RIBER seals a major order for JET Selenium linear evaporators from Singulus Technologies for the CIGS photovoltaics industry
Bezons, October17th, 2016 – 6:00pm – RIBER, a leading equipment manufacturer for semiconductors materials, is announcing the signature of a more than million Euros contract with Singulus Technologies, Germany, a global leader in the development of innovative industrial solutions for solar industry.
RIBER will provide to Singulus Technologies its Selenium evaporator, the Jet 40K Selenium, which is a linear evaporator able to evaporate material alongside a surface. Selenium is one of the key element for making CIGS thin-film solar cell, used in the PV industry. CIGS thin films are made using large roll-to-roll or inline machines that deposit materials onto glass or substrate film moving at a high speed above the evaporators.
These Jet 40K Selenium evaporators will be installed on the several evaporation machines of Singulus Technologies, that will equip a new China plant aimed at producing hundreds of MW of CIGS solar panel per year.
Under the contract, RIBER will deliver lots of evaporators spanning during the first half of 2017.
This contract results from the successful operation of Jet 40K Selenium evaporators that are used since several years to produce CIGS thin-films in Germany and the USA, and which are providing high quality and high thickness uniformity across large area of substrate film at high throughput.
