Nines Photovoltaics ships first industrial tool to Fraunhofer ISE, Germany

Nines Photovoltaics  has completed the build of its first industrial silicon wafer processing tool and has recently shipped it to the Fraunhofer ISE Germany, the largest solar energy research institute in Europe, where it will be installed and validated in a production environment.

The shipment of this automated tool is a big step toward commercialization and represents a major milestone for Nines Photovoltaics, moving the technology away from the lab and closer to production. Fraunhofer ISE operates at the cutting edge of innovative solar technology and is one of only two places in the world that can certify solar cell efficiencies. They will provide an ideal platform to benchmark Nines Photovoltaic process against state of the art solar cell production, and promote the technology to solar cell manufacturers worldwide.
