AVACO said offering its thin-film processing equipment in China will help provide solutions to challenges in PV manufacturing

Thin-film processing equipment from solar technology firm AVACO will be installed in PV manufacturing lines in China, the company has revealed. AVACO, a global supplier of thin-film processing equipment for producing PV has received an order to install its technology into manufacturing lines for mass production in China. The solar technology company will also install equipment in PV manufacturing lines in the US.   

The PV technology firm, which has its headquarters in South Korea, specialises in manufacturing sputtering vacuum deposition equipment and atomic layer deposition equipment. AVACO is also known for delivering proven mass production manufacturing equipment the firm has said encompasses all aspects related to thin-film coating such as TCO and metal electrode.

Chuck Kim, business development director of AVACO, said the company’s market entrance of its range of thin-film processing equipment strengthens its offering in China in providing technology solutions to customers for challenges in PV manufacturing.

“We are pleased with our market expansion in the US/China PV industry,” Kim said. “New market entrance with our core technology further strengthens and broadens our offering of core competency, enabling AVACO to continue to serve our customers with innovative and leading-edge technology solutions for thin film-manufacturing challenges."

Techniques to improve PV manufacturing and production processes are developing in China. In November 2013, Chinese firm Hanwha SolarOne announced completed integration of cell technology into its PV production processes. Through the implementation of the innovative technology, Hanwha SolarOne said it is able to optimise PV production processes and reduce costs.
