Silex Bridgewater project on track

Australia-based CPV technology developer, Silex has reported that it is on track with its construction of a 0.5MW demonstration facility in Bridgewater, Victoria, which it expects to be complete by the third quarter of this year. The company is specialising in the development of dense array-based CPV cells for implementation in utility scale electricity generation following its acquisition of Solar Systems Group's IP and patent assets, manufacturing and demonstration facilities.

Siilex is also upgrading and commissioning its 500MW module manufacturing plant in Melbourne and targeting new markets including the US and the Middle East. It is making inroads into the international market in the USA and the Middle East. The company is also establishing a $500,000 in-house reliability test laboratory, and is developing CPV multi-junction cells with the help of two commercial cell vendors.
