The Chinese innovation award marks DEK Solar’s third win for its contribution to advancing PV cell manufacturing processes this year

UK firm DEK Solar has won another award for its contributions to advancing modern PV cell manufacturing processes in China this year. DEK Solar, which is a screen printing provider based in the UK, won the Photovoltaic Equipment Innovation Award for its PV metallisation platforms at China’s International Photovoltaic Industry Innovation Technology Conference in Beijing.

The Photovoltaic Equipment Innovation Award adds to previous wins for DEK Solar and is the third win for the company’s metallisation PV platforms this year. This includes winning the Excellent Supplier Award at the China Photovoltaic Industry Development Form and Conference in November. 

The innovation award was given for DEK Solar’s Apollo and Eclipse metallisation platforms, as well as its Fine Line Stencil technology. DEK Solar said the company is unique among metallisation equipment specialists in providing an extraordinarily holistic approach to cell metallisation processes. With decades of printing expertise, the company said it combines its state-of-the-art precision platforms with a deep understanding of material behavior and stencil and screen performance. 

Adjudicated by members of the PV media and PV associations, China’s International Photovoltaic Industry Innovation Technology Conference awards program selects winners based on three specific criteria. The companies that top each category must “demonstrate innovation, have a significant influence on the solar industry and be a driving force for enhancing competitiveness,” DEK Solar said. 

Brian Lau, DEK Solar director, said: “We are very honored to have been chosen as the leader in this category among such a distinguished group of participants. This award is further confirmation of DEK Solar’s commitment to ongoing innovation and the development of enabling technologies to make solar power more affordable, efficient and accessible.”

“Winning awards such as this Equipment Innovation Award underscores the important work we are carrying out on a daily basis with leading global solar cell manufacturers and industry partners,” added Lau. “We extend our sincere appreciation to the China International Photovoltaic Industry Innovation Technology Conference for organising this important industry event and to the judging panel for so aptly acknowledging DEK Solar’s innovative leadership.”
