  oCoating machine for rear side passivation of PERC for increased cell
  oNew PERC cells with higher efficiency levels announced
  o100 % PID-free solar cells produced on SINGULUS' turnkey line
  oProven CIGS production systems for all key processes

In the Solar segment SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES (SINGULUS) is a worldwide leading
supplier for new production solutions for crystalline and thin-film solar
cells, which with lower production costs increase the level of efficiency or
achieve a higher level of efficiency.

For crystalline solar cells SINGULUS presents advanced production solutions
for passivated rear silicon solar cells. The SINGULAR XP is specifically
designed for the production capacity of a typical cell production line. In
addition, SINGULUS' machine provides the advantage that the two layer systems
required for the rear side passivation, aluminum oxide (AIOx) and silicon
nitride (SiNx) can be applied without discontinuation of the vacuum. Due to
its compact assembly the SINGULAR XP machine is ideally suited for the
integration as an upgrade for existing cell production lines. Before coating
the rear side it is smoothed with a wet-chemical glaze in a LINEA II glazing

A new 21.2% world record efficiency for PERC was achieved earlier this year by
the Institute for Solar Energy Research, Emmerthal, Germany, within the
research project High Screen funded by the German Federal Ministry of the
Environment in collaboration with several project partners.

The solar cells produced on the SINGULUS turn-key line in Lithuania are 100 %
PID-free due to SINGULUS specifically designed coating technology.

SINGULUS cooperates with thin-film solar cell manufacturers worldwide and
develops processes, which improve the efficiency and reduce production costs.

SINGULUS is market leader for the wet-chemical cleaning applying CIS and CdTe
processes. New plant concepts expand the value-added chain of the company in
the area of thin-film solar technology. SINGULUS offers modern production
systems for CIS/CIGS & CdTe thin film solar panels.

With Sputtering & evaporation, the selenisation for an optimized CIGS absorber
formation as well as wet processing solutions SINGULUS already covers two
thirds of the required machines of a CIS/CIGS modules production with its
range of machines.
