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.
