Q.PEAK Launch in Europe: HANWHA Q CELLS Introduces Monocrystalline Q.ANTUM Solar Module Series
Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd., one of the world´s largest producer of solar modules with high quality in-house solar cells, introduces the next generation of its high-performance module series Q.PEAK to PV markets in Europe. The new solar modules combine monocrystalline high-performance wafers with Hanwha Q CELLS “Engineered in Germany” Q.ANTUM cell technology. The Q.PEAK module series is now available for European customers in two variations: as Q.PEAK-G4.1 with black frame and white back sheet and as the all black Q.PEAK BLK-G4.1. The Q.PEAK-G4.1 comes in power classes ranging from 295 Wp to 305 Wp and efficiencies of up to 18.6 %, making it highly attractive for residential customers. Power classes for Q.PEAK BLK-G4.1 range from 285 Wp up to 295 Wp, with efficiencies of up to 18.0%.
“We are excited to present our new monocrystalline high-performance solar modules to residential customers in Europe”, says Maeng Yoon Kim, Head of EU Module Component Sales at Hanwha Q CELLS. “Both Q.PEAK modules belong to the most powerful 60 cell solar modules in the industry and offer highly attractive LCOE along with intriguing looks.”
Q.PEAK: High power classes, low LCOE, high durability
The Q.PEAK series combines high power classes, leading to low levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) for customers. Moreover, a special Anti LID Technology (ALT) protects Q.PEAK modules against the power loss through Light-Induced Degradation (LID). LID is a common effect leading to power losses in the early operation lifetime of conventional monocrystalline solar modules. 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 10 % reduction on logistics and storage cost compared to the previous G3 generation. The modules weigh only 18.8 kg, making them easier to handle during installation.
More than 3 GW produced: matured Q.ANTUM technology
All Q CELLS products convince with extraordinary warranty conditions and supreme performance, thanks to Q.ANTUM technology. This proprietary cell technology enables the best performance of Q CELLS modules under real life conditions – even with low radiation intensity and on clear, hot summer days. Q.ANTUM is the most advanced and matured PERC-based technology in the industry, with a track record of more than 600 million solar cells produced since 2012, equaling more than 3 GW. Combined with the Q CELLS performance and quality features like Anti PID and Anti LID technologies, Hot-Spot-Protect, Tra.Q Laser marking, Q.ANTUM leads to unmatched solar products when it comes to higher yields for longer time-periods ultimately leading to maximum security and lower LCOE on the customer´s side.
