Heraeus Photovoltaics signs new strategic cooperation with Solar Space (Zhonghui Photovoltaics) to develop High-performance Silver Pastes Solutions

Shanghai, China, June 22, 2017

Heraeus Photovoltaics, a leading provider of technology and service solutions for the renewable energy industry, announces that it has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Solar Space. Under the agreement, the two parties will carry out comprehensive cooperation in regular processes, dual printing and other new technologies and solutions to optimize metallization paste performance and application, as well as production process improvements in the solar cell production of Solar Space and Zhonghui Photovoltaics.

Liu Guyan, general manager of Solar Space, said, “Based on the remarkable advantages of Heraeus Photovoltaics’ SOL9641BX in single process, we will be able to improve our competitiveness with more powerful support from Heraeus in our dual printing and the other processes that are planned for the future. Together with Heraeus expertise, we also expect further breakthroughs in performance through optimization of the SOL9642BX product and production processes.” Liu expressed that the exchange and cooperation with Heraeus regarding technologies, development and other cores would be enhanced by Solar Space’s planning for four phases’ development.

Dr. Zhang Weiming, senior vice president and Chief Technology Officer of Heraeus Photovoltaics, said, “Combining Solar Space Know-how and Heraeus expertise indicates a great strategic step for the industry. Heraeus’ technologies, understanding of the industry and process expertise are unique in the industry. This cooperation will support Solar Space to further improve processes, efficiencies and will help both companies to grow further.”

Since the early period of production, Solar Space has had faith in Heraeus’ powerful technological prowess and development competence, and witnessed its products from all series, from the 9411 to the current 9641BX. The sound cooperation over the years and the solid foundation of trust resulted in this comprehensive cooperation. The two parties will closely collaborate and solve problems with sincerity and openness in order to make new breakthroughs to improve the conversion efficiency of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells.

About Solar Space Photovoltaic Technology (Zhonghui Photovoltaic)

Founded in 2010, Jiangsu Solar Space Photovoltaic Technology Co., Ltd. is an enterprise dedicated to the production of solar cells. It currently has three mass production workshops, which mainly manufacture poly crystalline solar cells with a capacity of up to 1.3GW and a daily output of more than 800,000 pieces. At the beginning of 2017, it launched the expansion project of “10GW in 2020.” It plans to complete four phases with a capacity of 3GW by the end of 2017, and five phases with a capacity of 5GW by the end of 2018. It is expected to complete a monolithic two-story 5GW workshop to join the 10GW club. During expansion, Solar Space has always been upholding the principle of “Product Quality First” and working with the best suppliers.
