XsunX has signed an agreement with Praxair for the supply of bulk industrial gases for its new multi-megawatt thin film photovoltaic (TFPV) solar manufacturing facility, near Portland in Oregon.

XsunX is currently refurbishing an existing 90,000 sq. ft. building, located in Wood Village, to house its integrated TFPV manufacturing operations – according to a report by PV Tech.

“The agreement will provide for Praxair’s expertise in the design, installation, and management of our gas handling and delivery systems and a long term contract to supply the bulk of our manufacturing gas needs,” stated Mr. Tom Djokovich, CEO for XsunX.

Djokovich added, “We are pleased that such a major part of the integrated thin film TFPV manufacturing process is in good hands. Having secured gas supplies with Praxair to support a large part of our thin film TFPV manufacturing processes, we have begun to meet our short and mid term goals in the build out and supply of our multi-megawatt thin film photovoltaic solar manufacturing facility.”
