4,800 watts X 24 Hr = 115,200 
115,200 X 7 days = 806,400 Watts 
806,400 X 52 Wks. = 41,932,800 watts 
41,932,800 X .8 production = 33,546,240 Watts 
The tools have been de-installed and are presently stored in a climate controlled environment. 
The tools are not crated so you may do a visual inspection if desired. 
There are some video showing the line on youtube. 
Here are links to the videos:
This system is used for the production of solar cells by the silk-screen printing process.
This process allows the production of:
-Glass protections
The loading of the system is carried out by a conveyer with vision system. Wafer cells arrive from a conveyer to a Baccini 
conveyer and here, by a vision system the cells are aligned and put on a walking beam, by adjusting the speed of the first
conveyer you can obtain loading heaps of 4 or 6 cells.
Printing head resolution is approx 0.5nm


20 MWp
Model: Solar

Description: Qty 2 Module Manufacturing Lines
Version: 450 cm x 230 cm
Vintage: 01.06.2008
Quantity: 1
Sales Condition: as is where is

The acquired technology is SPIRE SOLAR, a partnership between SPIRE and NISSIHINDO, and the oven for lamination is NISSIHINDO

Full production requires about 15 people


Each line has a capacity of 12 MGW, so total capacity is 24 MGW.
The Cell sorter has a capacity of 20 MGW and the simulator of 72 MGW (can serve 6 lines)

The assemblers can produce around 600 cells/hour (depending obviously on the sizes of panels).

In the laminators the maximum size panels are 450 cm x 230 cm.

Please find attached an excel with the inventory of the machinery and pics of the equipment.

The lines are fully automated , except the last step (frame construction).
