MiaSole, a manufacturer of copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic solar panels, has entered into an agreement with Intel's technical manufacturing services practice.
Under this agreement, Intel will provide customized manufacturing services and systems, strategic consulting, operational knowledge and training to MiaSole as the company ramps up its manufacturing facilities this year and next year.
Manufacturing is central to MiaSole's business, the company says. The manufacturer has increased its annualized production capacity to over 50 MW in just over a year and is on track to triple capacity to over 150 MW by the end of this year. The agreement with Intel is expected to accelerate the production ramp with improved repeatability and consistency required for high-volume manufacturing.Â
