Hanwha Q CELLS’ newest half-cell module will launch in USA later this year
Hanwha Q CELLS has launched its new solar module product, the Q.PEAK DUO-G6, in Europe and South Korea, but expects the module to be in other leading global markets later this year.
The Q.PEAK DUO-G6 is the new iteration of the Q.PEAK DUO solar modules series. This latest version of Q CELLS’s half-cell monocrystalline solar module range is manufactured with larger wafers, which boast dimensions of 161.70 mm (as opposed to the 156.75 mm wafer dimensions found in the G5 range). These larger wafers help each module deliver up to about 6% more power, meaning that the 122 cells Q.PEAK DUO-G6 version can deliver 355 Wp. In the format of 144 cells, the Q.PEAK DUO L-G6 has a power output of up to 420Wp.
The half-cut cells allow the upper and lower section of the module to operate independently, reducing the impact of shading and thereby increasing energy yields. The Q.PEAK DUO-G6 also has long-term reliability with 85% initial performance after 25 years. Furthermore, the module is manufactured using Q CELLS patent-protected passivation technology, which is a key ingredient in our Q.ANTUM Technology. Additional cutting-edge technological and security features of Q.ANTUM Technology include excellent Anti LID (light induced degradation) and Anti PID (potential induced degradation) performance, as well as Hot-Spot Protect and traceable quality with Tra.Q laser identification to protect against counterfeiting.
“Q CELLS will continue to launch higher output and quality solar modules using our proprietary Q.ANTUM Technology. The Q.PEAK DUO-G6 represents yet another step towards more accessible solar electricity for all, thanks to its higher power output,” said Hee Cheul (Charles) Kim, CEO of Q CELLS. “While we are excited to launch this latest iteration of our half-cell range, Q CELLS will continue to launch other energy solution products and new business models to meet the ever-changing customer needs across the global solar market.”
