JinkoSolar Showcases its First Dual-Glass Module: “Eagle Dual”, at PV EXPO 2016 in Tokyo, Japan
JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd., a global leader in the solar PV industry, recently announced it has introduced its new dual glass module “Eagle Dual” at PV Expo in Tokyo, Japan. The Eagle Dual is by far the most efficient, durable and only framed dual glass module on the market. It is available in 60-cell and 72-cell, offering average outputs of up to 275watts and 320 watt respectively, with a maximum efficiency of 16.54%; 5 watts higher than leading competitors.
The Eagle Dual module replaces the standard back sheet with a heat-strengthened glass layer, increasing its resistance to micro-cracking, thus lowering the risk of the so-called “snail-track” generation. The dual glass design reduces module warping, potential induced degradation (PID), light induced degradation (LID), and corrosion from sand, alkali, acid, and salt mist.
The Eagle Dual is the only dual glass module to pass the PID free test under 65°C/85% RH (relative humidity) for 1000 hours. It has also passed dynamic load test, and the standard 5400Pa and 2400Pa static load test. The new dual glass module provides heavy-duty robustness and durability for harsh environments with high temperatures, humidity, strong wind and heavy snow. It can be widely used in universal installations including water floats, desert utilities, residential and commercial applications.
JinkoSolar’s Eagle Dual offers a unique framed design for a dual glass module. With the usual frameless structures, EVA is exposed to damp-heat and UV conditions, which accelerates EVA aging, yellowing and browning, and weld strip oxygenation. EVA also loses adhesion and reacts with water vapor, which leads to corrosion when being exposed to UV and humidity. The Eagle Dual is free of all the above listed risks due to the strengthened framed design.
“Our primary focus is to develop and offer high quality, high performance products and solutions that are tailored to local demands in Japan,” said Dany Qian, VP of Branding for JinkoSolar. “We believe our framed and higher output dual glass module will support our commitment of a 30-year high yield and reliable performance. We at JinkoSolar have a great understanding of the industry needs, and are dedicated to provide our customers with long-term peace-of-mind solutions.” said Dany Qian, VP of JinkoSolar. JinkoSolar Japan operates sales offices in Tokyo and Osaka, and has a dedicated technical support center in Tokyo.
