Energy company Nuon has decided to start building a factory for the large-scale production of solar cell laminate. This production facility will be located in Arnhem, The Netherlands, alongside the Nuon Helianthos test factory, which is currently under construction. The construction of the test factory in Arnhem is on schedule. The aim is to commission the test production line in the new factory in September. The official opening of the test factory will take place a few months later. As its next step Nuon has decided to invest in the first factory for the large-scale production of this solar cell laminate. The production facility is to be built next to the test factory. The global demand for affordable solar power is enormous, so it is important to bring to the market as soon as possible a product that meets this demand. "Parallel to the construction of the test factory we are working on the production process for the solar cell laminate," says Gert Jan Jongerden, director of Nuon Helianthos. "Both product and process will be further optimised in the test factory. In collaboration with several knowledge institutes we are working making the solar cell laminate even more efficient."
