Hanwha SolarOne expands polycrystalline portfolio with black edition module
05. NOVEMBER 2013 | BY: HANWHA SOLARONE
New polycrystalline module combines performance and durability with new aesthetics standards.
Hanwha SolarOne, a global provider of photovoltaic solar solutions and flagship company of top-10 Korean business enterprise Hanwha Group, has expanded its European portfolio with a polycrystalline module featuring a black frame and a black backsheet: the HSL 60 Poly - Black Edition.
Designed to meet new aesthetic standards as well as the rooftop segment's efficiency and yield expectations, the new module incorporates the recognized high-quality features of the latest Hanwha Solar module generation, the HSL series, which was successfully introduced in June.
"Conditions within the European solar industry are changing significantly, but our dedication to the success of our customers and partners remains unchanged," said Maengyoon Kim, managing director of Hanwha SolarOne GmbH. "Adding value for our customers was at the top of our minds when developing the HSL 60 Poly - Black Edition module. It combines the resilience of our products with a refined black finish."
Designed for European Conditions
The HSL 60 Poly - Black Edition incorporates the Hanwha SolarOne portfolio’s high-durability features and has been tested and certified to withstand snow loads of up to 7,000 Pascal (~710 kg/m²) as well as wind loads of up to 4,000 Pascal (~210 km/h). On cloudy days, the modules demonstrate one of the HSL series’ highlights: the weak-light performance is exceeding 96 percent of Standard Test Conditions (STC) efficiency at 200 W/m2, which is among the best in the industry.
Furthermore, the module features high transmission anti-reflective glass that comes with improved self-cleaning functionality to ensure optimum solar exposure for the solar cells.
The new HSL 60 Poly - Black Edition module is available from our European warehouse as of November.
if Solarcity ramp up their capacity, it means Solarone will provide more panel to them....
we all know what happened to Solarcity PP lately. Solarone will follow...
Module manufacturer Hanwha Q Cells has completed its first year of operations with ramped up production capacities and reduced production costs. The company is now aiming for positive full-year figures for 2014
Bitterfeld-Wolfen based Hanwha Q Cells reports a positive first year since the official start of the company on October 16, 2012. The company has managed to ramp up exisiting production capacities in its global manufacturing sites, namely with its Malaysian plant seeing an increase from 800 to more than 900 MW. The total production capacity is now 1.1 GW. "We have made important steps in fully utilizing our capacities in all plants while increasing the efficiency of our production sites, thus reducing production costs significantly," stated CEO Charles Kim.
The company managed to maintain strong business in the European domestic markets and has also entered the Japanese market. For example, the company reported supplying a 4.5 MW project in France in September and a 60 MW order from Japan in July this year.
On the products front, Hanwha Q Cells introduced its new G3 product series, including Q.PRO, Q.PEAK solar modules and the Q.FLAT system for flat rooftops. Reduction of production costs and increasing performance and quality of products were said to be the company's biggest challenges. With the new products, Hanwha Q Cells reported that expectations have been exceeded. Additionally the Q.ANTUM cell technology is also apparently doing well yielding attractive LCOE.
The company remains positive about the future. Hanwha Q Cells is currently seeking more than 50 new employees to join its team.
Hanwha SolarOne, a global provider of total photovoltaic (PV) solar solutions and a flagship company of the top-10 Korean business enterprise Hanwha Group, has supplied 8.2 MWp of PV modules to the Schlechtenberg solar park in Germany. The park, developed by AIC Projects GmbH, was inaugurated in September.
The solar park is integrated well into the Allgaeu landscape in a rural area near Sulzberg, close to highway A7. Due to the moist conditions of the moor-like landscape around Schlechtenberg, the area is not well-suited for agricultural activity, but is a good fit for solar energy generation. With more than 33,000 modules installed, the solar park is expected to generate 9.84 million kWh annually, thereby covering the electricity demand of 2,000 households.
"Benefiting from the vast experience of AIC Projects, the park's owners were able to connect the installation to the grid just a few months after receiving the legal permits, which is very impressive for a project of this size," said Thomas Junghans, Account Manager at Hanwha SolarOne GmbH. "We are proud to have contributed to yet another successful solar park developed by AIC Projects."
Streamlined processes and high quality products
AIC Projects develops and operates solar parks around the world. The company developed the Schlechtenberg park on behalf of a private investor, who has initiated five additional solar parks built in the Allgäu region in Bavaria. Several of the projects have been open to citizen co-financing. AIC Projects will oversee operating and maintenance of the park on behalf of the client.
"Financial conditions for large-scale solar projects in Germany have become extremely challenging and as a consequence, streamlined project planning and execution are absolutely crucial to secure profitability," said Matthias Gerhardt, Head of Project Development & Project Management at AIC Projects GmbH. "The choice of module supplier is decisive to secure maximum return of investment. We can rel
