Solar Press UK has inked a long term partnership agreement with Germany-based Kroenert to develop and sell turn-key manufacturing solutions for Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) modules.

As per the agreed terms, the company will develop and optimize its production process as well as inking formulations to enable the manufacture of commercial OPV modules while employing Kroenert’s production coating and printing equipment.

Commenting on the deal Solar Press CEO Chris Harris highlighted quality of coating and printing production equipment provided by Kroenert, which is ideally suited to volume OPV production.

"The partnership agreement with KROENERT represents an important step in building the necessary eco-system of partners to realise the delivery of turn-key production systems for manufacturing OPV modules using Solar Press," opined Harris.

Kroenert New Products sales director Frank Schaefer added, "We are convinced that by partnering with Solar Press we can offer a turn-key OPV production solution that minimizes the investment required by customers wishing manufacture OPV modules and products."

Additionally, Kroenert will further minimize its machinery hardware to maximize the capability of the specific Solar Press OPV production process technology.
