Silicon Genesis (SiGen), a provider of process and technology for engineered substrates, says it has started production of solar wafers using its new high-volume manufacturing PolyMax system. According to the company, the PolyMax system has the ability to produce wafers thinner than is achievable with wire saw technology.
‘We believe the benefit of using kerf-free wafers will allow the PV industry to reach unsubsidized grid parity,’ says Francois Henley, CEO of SiGen. ‘The start-up of our high-volume manufacturing system is a key step towards achieving this goal.’
