11.6.2007: Meldung: China Sunergy: Production of Selective Emitter Cells
Following extensive research and development, the Company has been able to achieve small-scale commercial production of its selective emitter cells and also deliver average conversion efficiency rate that has been well above 17%. Following these promising pilot production runs, China Sunergy is confident that it remains on track to achieve full scale commercial production of selective emitter cells in the second half of 2007.
As part of the move towards full commercial production of selective emitter cells, the Company has already placed an order with Italian based equipment manufacturer Baccini S.P.A. to purchase a printing machine that will allow it to conduct more scalable commercial production runs of these high- efficiency cells in the second half of the year. The printing machine and other ancillary equipment are expected to arrive in late June and the installation and trial run to be completed sometime in July this year.
Commenting on the development, Lu Tingxiu, Chairman and CEO of China Sunergy said:
""The commercialization of our selective emitter cells remains on track and I am pleased with the results our research and development team has achieved. China Sunergy will continue to focus on developing the technologies required to produce highly-efficiency solar cells and on being an industry leader in this important part of the solar value chain.""
