WUXI, China | NEWS RELEASE —
Wuxi Suntech has introduced its new HyPro product line. The average mass production cell efficiency of HyPro can reach up to 20.5% with the PERC technology.
Suntech has made an initial shipment of 236kW of the HyPro module in March. The module will be available globally this July, for both commercial and residential projects.
“We’re very excited to add the HyPro to our portfolio of high efficiency PV modules. This four busbar module recently attained the VDE QT (Quality Tested) certification,” said Xiong Haibo, president of Suntech. “This PV technology is part of Suntech’s new generation of PV products that are cost efficient and energy efficient. The module sustains a higher power output of 200W/m2 compared to conventional modules in weak lighting conditions. We are proud to begin offering these enhanced modules to our customers around the world.”
At peak performance, the HyPro 60 cell module can produce an optimal 290W, whereas the HyPro 72 cell module can produce up to a high 345W. As a four busbar module design, the HyPro has a lower probability of micro-cracks and hotspots, making the modules less susceptible to malfunctions that lead to significant power degradation. The HyPro model caters to markets that require high efficiency and durability under dynamic solar conditions such as the UK and Japan.
Suntech was recently named a tier 1 solar company on Bloomberg New Energy Finance’s (BNEF) February 2015 Global PV Market Outlook list, based on its bankability.
Suntech will be present at SNEC’s International Solar Energy and Green Building Conference and Exhibition in Shanghai from April 28-30, 2015. It will be introducing the HyPro module, along with five other products: an anti-glaring module designed for airports, railways, and highway; a carbon nanotube plastic frame PV module, which is cost-saving and corrosion resistant; a double glass, transparent module designed for agricultural greenhouse projects; an integrated AC module designed for the residential market; and a standard module suitable for both rooftop installments and utility projects. All six products are PID free, provide high performance yields in low lighting conditions, and come with Suntech’s 10 year product warranty. Visit Suntech this week at SNEC, booth N2-530.
