Auria Solar has become the first manufacturer to reach the mass-production stage with Oerlikon Solar's end-to-end manufacturing technology for high Micromorph thin-film silicon solar PV modules, says Oerlikon.
Oerlikon and Auria Solar ramped up the entire 60 MW Tainan, Taiwan, facility and brought it to mass production in less than eight months after the move-in of equipment. Oerlikon Solar's tandem-junction Micromorph process will enable Auria Solar to produce 60 MW of highly efficient, cost-effective thin-film silicon solar PV modules per year, according to the companies. The line also received TUV Rheinland IEC certification.
