Company Information

Blaubeuren (euro adhoc) - February 28, 2013 - REC, a leading global provider of
solar electricity solutions, has placed an order with centrotherm for their
high-throughput diffusion systems for its complete 740 megawatt (MW) solar
production line in Singapore. Having successfully integrated centrotherm
diffusion technology into one of its production lines REC has decided to equip
and upgrade all remaining lines at its site in Asia. centrotherm photovoltaics
won out against its competitors with its 5-chamber diffusion furnace, which not
only offers outstanding phosphorus diffusion capabilities, but also enables the
reliable implementation of higher resistance emitters on a low-cost basis. The
throughput-optimized tube furnace is purposely designed to meet the stringent
demands of mass solar cell production and offers excellent process performance
and stability. This equipment order is valued in a higher single-digit million
Euro range.

With this step, REC will develop the next generation of high-performance solar
cells and modules, for the growing global solar market. REC's solar modules were
ranked as test-winners in terms of module output with lowest degradation over
time, according to data provided by PHOTON Laboratory in 2012. 

"centrotherm can deliver persuasively to globally leading manufacturers as its
solutions and products in the solar cell area guarantee a high level of process
security and system performance, consequently enabling the manufacturing of
state-of-the-art products", notes Dr. Josef Haase, CEO of centrotherm cell &
module, before going to add: "centrotherm's leading production technology paired
with the outstanding local support capabilities from the centrotherm Singapore
office offered the decisive benefit."
