The first CdTe factory with a standard capacity of 100 MW came into existence in Chengdu, in the Chinese province Sichuan.
The fully-automated factory in Chengdu has a production line with a length of 750 m, a cycle time of less than 1 minute and a 24/7/52 operating schedule. The factory’s equipment is mainly made in Europe and complemented by a number of Chinese components. From the factory’s layout and the selection of the equipment from leading European and Chinese manufacturers, to the precision design and integration of all components and processes – CTF Solar delivers high quality and the most advanced technology, putting the results of its extensive research and development work into effective practice.
Thanks to its expertise in the field of CdTe technology development and factory engineering and its proven implementation process, which has been specifically designed with a view to achieving high cost efficiency, CTF Solar is able to guarantee low operating cost structures, low investment and low risk. In view of the fact that CdTe technologies are furthermore far from having reached their maximum potential, there is yet further potential for reducing this technology’s cost in the future.
