Mondragon Assembly, in cooperation with its exclusive agent, Sunplast Enerji in Turkey has just completed the installation of a solar PV cell tester and sorter in Turkey, in the Center for Solar Energy Research and Applications (GÜNAM).
The supplied equipment is a last generation automatic cell tester and sorter system for crystalline silicon cells. This system reaches the A+ quality for temporal stability, non-uniformity of irradiance and spectral match.
Prof. Dr. RAŞIT TURAN, leader for wafer based PV in GÜNAM, mentions that “this system will allow us to make accurate measurements and cell characterization, which is essential in our research projects. Indeed, the system is both, very precise and fast, and very compact and user friendly”.
IGOR HERRARTE, EMEA global sales director at MONDRAGON ASSEMBLY said “it has been a pleasure to cooperate with GÜNAM, one of the first research centers in EMEA region. Equipment manufacturers, we have many things to learn from laboratories. We really hope to cooperate with GÜNAM with the objective to achieve photovoltaics to be the first source of energy!”
