Solar-konzept and Hanwha Q CELLS grid connect two solar power plants totalling 16.4 MW in northern Germany
Hanwha Q CELLS GmbH, German subsidiary of the globally leading solar module manufacturer Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd., and solar-konzept GmbH have put two solar power plants totalling 16.4 MW into operation in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany. The companies made the announcement today in a joint statement. solar-konzept GmbH has developed and built the two photovoltaic power plants on adjoining plots in the Zarrentin am Schaalsee region. Hanwha Q CELLS supplied close to 60.000 Q CELLS brand photovoltaic modules for two solar parks, where they will generate over 17,000 MWh of clean energy a year and save around 10,000 tons of CO2. The sustainable electricity from the plant is produced by Q.PLUS BFR-G4.1 Q CELLS solar modules with 275 Wp and fed into the power grid. Q CELLS modules have set themselves apart from the competition based on the superior yield which they attain even in low-light conditions and at high temperatures, thanks to Q.ANTUM technology. This lets you cut down on LCOE and increase the efficiency of your plant.
Karen Kedziora, Managing Director of solar-konzept GmbH, says: “With around 140 MW worth of completed solar projects in Germany, solar-konzept is an experienced photovoltaic developer and implementer. We know the difference that the power and quality of the solar modules make for a solar power plant. And that’s why we’re thrilled to have found such a reputable and reliable module supplier as Hanwha Q CELLS for both large projects in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.” Marco Schweitzer, Key Account Manager at Hanwha Q CELLS, commented: “We’d like to thank solar-konzept GmbH for entrusting us with this large project. Thanks to Q.ANTUM technology, our Q.PLUS BFR-G4.1 solar modules will be able to reward this trust with power and endurance”.
Q.ANTUM makes the difference
Hanwha Q CELLS developed, matured, and marketed Q.ANTUM technology. It is based on rear surface passivation of the solar cell (PERC), in which sunlight is reflected from the rear surface back into the cell, where it can be transformed into more electricity. In addition, Q.ANTUM comprises a number of other technological features. Together, they result in solar modules with significantly more power in a variety of conditions, including low-light in the morning and evening hours or in cloudy weather and at high temperatures in the summer. Q.ANTUM is arguably the most mature PERC-based technology in the photovoltaic industry. This is backed by the over 3.7 gigawatts of Q.ANTUM solar cells mass produced since 2012, as well as the latest efficiency world record set by a Q.ANTUM prototype in June 2016. The prototype was the first standard-sized multicrystalline solar module to reach 19.5% module efficiency and break the 300 W barrier.
