Adding another feather in its cap, Heraeus Photovoltaics has expanded its China and Singapore research & development (R&D) capabilities via setting up fully-equipped innovation centers.

Through establishing new innovation center in Shanghai, China, the leading supplier of metallization solutions to the photovoltaic industry is aiming to expand its present local R&D capabilities.

This new center will be specifically focused on technical requirements of China-based customers such as current-generation of metallization pastes to accelerate customers’ speed-to-market.

Further, this new China innovation center is expected to be fully staffed and operational by September 2019.

Commenting on the development, Heraeus Photovoltaics, President, Martin Ackermann said, “Asia, especially China, is the world leader in solar energy, and the world’s largest photovoltaics customers are here.”

“By streamlining and localizing R&D, we increase our market focus, accelerate product innovation and facilitate local alignment between sales, R&D and our customers,” Ackermann added.

At the same time, the company will significantly strengthen its current R&D capabilities at its center in Singapore also.

Heraeus said that both centers will be vital for new product development and customer specific modifications for mono and multi-crystalline silicon cells.

In order to celebrate these new investments, the company has invited Timo Boll, world champion table tennis star, to meet it’s customers and show attendees at the SNEC PV Power Expo on its booth (booth #W3-510) on June 4, 2019.

This year, the company has become the first metallization paste maker to achieve the target of supplying paste to manufacture 200 GW photovoltaic (PV) cells over the last years.

On this achievement, Ackermann said, “This achievement is just a preview of what we intend to accomplish in the next ten years by delivering performance, value and stability to our customers. Solar energy has a bright and promising future, and Heraeus will continue to deepen and strengthen our commitment to the photovoltaics industry.”
