The ” Large Format Project “ ? This is the ambition of becoming the first 100% European manufactured 210mm² wafers producer to anticipate the needs of tomorrow’s photovoltaïc market.

Photowatt decided to acquire new skills to optimize the performances of its new industrial production, through 5 steps that will be shared in the next few weeks.

First step : Two new huge capacity low carbon furnaces were implemented to accelerate our productivity, with below characteristics : 

  • 1.3 ton load per production cycle
  • Increasing productivity of 60% compared to old equipments
  • Decreasing the electrical consumption per kg produced

The target is to enhance the silicon crystallization performances, and to consolidate the leadership position of Photowatt in low carbon footprint.
