The OLED Lighting production line built by Moser Baer and UDC will cost $20 million

Back in January we reported the UDC and Moser Baer will build an OLED Lighting pilot production line, based around Universal Display's PH-OLED technology. $8.3 million was awarded by the DOE for this project (UDC will receive $4 million out of it). The first pilot line (out of two) will begin operation in 2011.

Today we have some new information about this interesting project. The entire investment will be $20 million, with Moser Baer Technologies (the US division of Moser Baer) investing $11.5 million to purchase production equipment. The pilot line will be built in Canandaigua, New York at the Smart System Technology & Commercialization Center (or STC) in the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering's (CNSE). STC is in charge of building the cleanroom space for the pilot lines.
