Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing software provider, says that centrotherm photovoltaics AG, a provider of technology and equipment for the photovoltaic and semiconductor sectors, has selected Eyelit's manufacturing execution system (MES) and supporting products for PV module production.
Eyelit and centrotherm have embarked on their first joint venture for Shan Solar Pvt. Ltd., a crystalline silicon PV panel manufacturing plant that recently started production in Chennai, India. The plant is currently able to produce 30 MW of solar modules per year, and Shan Solar will ramp up to 100 MW after a projected expansion.
Eyelit's MES, Asset Management, Executive Dashboard and Client Reporting products will be used to track, monitor and provide product visibility throughout the manufacturing process and support Shan Solar's production ramp, the company says.
