Two Lamination Lines Ypsator® 2022-6 SL increase EMMVEEs Module Capacity by 350 MW
The German equipment supplier Bürkle has received an order for 2 Multi-Opening Lamination Lines Ypsator® 2022-6 SL from EMMVEE Photovoltaic Power India. This is Bürkle’s first project with Multi-Opening Laminators in India.
Each Lamination Line has 6 openings and can process 2 pieces 60 cell or 2 pieces 72 cell solar modules per opening which results in a capacity of 12 modules per cycle. The Laminators are equipped with the SL-Process Technology from Bürkle, which can run process times of >7,5min in a one step process. These short cycle times make the Bürkle Ypsator® Lamination Line to a high efficiency tool with a huge throughput and a high uptime at a maximum yield. This extension increases the annual capacity of EMMVEE Photovoltaics Power up to 350MW, even on the limited floor space in the factory.
Michael Essich, Sales Director PV at Bürkle mentions: “We have seen that customers like the idea of using a maximum output solution on a limited floor space. The possibility to replace a 50 MW line with a 3 times or even higher capacity on the same floor space is one of the unique advantages. The Multistack solution founds the possibility for the customers to expand their capacity without building new factories and generates the possibility to save time and costs in a massive amount. India is a fast growing PV Market and the Ypsator® Lamination System is the perfect solution to scale up production capacity in a short period of time.”
Mr. Manjunatha D.V Managing Director of EMVEE says we are proud to have a partnership with Bürkle. This partnership matches to EMMVEE’s philosophy of developing strong relationship with technology leaders.
The Bürkle Multi-Opening Lamination Line Ypsator® is available in different sizes and configurations between 4 and 10 openings. For the lamination of glass-backsheet modules the lamination process is carried out in a vacuum membrane press followed by a cooling press. For the lamination of glass-glass modules (either thin film or crystalline cells) Bürkle offers a unique lamination process. The lamination process is divided into 2 steps. In the first step the modules are pre-laminated and sealed. The final lamination is carried out in a hot press with top and bottom heating platens which results in a very uniform heating and reduces the edge pinch of the modules. The cooling is carried out in a separate cooling step.
