Post date: 27/04/2021 - 18:19
Swiss-based Meyer Burger Technology AG unveiled its first self-produced solar modules in an online presentation on Tuesday (April 27).
For the solar cells, Meyer Burger relies on heterojunction technology, combining a crystalline wafer with an amorphous silicon layer. The cells are bifacial, i.e. they can also convert light into electricity on the reverse side. The bifaciality factor is a very good 90 percent. The interconnection relies on the »Smart-Wire« technology developed by Meyer Burger. The module efficiencies are a maximum of 21.8 percent, and the output is up to 400 W.
Until now, the company has been active as a production equipment provider, but in the future it intends to focus on the production of solar cells and modules. The opening of the new production facilities is scheduled for May, with the start of production announced for June. Deliveries to customers are expected to start in July. The modules can be purchased through wholesalers, including BayWa, IBC, Memodo, Krannich and Solarmarkt.
