Singulus Equipment to Support Hanergy Solar Production
KAHL AM MAIN, Germany, June 26, 2014 — A Hanergy Solar Group subsidiary has agreed to pay Singulus Technologies more than € 15 million for thin-film deposition equipment to be used at Hanergy’s new high-efficiency solar cell factory in Caofeidian, China.
Singulus’ Tenuis II machine performs buffer layer deposition, which the company said presents a development in efficient wet-chemical coating of copper-indium-gallium-selenium (CIGS) solar modules. It has a modular cluster build basis, which the company said facilitates the simultaneous one-side coating of two substrates.
Hanergy is in the process of building a 600 MW CIGS production facility. The company says it has achieved 20.5 percent solar conversion efficiency using CIGS.

- Metal used in components of the crystalline semiconductor alloys indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs), indium gallium arsenide phosphide (InGaAsP), and the binary semiconductor indium phosphide (InP). The first two are lattice-matched to InP as the light-emitting medium for lasers or light-emitting diodes in the 1.06- to 1.7-µm range, and the last are used as a substrate and cladding layer.
