North Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 28, 2018) - Aurora Solar Technologies Inc. (TSXV: ACU) (OTC Pink: AACTF) (FSE: A82) ("Aurora") ("Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed an evaluation agreement with another Silicon Module Super League member in China. The purpose of the agreement is to document the capabilities of Aurora's Decima Gemini measurement system and Veritas visualization system for this major producer's new bifacial solar cell production facilities. Under the agreement, Aurora will install and calibrate a Decima 3T Gemini System on the producer's new bifacial production line and provide the Veritas process mapping software on an evaluation basis. Aurora will then work with the producer's process engineers to document the accuracy, repeatability and ability to measure the properties of the bifacial cells.
The system is expected to be delivered in early June with a commercial decision expected after a three-month evaluation period. This is the third Super League member either evaluating or purchasing Aurora's unique technology for advanced cell production lines. In addition to making significant inroads in the bifacial area, Aurora has received several recent requests to provide volume quotations from major producers of Passivated Emitter Rear Cells (PERC) based in China with decisions expected in the next several months. Aurora remains focused on creating a new global standard for the measurement and control of advanced solar cell structures and is encouraged by the growing list of leading Chinese manufacturers interested in Aurora's infrared, non-contacting quality control solutions which can be seen at the Shanghai New Energy Conference Exhibition (SNEC), May 28-30, booth number E3-653.
