EMMVEE Increases Module Capacity by 350 MW with Addition of Two Burkle Multi-Opening Lamination Lines

The German Equipment Supplier Bürkle has received an order for 2 Multi-Opening Lamination Lines Ypsator® 2022-6 SL from EMMVEE Photovoltaic Power India. This sale is Bürkle’s first of the Multi-Opening Laminator to India.

Each Lamination Line has 6 openings and can process 2x60 cell and 2x72 cell solar modules per opening which results in a capacity of 12 modules per cycle. The Laminators are equipped with the SL-Process Technology from Bürkle, which can run with 1 Step process times from >7,5min. This makes the Bürkle Ypsator® Lamination Line an extremely high-efficiency tool with a high throughput, high uptime and high yield. This made it possible for EMMVEE Photovoltaics Power to extend its annual capacity up to 3500MW on the limited floor space in the factory.

Michael Essich, Sales Director PV at Bürkle, mentions that, “We have seen that customer like the idea for using the maximum output solution on a limited floor space or even replacing a 50 MW line with a 3x or even higher capacity. This helps the customer for expansion without building new factories which translates to time and cost savings. India is a fast growing PV Market and the Ypsator® Lamination System is the perfect solution to scale up production capacity in a short period of time. ”

Mr. Manjunatha D.V Managing Director of EMVEE says, "We are proud to have an association with Bürkle which is in line with EMMVEE’s philosophy of developing strong relationship with technology leaders."

The Bürkle Multi-Opening Lamination Line Ypsator® is available in different sizes and configurations with 4 to 10 openings. For the lamination of glass-backsheet modules the lamination process is carried out in a vacuum membrane press followed by a cooling press. For the lamination of glass-glass modules (either thin film or crystalline cells) Bürkle offers a unique lamination process. The lamination process is split into 2 steps. In the first step the modules are pre-laminated and sealed. The final lamination is carried out in a hot press with top and bottom heating platens which results in a very uniform heating and reduced edge pinch of the modules. The cooling is carried out in a separate cooling step.
