Wuxi, China, April 24, 2015/Press Release/: Wuxi Suntech announced today the introduction of its new HyPro product line. The average mass production cell efficiency of HyPro can reach 20.5% with PERC technology. Suntech has made an initial shipment of 236kW of the HyPro module in March. The module will be available globally this July, and it is perfect for both commercial and residential projects.
“We’re very excited to add the Hypro to our portfolio of high efficiency PV modules. The module has attained the VDE QT (Quality Tested) certification recently. ” 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 higher power output at 200W/m2 compared to conventional module in weak lighting conditions. We are proud to begin providing these enhanced modules to our customers around the world.”
At peak performance, the Hypro 60 cell can produce an optimal 290W, whereas the Hypro 72 cell 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 on Bloomberg New Energy Finance’s (BNEF) February 2015 Global PV Market Outlook list as a tier 1 solar company, 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 at Suntech’s booth N2-530. Apart from the Hypro, Suntech will showcase other five products: an Anti-glaring module designed for the airport, railway and highway, which is reduced the reflectivity to 3%; a carbon nanotube plastic frame PV modules, which delivers a great cost-saving advantage over the traditionally-used aluminum module frames and has the ability to resist corrosion; a double glass module designed for agriculture green house project that can provide 20% transparency; an integrated AC module designed for the residential market, which produces additional energy yield with less installation and maintenance cost, and a standard module, which is suitable for both rooftop and utility project. The products are all PID free and have great performance in low light conditions. All of the products come with Suntech’s 10-year product warranty and excellent customer service.
