August 22 (Renewables Now) - An unnamed Chinese manufacturer of turnkey solar cell manufacturing lines has ordered inline heterojunction (HJT) measurement systems from Canada’s Aurora Solar Technologies Inc (CVE:ACU), the latter announced on Wednesday.
The customer has purchased four DM-121 measurement systems and associated AS-100 servers, which it will use to test and integrate Aurora's products within its turnkey offerings and in an end-user pilot project, the announcement says.
The units are expected to be delivered by next month.
Aurora’s CEO Gordon Deans commented that this order opens up a new original equipment manufacturer (OEM) channel to market in China and represents the first sale of its DM-121 measurement system for commercial production of HJT solar cells. The company anticipates eight-fold growth in this market segment over the next four years, he added.
