"That's one small step for AMAT, one giant leap for mankind."
Der Kurs von AMAT steigt derzeit ...Warum ?
Ein Grund könnte die Installation einer "Sun-Fab" vom Applied Materials bei Moserbear in Indien sein!!
Während Oerlikon heute die erste "turnkey factory for thin-film silicon solar modules in Switzerland " mit Pramac SpA bekannt gab. Gibt es vom Konkurrenten Applied Materials schon weiter fortgeschrittene Tatsachen zu berichten, deren Fortschritte und Resulate derzeit weltweit mit Interesse verfolgt werden...
Thin Film Si Solar Cells to Be Produced in India
Feb 5, 2008 17:40
Moser Baer India Ltd of India has its optical disc and solar cell manufacturing center in Greater Noida on the outskirts of New Deli.
Other companies including LG Electronics of Korea and Franco-Italian STMicroelectronics also have their manufacturing facilities around it. Moser Baer's manufacturing center is currently drawing interest from solar cell-related manufacturers across the world.
Moser Baer's subsidiary Moser Baer Photo Voltaic Ltd is currently advancing preparation to manufacture a new thin film Si solar module. This solar module's distinctive feature is the adoption of a huge glass substrate that measures 2.2 x 2.6m. Its manufacturing equipment is a glass-to-module total production line dubbed "SunFab," which Applied Materials Inc (AMAT) is promoting.
Moser Baer will be the first external company that AMAT has ever supplied its SunFab to. The new manufacturing center's success or failure is being closely watched not only by global solar cell-related manufacturers, but also by firms that are considering entering the market.
That is because the glass-to-module production line lowers hurdles to entering the market, while the large substrate also slashes solar cell manufacturing cost.
If Moser Baer succeeds in the production, it will result in major changes in the relationships between solar cell manufacturers.
Particularly conspicuous was the huge autoclave, in addition to the PECVD equipment. The company had already set up and powered the PECVD equipment, which holds the key to the SunFab's success or failure. It was planning to test the glass substrate conveyor in several days, Moser Baer said.
Moser Baer plans 600 MW Thin Film PV capacity with an estimated investment of
over $ 1.5 bn
Saturday, February 09, 2008
Saturday, February 09, 2008 : Moser Baer India Limited today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, PV Technologies India Limited, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with a leading global equipment supplier to secure supply of critical equipment for a 565 MW phased expansion of its Thin Film photovoltaic modules manufacturing capacity, which together with the current project capacity of 40 MW will take the total manufacturing capacity to over 600 MW by 2010.
Ravi Khanna, CEO, PV said, “Leaders in the PV industry will continue to emerge on the strengths of rapid scale up and technology differentiation. We see an increasingly significant role for Thin Film technologies in meeting peaking power requirements and now aim to be a significant player in this arena.”
Thin film solar modules are ideal for energy farms, rural applications and building integrated Photovoltaic markets. Photovoltaic modules based on large area Thin Film technology provide a path to cost parity between solar generation and grid power. According to market estimates, the Thin Film based solar modules will see large emerging applications and a robust demand that, according to industry estimates is expected to grow ten fold; from 250 MW currently to 2GW with a market size of $5 bn by 2010.
