ENN Solar Energy Co. Ltd. has launched new silicon thin-film solar products featuring tandem-junction technology and is mass-producing its PV modules in order to reach 60 MW of production capacity by the end of this year.
With tandem-junction technology, two layers of amorphous and microcrystalline silicon are applied to the glass substrate (up to 5.7 m2). The layer of amorphous silicon absorbs short-wave light, while the other layer absorbs long-wave light. In turn, the PV products are able to convert solar energy into electricity in suboptimal conditions.
The modules are produced on the SunFab production line supplied by Applied Materials Inc., a U.S.-based company.
