[Stockholm, Sweden, May 16, 2017.] Midsummer, the Swedish leading technology provider of equipment for cost-effective manufacturing of flexible CIGS thin film solar cells, presents a record result for 2016. Revenues nearly doubled and profits increased, due to several new orders for the company's DUO thin film solar cell manufacturing system.

2016 was an eventful and successful year for Midsummer, filled with several new orders for its compact thin film solar cell manufacturing system DUO. In its Annual Report for 2016, the company announces sales revenues of 60 MSEK, up by nearly 100 percent from the previous year, and an annual profit of 10 MSEK. To meet the increased market demand the company hired 15 new employees during the latest year.
"2016 was a record year for us," said Sven Lindström, CEO, Midsummer AB. "We did some great business, and the market acceptance for our solar energy technology solutions increased, which resulted in several orders for our compact DUO thin film solar cell manufacturing system. The DUO system is now the most widely spread manufacturing tool for flexible CIGS solar cells in the world."
Midsummer is a leading developer and supplier of advanced solar energy technology solutions for the production and installation of thin film solar panels, and also a leading Swedish growth and export company; Midsummer has several times been named as one of Sweden's and Europe's fastest growing technology companies.
"We have yet again shown that we are the leading provider and supplier of advanced solar energy technology solutions for the production and installation of thin film solar panels.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
