Vancouver solar firm strikes deal with Austrian PV manufacturer
Day4 Energy will provide technology and equipment to upgrade 30 mega-watt production plant
BURNABY—Day4 Energy Inc. has agreed to provide PV Products (PVP), a solar module manufacturer based in Styria, Austria with equipment and technology to upgrade their 30 mega-watt production facility for the manufacture of solar modules using Day4 DNA Technologies.
The upgrade of PVP’s automated 30 mega-watt production facility to Day4 technology is scheduled to begin immediately, with production anticipated to start in early September 2011.
PVP will transition its existing line to manufacture Day4 DNA solar modules with minimum capital investment. The modules will feature Day4 DNA PV cells which do not require soldering and eliminate PV cell energy losses after module lamination.
They also enable the manufacturing of solar modules based on work-smart technology, which significantly reduces the effects of shading on module performance, according to the company.
