British Columbia-based Day4 Energy Inc., a manufacturer of solar electric modules, says it has received the first batch of proprietary photovoltaic production machinery from German supplier ACI-ecoTec. The equipment arrived approximately two months ahead of scheduled deployment, the company says.
The ACI-ecoTec equipment is a part of production line expansion that is designed to more than triple Day4's current annual production capacity at the company's Vancouver-area headquarters from 12 MW to 40 MW by the end of the second quarter of 2008. The new equipment is designed to manufacture the Day4 48 MC solar module, which is based on the company's proprietary Day4 Electrode technology.
‘Initial test runs of the new equipment are providing very encouraging results, which in turn positively impacts our ability to expedite delivery of high-quality product to our expanding global customer base,’ says Benjamin Duperthal, director of operations for Day4.
