Midsummer Receives Repeat Order From Asia For Thin Film Manufacturing System

Midsummer, a Swedish technology provider of equipment for cost-effective manufacturing of flexible CIGS thin film solar cells, has received a repeat order for its compact DUO solar cell manufacturing system from an undisclosed Asian customer. This new order was received in connection with Midsummer's first system at the customer going into production with an efficiency of the solar cells of over 15 percent, which was 2 percentage points higher than the promised specification.

Midsummer has received a repeat order for its compact DUO thin film solar cell manufacturing system from an undisclosed Asian customer, this after the first machine surpassed the acceptance criteria for cell efficiency by over two percentage points at the customer's production site. Due to a strong demand for lightweight, flexible modules, the customer decided to buy yet another DUO manufacturing system, which will be delivered mid 2017.

"This fantastic success by our engineers is another proof that Midsummer AB and Swedish technology is at the forefront of the race towards a fossil free planet. The DUO system is now the most widely spread manufacturing tool for flexible CIGS solar cells. We have yet again shown that we are the leading provider of turnkey production lines of flexible thin film CIGS", said Sven Lindström, CEO, Midsummer AB.

The system will be used for manufacturing of lightweight flexible panels to cater the growing needs for portable panels and roof top installations. 



The Midsummer DUO is a compact, fully automatic deposition system for CIGS solar cell manufacturing. It is designed for operational stability and superior material utilization.

Midsummer is a leading global provider of turnkey production lines for cost-effective manufacturing of flexible thin film CIGS (copper, indium, gallium and selenium) solar cells. Midsummer has developed a rapid process for the production of these solar cells using sputtering of all layers of the solar cell. This allows for scalable and cost-effective manufacturing of thin film solar cells. Midsummer's customers are manufacturers of thin-film solar cells worldwide.
