Oerlikon Solar, a supplier of thin-film silicon photovoltaic production equipment, says it has received an order from Hunan Gongchuang Photovoltaic Science & Technology Co. Ltd.
The Hengyang City, China-based company ordered a 40 MW Micromorph turnkey production line, known as the FAB 1200. The production line will be in mass production by the end of 2011, producing approximately 330,000 solar modules per year.
Oerlikon Solar's customer contract with Gongchuang, which was signed in August at a Sino-Swiss conference in Beijing as part of a commemoration of 60 years of commercial ties between China and Switzerland, has now gone into effect.
