Oerlikon Reduces Gas Costs For Thin Film

Oerlikon Solar says it has reached a new milestone in reducing the cost of production for its Micromorph thin-film silicon PV panels.

Based on individual agreements between Oerlikon Solar and gas suppliers Air Liquide and Linde, Oerlikon Solar customers will be able to achieve a total gas budget of less than 8.5 euros per module.

The new costs represent a 20% reduction in the total cost of all gases and precursors supplied to new Oerlikon Solar ThinFab 120 MW line. This achievement lowers module production costs by up to 5%, the company adds.
