GSHK Solar is the only manufacturer in full-scale production of CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium (di)Selenide) PV cells on a flexible substrate. The Company is dedicated to constantly improving the efficiency of its solar cells and overall manufacturing process. GSHK achieved 17% average solar cell efficiency, the first CIGS company to reach this milestone in a production environment. GSHK Solar deposits CIGS on flexible, stainless-steel substrate via a roll-to-roll process. The Company's advanced machinery design decreases manufacturing costs by streamlining CIGS production, increasing throughput and improving material utilization.
The company uses copper indium gallium diselenide to produce CIGS cells, which achieve up to 19.9% efficiency in laboratory and production cells of about 12-17 percent average efficiency. This type of solar cell is ideal for portable power and is 1.5 to 2X greater in performance than comparable thin film flexible solar materials. GSHK Solar opened in 1994 and in 2008 finished another phase of development as it expanded its CIGS production to a new 100 MW facility in Mudu, China. The company expects to produce 100 megawatts of the films at the plant in 2008 before ramping up to 250 megawatts of capacity in 2012 and 500 megawatts by 2019 with its new manufacturing plant in Istanbul, Turkey.
GSHK Solar has commenced the production of GaAs solar cells which is proven to be the most efficient solar cells in the market from 28 % efficiency to 34% efficiency. The launch of the product will be announced shorty after June 2018
The new offices in Brazil, will principally service all the South American Countries for 2017 moving forward. This makes GSHK Solar the largest full-scale manufacturer of CIGS thin-film photovoltaics in the world. Said, Kevin Shultz CEO of GSHK Solar;
Mr. Shultz has taken this positon from June 2018, as Mr. Naseer Sayed has retired from the company as of May 2018. Mr. Sayed was one of the founder the organization and will be an advisor for the GSHK Holding Inc.
