In conjunction with the opening of their new production line, Raynergy Tek – world leader in organic semiconductor chemistry – and ASCA – an ARMOR GROUP company, the organic photovoltaics (OPV) global leader – are strengthening their long-lasting partnership through signing an extended cooperation agreement. On this occasion, an ASCA OPV structure has been installed at the new production premises of Raynergy Tek in Taiwan. In order to manifest the progress made together in the last years, the companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the objective to upscale Raynergy Tek´s newest semiconductor materials. To meet the growing demand for OPV, Raynergy will commission the new production line in November this year.

The German inverter expert KOSTAL Solar Electric is strengthening its engagement in Scandinavia. From now on, together with the renewable energy company Novus Energy Sweden AB, KOSTAL Solar Electric will be offering after-sales service in Swedish and English to electricians in Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. “Our after-sales service for Scandinavia was previously managed from Germany. I am very pleased that we can now offer our customers technical support from Swedish technicians,” says Leif Svantesson, Country Sales Manager Scandinavia at KOSTAL Solar Electric.
ASCA – an ARMOR GROUP company, the organic photovoltaics (OPV) global leader – is, among other things, currently setting up a new laser production equipment for late-stage customization of its OPV offerings. The commissioning is planned for towards end of the year. With the new setup, ASCA will be able to respond to even larger-scale projects and offer new solar energy applications more rapidly than before. By investing in industrialization and IP licensing, ASCA reduces market adoption barriers and increases competitiveness to support the OPV industry in whole Europe.
The Austrian manufacturer of PV mounting solutions AEROCOMPACT has added a new hanger bolt set to its CompactPITCH modular system. Since it has improved the angle attachment of the CompactPITCH XWS, PV mounting rails can be positioned directly above the hanger bolt – in contrast to the current solution. “The centric load application in the axial direction of the hanger bolt prevents a superimposed bending moment. This improves the system’s ability to withstand high snow and wind loads,” explains Philipp Pejcl, product manager at AEROCOMPACT. The hanger bolt can be used for installing solar systems on corrugated fibre cement and trapezoidal sheet metal roofs.
For its large-scale and commercial storage systems, storage expert INTILION has developed open interfaces that allow the systems to be connected to charging stations in a standardised manner. This year, Stromnetz Hamburg will be the first in the world to integrate INTILION’s battery storage systems into its intelligent IT backend for electromobility, eRound.
ASCA – an ARMOR Group company and the organic photovoltaics (OPV) global leader – is partnering with Epishine, a key player in the development and production of printed organic solar cells for indoor use, to strengthen and further develop the worldwide OPV market. ASCA recently acquired the most relevant intellectual property (IP) portfolio on printed OPV, and the companies have signed a licensing agreement to begin sharing it at the beginning of April. The contract will enable the Swedish-based manufacturer Epishine to further improve its organic indoor light energy harvesting solar modules.
Owing to their shape, conventional roof hooks for tiled roofs can only transfer limited loads into the roof substructure. The new XM-P series from the manufacturer of PV mounting solutions AEROCOMPACT, however, can transfer higher loads by combining roof hooks and sheet metal replacement tiles. Thanks to its design, the heavy-duty stainless steel bracket can be positioned directly in the direction of force on a purlin and can withstand snow loads of up to 4.7 kN.
AEROCOMPACT – the international expert for PV mounting solutions – has developed a quick mounting hook for PV systems on pitched roofs. The new CompactPITCH XT35-VLOW (vlow stands for very low) is particularly suitable for Mediterranean roof types: The base plate is very flat (low) at 20 millimetres, which is why the aluminium hook can be optimally used with flat battens, e.g. with monk and nun or Portoghese tiles.
INTILION, a company based in Paderborn, Germany, is the world’s first manufacturer to offer the option of a fire protection housing for its scalestac indoor commercial energy storage system.
ASCA – an ARMOR Group company, the organic photovoltaics (OPV) global leader, has purchased the most relevant device- and module-related intellectual property (IP) portfolio regarding printed OPV. At the end of 2021, ASCA took patents on OPV production and technology from the Darmstadt, Germany-based leading science and technology company Merck. With this purchase, ASCA has become the largest portfolio owner with regard to printed OPV worldwide through tripling its number of patents.
