Hanwha Q CELLS Celebrate One Billion Solar Cells Produced
Hanwha Q CELLS have announced the commercial mass production of Q.ANTUM solar cell No. 1,000,000,000. The record cell was produced in the company´s manufacturing facility in Jincheon, Korea, on Monday, July 10, 2017. Q.ANTUM is Hanwha Q CELLS´ proprietary cell technology. It is based on the passivation of the solar cell´s rear side (PERC) and a number of additional technological features for higher yields and lower LCOE under real life conditions.
Q.ANTUM has been developed in the company´s Center for Technology, Innovation and Quality in Germany, where it since has been improved continuously. The technology has been in commercial mass production since 2012. As of today, Hanwha Q CELLS has commercially mass produced a total volume of around 5 gigawatts of Q.ANTUM solar cells.
Seong-woo Nam, CEO of Hanwha Q CELLS, commented: "Having achieved one billion of commercially mass produced Q.ANTUM solar cells is an outstanding milestone for our company and a powerful demonstration of Hanwha Q CELLS´ leadership in solar industry." Looking to the future, CEO Nam said: "As our core technology platform, we will continue to develop and push Q.ANTUM technology to achieve even higher yields and lower LCOE for our customers."
Q.PEAK-G4: MONOCRYSTALLINE Q.ANTUM RANGE The monocrystalline Q.ANTUM module range Q.PEAK-G4 is the flagship module line of Hanwha Q CELLS and was introduced to global solar markets in early 2017. It offers high-end performance, top yields in real life conditions and low LCOE. It comes in different product specifications suited to various local markets around the globe. Q.PEAK modules also feature excellent stability and are tested for wind loads up to 4,000 Pa and snow loads up to 5,400 Pa. At the same time the frame design has been optimized with a frame height of 32 mm, leading to a 10% reduction in logistics and storage costs.
