Meyer Burger’s FABiA® Cell Deposition Equipment wins Solar + Power Award 2018

 

 

The FABiA® coating system developed by Meyer Burger was awarded this year's Solar + Power Award in the category Solar PV Process Award during the EU PVSEC in Brussels.

 

 

The Solar + Power Award annually recognizes innovative manufacturing and product solutions within the entire value chain of the PV industry. Meyer Burger’s process engineer Valdimir Breus and development engineer Marcel Leonhardt accepted the award during the ceremony from Michael McCarthy (CEO of the Irish Solar Energy Association).

 

FABiA® cell deposition equipment is the only passivation machine on the market which combines three processes in one tool and offers benefits for future upgrades as a flexible modular system for mass production. FABiA® is qualified for PERC, PERx, p-type and n-type cell concepts, as well as for mono- and multi-crystalline wafers. The new FABiA® combines all market proven benefits of Meyer Burger’s industry leading MAiA® passivation technology which has over 30 GW equipment installed and in operation globally. This makes FABiA® the ideal technological platform to deliver top quality passivation processes for reduced overall production costs while ensuring customers a high return on investment. Advanced interfaces and no vacuum breakage provide further improved cell passivation, resulting in increased cell efficiency and equipment reliability, which significantly reduces overall costs throughout the operational cycle.
