GEROLD and solarnova® to launch pv-savvy-fab

(PresseBox) (Nettetal, ) Equipment manufacturer Maschinenbau GEROLD GmbH & Co. KG (Nettetal/Germany) and photovoltaic module maker solarnova® Produktions- und Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH (Wedel/Germany) have teamed up to provide a fullservice PVmodule manufacturing system solution. The product, launched in conjunction with 25th EUPVSEC in Valencia, is branded pvsavvy- fab.

pvsavvyfab brings together GEROLD's equipment manufacturing expertise with solarnova®'s impressive trackrecord of photovoltaic production knowhow, from >30 years in their respective sectors.

The product is targeted at foreign photovoltaic market players that want to do away with shortages in module supply, wish to expand vertically, or simply seek after independence and ways to grow their businesses successfully.

pvsavvyfab's concept is designed to empower prospective module manufacturers to leap to module marketability. Learningcurve, production equipment and BOMsupply access are drastically shortened.

The production lines are engineered to permit prime c-Simodule production with an annual output of e.g. 20, 40, or 60 MW/p, respectively.

The value proposition includes product knowhow, production line, supply chain access, training, consulting, and aftersalesservices.

About solarnova®:

solarnova® is an innovative company with decades of experience on the photovoltaic sector. The company has strong roots, as solarnova® was a spinoff from AEG's solar technology division (subsequently DASA and ASE) where leading expertise in this field was developed since the end of the 1950s. Corresponding solar generators saw global use in terrestrial installations and in aerospace.

This pioneering spirit and corresponding knowhow came with the team when solarnova® was set up in 1996 and has been constantly expanded ever since. The company is active in production and sales of solar modules, project planning and engineering services to cover all aspects of solar technology.
