Kredence partners Germany’s RENA for additive supply to Indian solar manufacturing sector


Gujarat-based PV chemical solutions provider Kredence Performance Materials has partnered with Germany’s RENA Technologies GmbH to supply additives for alkaline solar cell texturing in India. The duo will work together to offer the latest version of RENA monoTEX moderating and wetting agent for alkaline texturing of mono Si-wafers to the fast-growing photovoltaics market in India.

Under the cooperation, Kredence will provide its production facilities in India for RENA’s monoTEX products. This, in turn, will allow a fast and stable supply chain for PV customers.

“Delivery from Kredence India production site to Indian customers ensures a swift transport to customers. It is avoiding hold-ups presently occurring in supply chain and transportation of all sorts of materials worldwide,” said Bharat Bhatnagar, managing director of Kredence Performance Materials (India). “We are also preparing for the expected fast growth of the PV industry in India with its focus on monocrystalline silicon.”

Kredence performs routine sample analysis to meet the grade specification requirements, which ensures the performance of PV chemicals during the cell manufacturing process. To keep up with the pace of the expanding photovoltaic Industry, it provides “just in time“ inventory that brings a paradigm shift in supply chain management. This enhances the confidence at each level of the value chain, and with this capability, Kredence is looking to serve 15 to 17 GW requirements of wet chemistry in the next three-four years.

“The experienced team at Kredence and its large network in India enable us to help the Indian PV manufacturing base grow in the upcoming months and years,” said Ulrich Jaeger, vice president-Sales of RENA Technologies.

With a non-fossil fuel energy target of ‘500 GW by 2030,’ India is currently one of the largest growing markets for PV technology, including manufacturing equipment and materials for solar cells and modules.
