64MW inline RUV in Canada
2.400/hr pre stringer solution
Eclipsall, a brand new Canadian Solar Enterprise that was founded in 2009 coinciding with the launch of Ontario's Green Energy Act, has announced the launch of a manufacturing plant near Toronto, to produce solar PV panels in mid 2011.
For this purpose the company purchased a turnkey solar module manufacturing line from RIMAS in the Netherlands. This 64MW manufacturing plant is equipped to meet all demands for the local market and competitively bring European solar manufacturing knowledge and quality into Canada. The lean semi-automated production facility, will allow Eclipsall to provide the beautiful Ontario region with investment grade crystalline solar PV modules, and will provide direct employment to more than 90 people.
The manufacturing concept is enhanced by strict quality measurement equipment, such as the Resonance Ultrasonic Vibrations (RUV) crack detection methodology from RUV Systems. In this case RUV provides full incoming inspection of 2.400 solar cells per hour, prior to the stringer process, thus ensuring only stable solar cells are allowed into the line. For Eclypsall a double RUV unit is being interfaced with a Somont Rapid 4 stringer system.
