Germany - centrotherm photovoltaics (www.centrotherm-pv.com) has succeeded in seamlessly continuing its business operations during the current insolvency protection proceedings. Despite the continued difficult market situation, new orders in the Solar Cell & Module segment, in particular, underscore the expertise of the leading technology and equipment supplier to the photovoltaic sector. For example, one new Taiwanese customer ordered a package of key equipment for diffusion and antireflective coating. A renowned Taiwanese customer of many years' standing also ordered the c.FIRE, the new generation of the established fast-firing furnace. centrotherm photovoltaics is a global market leader in both diffusion and PECVD systems, and the company ranks second in fast-firing furnaces.
Current projects have also been continued under the insolvency protection arrangements. In the coming days, a further partial delivery of key equipment for a 360 MW solar cell line will be made to a customer in China, a customer of many years' standing. "The seamless continuation of operations, and the loyalty of our customers and suppliers, are supporting our reorganization process, and form an important foundation for centrotherm's future. Our aim is to further strengthen our excellent market position and competitiveness," emphasized CEO Robert M. Hartung.
centrotherm photovoltaics and its foreign subsidiaries continue to provide system upgrades, replacement parts deliveries and services as previously.
centrotherm photovoltaics will present itself with its portfolio products and services at the EU PVSEC, one of the leading international photovoltaic industry trade fairs, which is to be held in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, at the end of September. Further trade fair activities will also occur in Taiwan, India and the MENA region in 2012.
