Exciting news from PV-Tech. Inline equipment specialist Aurora Solar Technologies has been awarded a major volume manufacturing order from LG Electronics.

Aurora said that the order was for 12 Decima CD measurement systems and multiple Veritas Servers that would be deployed at several of LG’s production lines with shipments expected before the end of February 2017.

Earlier this year, LG Electronics announced plans to expand N-Type monocrystalline cell production in South Korea from a 1 gigawatts nameplate capacity to 3 gigawatts by 2020. The company said that it would allocate around US $435 million for capital expenditure.

Aurora’s Decima CD measurement system has been used for the rapid measurement of silicon wafers after processing in a diffusion furnaces to achieve stable repeatability of wafer-to-wafer fabrication of solar cell emitters.
