Meyer Burger Research AG

In Hauterive, a team of young researchers with widely differing backgrounds, such as microelectronics, physics, chemistry and materials science, are at work. Their focus is on transferring technologies from the laboratory scale to the mass-production scale at the Technology & Product Center in Hohenstein-Ernstthal.

Heterojunction pilot plant

In November 2014, the new pilot plant for the production of high-efficiency heterojunction solar cells was opened in the presence of media and representatives from industry, research and politics. The pilot plant has a production capacity of 600 kilowatts.

The manufactured cells are assembled into modules and tested both in the laboratory and in the field. At the same time, the pilot is used to develop new technologies that make solar cells even more efficient and production even more cost-effective.
