India: Vikram Solar, one of India’s leading module manufacturers and solar EPC solutions provider, launched a new line of high-efficiency MBB half-cell modules at the Renewable Energy India Expo (REI) in Greater Noida. This module series is an upgrade of Vikram Solar’s existing 5 BB half-cell module and a new addition to the Company’s product portfolio.
The modules will house 144 half-cells and would have maximum power up to 415 Wp in monocrystalline technology . This new series would be available in the market from January 2020 and would offer increased light harvesting by reducing inactive area of solar cells and internal resistance to yield higher field performance.
Mr Ivan Saha, BU Head– Manufacturing & CTO, Vikram Solar Limited informed that the next generation of advanced technology module series are built for the ever demanding new-age customers who want maximum performance, efficiency and power. “The latest launch of new series MBB by Vikram Solar is a testament of the company’s mission to continuously push boundaries of efficiency improvement in solar in India. Fitted with a higher number of busbars, our new MBB half-cell module would also reduce performance impact from micro-cracks in field, and offer lesser internal resistance by reducing space between cell bus bars leading to lower levelised cost of energy. These features will result in improved performance and durability.”
Both ELDORA & SOMERA variants (Polycrystalline and Monocrystalline) of the new module series will be commercially available from January 2020.
