Oerlikon Solar, a provider of thin-film photovoltaics manufacturing equipment, has received a UL Master Certificate for solar PV, and an expanded TUV Rheinland IEC certification for a new 130 W module design.
According to the company, these certifications will help Oerlikon's customers bring thin-film PV to market more quickly.
Micromorph and all other Oerlikon Solar technologies, including technologies produced on commercial TCO or on Oerlikon Solar in-house produced TCO, are now UL-certified (UL 1703). The UL Master Certificate is an important validation of product quality and bankability, and will be a key factor for sales of products by Oerlikon Solar customers in in North America, Oerlikon adds.
The additional TUV certification for an improved module design will provide a stabilized efficiency of 130 W by the end of this year.
