Spire Corporation , a global solar company providing capital equipment and turnkey manufacturing lines to produce and characterize photovoltaic (PV) modules, today announced the shipment of multiple solar simulators to various customers in China.
Recent shipments to China include Spire’s workhorse SPI-SUN SIMULATORTM 4600SLP, Spire’s enhanced accuracy SPI-SUN SIMULATORTM5600SLP, and Spire’s advanced SPI-SUN SIMULATORTM 5600SLP Blue with spectrally matched content from 300 nm to 400 nm wavelengths. All of this equipment was provided to Tier 1 manufacturers.
Strength of sales is driven by the local presence of Spire’s distributor in China, Servo Dynamics Company, which provides local support in both sales and service. Spire’s partnership with Servo Dynamics Company has led to sales of 180 simulators during the last several years of partnership. Spire has also recently received additional orders for multiple solar simulators that will ship during the coming several months.
“Spire is pleased to continue our strong presence and support to our important clients in China. Module manufacturers understand that module revenues, sold on a per-watt basis, suffer from inaccurate power measurements from less accurate test equipment. Spire simulators’ demonstrated accuracy and reliability have been proven around the world, and make it one of the most popular simulator series in China,” said Mr. Rodger W. LaFavre, President and CEO of Spire Corporation.
