June 23, 2011 — Norway-based Tordivel AS acquired 85% of Tordivel Solar AS shares, after Tordivel Solar sold its wafer inspection system technology to Semilab in February 2011.
The Tordivel group expects to grow in the solar photovoltaics (PV) sector again, after this transaction, Tordivel’s agreement with Semilab within the wafer inspection arena, and general good forecasts for photovoltaics manufacturing, said Thor Vollset, Tordivel Solar AS CEO and inventor of Scorpion Vision Software. The Tordivel strategy within the PV market is to grow together with Semilab in wafer inspection, bringing in R&D projects from leading solar cell manufacturers and developing the remaining business areas of Tordivel Solar: ingot measurement, ingot identification, 2D and 3D ingot classification, and NIR-scanning technologies.
