Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd. is a manufacturer of photovoltaic solar cells with headquarters in Seoul, South Korea and for technology and innovation in Thalheim, Germany. The current company was created in February 2015 by combining Hanwha SolarOne and Hanwha Q CELLS. It is a subsidiary of the Hanwha Group.

Hanwha Q CELLS says it aware of the patent infringement lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware by REC Group.

The company adds that REC’s alleged complaints and the patent are without technical and legal merit.

That the technology mentioned in REC’s statement only pertains to the arrangement of solar components within a solar module, which is utilized by most module manufacturers in the industry, and that the patent was registered in August 2020.

Hanwha Q CELLS says it intends to file a PGR (Post Grant Review) to challenge the validity of the concerned patent.

Hanwha concludes by saying it is confident to succeed in proving the invalidity of REC’s patent in the U.S.
