At the site in Bitterfeld-Wolfen (Germany), a modern solar cell production facility is being built. In the first step, the production will have an annual capacity of 400 MW, which will be increased to several GW in further expansion stages.
Next generation Solar Cells
Meyer Burger plans to produce solar cells using the highly efficient heterojunction technology (HJT) in Bitterfeld-Wolfen. Solar cells are produced on production equipment developed in-house, which, thanks to their structure and special temperature behaviour, enable an outstanding energy yield. Meyer Burger has developed and industrialized the necessary manufacturing processes and equipment itself in its technology and product centers in Hauterive (Switzerland) and Hohenstein-Ernstthal (Germany). The solar cells produced are primarily intended for the company's own solar module production in Freiberg (Germany).
