdorf, Germany [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Sunfilm AG has completed construction of a new 20,000 square-meter plant that is now due to begin operations in 2009. This is the second line at the facility. It has a nominal annual capacity of more than 60 megawatts (MW) and is situated next to Sunfilm’s first production facility in Grossroehrsdorf.
It will also use equipment from Applied Materials, Inc to produce thin-film tandem junction modules. Pre-production is scheduled for mid-2009 ith commercial production due to start later that year.
The two plants together will bring Sunfilm’s annual thin-film capacity to over 120 MW using ultra-large format of up to 5.7m². The company was originally formed in 2007 by Good Energies and NorSun to develop thin-film solar technologies.
