TEMPE, Ariz., | AMTECH SYSTEMS —
Amtech’s solar subsidiary, Tempress Systems; has received a large, multi-system order for its next-generation solar diffusion systems from a leading solar cell and module manufacturer in China.
The systems are expected to ship within the next three to nine months.
Mr. Fokko Pentinga, Chief Executive Officer of Amtech, commented, “After successful implementation of approximately 400 megawatts (MW) of HD-POCl3 systems at a top-tier Taiwanese cell producer, we are proud to announce an order of approximately 800MW for our atmospheric high-throughput diffusion system. This new order came from one of the most technologically advanced cell producers in China.
“We are very pleased that our fully integrated, automated, new system platform, including the state-of-the-art HD process, is fully qualified and accepted in the industry at a very critical phase of new selective expansions. This new HD-POCl3 process has demonstrated significantly lower cost of ownership than competing technologies and is providing important benefits to our customers. We continue to believe that we are fully participating in the selective expansion activities ahead of the next full recovery cycle.”
