• National-recognized Enterprise Technology Center01
    • Introduction

    • The Enterprise Technology Center of Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “the Center”), which passed the national certification in September, 2008, has carried out the development of several scientific research projects every year and made plentiful and substantial achievements through eight years’ efforts. During the technical innovation and construction of recent years, the Center, focusing on the enterprise development strategy planning, and facing the frontier science and technology of the development of the photovoltaic industry and the industry chain, has positively formulated and implemented the enterprise technology innovation strategy and exerted itself to do construction in aspects of innovative platforms, technological innovation, and talent training, on the basis of independent scientific and technological innovation, with the emphasis on the improvement of the overall technological level of the photovoltaic industry and the key point at the building of the team of scientific and technological talents.


      1.Construction of innovative platforms
      Construction has been done depending upon the National-recognized Enterprise Technology Center and Jiangsu (Suntech) Photovoltaic Technology Research Institute, focusing on the completion of the construction of the solar cells research & development center and the photovoltaic products inspection center. At present, the Center has internationally leading chemical laboratory, physics laboratory, photoetching laboratory, diffusion laboratory, coating laboratory, laser laboratory, and inspection & analysis laboratory, and is configured with world-class research & development and testing & inspection equipment, capable of carrying out international first-class photovoltaic technology research; and it also finishes the construction of a 20,340-m2 research & development site where over 400 sets of research & development instructions and equipment are arranged, and owns the state-of-the-art pilot-scale product line.


      The Center possesses the largest photovoltaic modules and products inspection laboratory with the most advanced inspection manners in China, which is awarded the WTDP Certificate by the UL (USA), the TDAP Certificate by the VDE (Germany), the Laboratory Accreditation Certificate by China National Accreditation Service for Conformity Assessment (CNAS), and the Gold Sun Certificate for solar photovoltaic products.
  • National Postdoctoral Scientific Research Center02
    • Introduction

    • After approved by the National Management Office for Postdoctoral Centers as the enterprise-type branch of the Postdoctoral Scientific Research Center of Wuxi New District in October 2008, the postdoctoral center of Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Suntech”) was upgraded to a national postdoctoral scientific research center as approved by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security and the National Management & Coordination Committee for Postdoctoral Scientific Research Centers in August 2010. The establishment of the postdoctoral scientific research center further facilitates the industry-university-research cooperation between enterprises and universities, expands the channels for absorbing highly-qualified talents, improves the technological innovation and management innovation levels and strengthens the core competitiveness.


      Suntech’s application for the establishment of a national postdoctoral center is one of the key steps for creating an enterprise-type scientific research entity featured by first-class technology, quality, talent, and management, which keeps a foothold in the enterprise, faces the entire industry and looks at the whole world. During recent years’ construction of the postdoctoral center, full play has been given to Suntech’s sci-tech innovation platforms such as Jiangsu Photovoltaic Energy Engineering Research Center and Jiangsu (Suntech) Photovoltaic Technology Research Institute to attract top-level sci-tech innovative talents to join Suntech, and there have been one post-doctor who is still doing studies in the postdoctoral center and two post-doctors who have completed their studies. When doing studies in the postdoctoral center, the post-doctors have fully dug the advantages of related companies and enterprises and the projects they concentrate on have been all accepted by provincial-level experts and obtained the support from Jiangsu Scientific Research Fund. Suntech gradually sets up relevant management systems and full-time staff under Suntech Research Institute, enhances the daily management over the post-doctoral scientific research center, creates favorable conditions for doctors to enter the center, and encourages post-doctors to make more contributions to the society.


  • Jiangsu (Suntech) Photovoltaic Technology Research Institute03
    • Introduction

      In July 2008, Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd. undertook the construction of “Jiangsu Scientific & Technological Development Program (Key Research & Development Organizations Construction Projects)—Jiangsu (Suntech) Photovoltaic Technology Research Institute” (hereinafter referred to as the “Research Institute”), which was based on Jiangsu Photovoltaic Energy Engineering Research Center (hereinafter referred to as the “Center”). The Research Institute will integrate and apply the research & development resources of Wuxi Suntech Power Co., Ltd. and various universities under cooperation to carrying out technological innovation activities centering on the improvement of product competitiveness, accelerate the upgrade of products, and promote the technology upgrading and the product structure adjustment in the photovoltaic industry of Jiangsu Province. The Research Institute will also organize various powers to develop the generic technology and key technology in the industry and help enterprises to solve technical difficulties as well as exploit products with independent intellectual property rights and high added values and provide various services for photovoltaic enterprises in Jiangsu Province, such as quality inspection, information management, and consultation.
      I. Hardware construction
      The Research Institute boasts internationally leading chemical laboratory physics laboratory, photoetching laboratory, diffusion laboratory, coating laboratory, laser laboratory, and inspection & analysis laboratory and such complete hardware facilities lay a solid foundation for the Research Institute to operate well in future.
      II. Construction of institutional framework
      The Research Institute carries out construction on the basis of the existing innovation mechanism of the Enterprise Technology Center which passed the national certification in September 2008, and thus it provides a platform with high starting point for the system and mechanism construction of the Research Institute and a good foundation for the successful construction of the Research Institute. During the system and mechanism construction, the Research Institute has launched a series of activities: For example, as approved by Jiangsu Provincial Science & Technology Department, the first technical committee of the Research Institute has been set up formally, with the specialized committee for research on solar cells and the specialized committee for inspection over photovoltaic products founded simultaneously as well, and on November 8, 2008, the first meeting was held during which Mr. Zhu, Head of Jiangsu Provincial Science & Technology Department, delivered an important speech and placed great expectations on the construction of the Research Institute. Experts participating in the meeting discussed and reviewed…
