TAIPEI, TAIWAN: Jenn Feng New Energy, based in Taiwan, has obtained an order worth US $51 million for a copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic (PV) module production line, having an annual capacity of 30-MWp, from China. The shipments will start in August 2010.


In a statement, Jong Min-fu, chairman of Jenn Feng New Energy, said the company has completed assembling a CIGS thin-film module production line for its own use – with 50 per cent of the components having been imported and the rest 50 per cent either produce by Jenn Feng New Energy or by local manufacturers.

The company, which has already conducted trial runs on the CIGS thin-film module production line, is all set to begin volume-production, according to Jong Min-fu.

Jenn Feng New Energy, its chairman said, expects to get certification for its CIGS thin-film PV modules from TUV Rheinland, based in Germany, in May 2010. The company has applied for over 30 patents.

The firm said it will supply the self-assembled CIGS thin-film PV module production line on a turn-key basis. The first order, from China, is for 140×110cm modules at a guaranteed minimum energy conversion rate of 9 per cent.

Jenn Feng New Energy added that it is negotiating orders with clients in Taiwan. It intends to sell 10 CIGS turn-key lines a year.
