SK invests in one of the most promising next generation’s solar cell businesses, thin film CIGS technology.

SK TIC(Technology Innovation Center) and SK Innovation announced on 19th that they are jointly investing in HelioVolt(Austin, Texas) which owns their own next generation’s photovoltaic technology to manufacture CIGS(Copper Indium Gallium Selenide) based solar cell.

Thin film CIGS solar cell is known as a promising technology to overcome fundamental production cost of “crystal solar cell” with simpler process and fewer raw materials consumption.

SK sees potential and invests in HelioVolt because of its high efficient and cost competitive CIGS solar cell production process technology.

“SK TIC and SK Innovation will invest 50 million US dollar as start to confirm HelioVolt’s CIGS solar cell production technology. If the feasibility checks out, additional investment will be made for additional pilot test and commercialization” commented SK executive.

SK Group has been focused in material business for solar cell while harnessing its might as world’s one and only company to produce every kind of films for solar cell; polyester film, fluorine film, EVA sheet, and EVA back sheet by SKC, poly silicon wafer by SKC Solmics.

Since SK is investing in CIGS solar cell manufacturing technology ultimately for commercializing next generation’s solar cell, Korea solar cell industry is likely to gain competitiveness in the future.
