Solar Thin Films Inc., a developer, manufacturer and marketer of manufacturing equipment for the production of thin-film amorphous silicon photovoltaic modules, has signed an agreement with Ulster County, N.Y., for the establishment of a solar module manufacturing plant.
The company will utilize solar module manufacturing machinery produced by Kraft Electronikai, a subsidiary of Solar Thin Films based in Budapest, Hungary. The company anticipates that, once established, the facility will be capable of establishing six lines of equipment capable of producing 36 MW of module power.
In addition, Solar Thin Films will also use its new Ulster County location for research into the enhancement of amorphous silicon module efficiency, as well as the development of copper indium gallium selenide panels.
