Q-Cells launches independent production of its Q.Peak module on its new 130MW production line


  • QCE

Ten years to the day that Q-Cells manufactured its  first solar cell, the company has revealed that it is independently launching production of its Q.Peak high-performance module at its Solar Valley Thalheim headquarters. The new production line was commissioned on July 25 holding a 130MWp production capacity and will produce the Q.Peak modules from monocrystalline solar cells made in Germany.

“Ten years ago, Q-Cells started producing solar cells. Now we are taking  another step forward, manufacturing our first Q.Peak high-performance module,” said Nedim Cen, CEO of Q-Cells. 'We are investing €17 million in expanding our production expertise. This strengthens our position as a  technology leader and boosts the Solar Valley Thalheim site.”

At its full capacity, the production line will produce 1,400 solar modules per day and 511,000 modules a year. The monocrystalline Q.Peak modules will be available with an output rating from 245Wp to 260Wp.

    Forecasting the evolution of a young, dynamic industry is by definition an uncertain business, and solar is no exception. Rarely, if ever, do the numbers broadcast by any of the various bodies involved in the PV prediction game tally, and even historical deployment rates remain the subject of hot debate. The paradox is that getting forecasts broadly right is going to become increasingly important over the next few years, particularly for those involved in producing the equipment that will support whatever levels of demand come to pass.
