CNPV receives IEC certification for premium PV modules series


CNPV announced that ICIM/Euro Test Lab, Italy has awarded them the International Electro Technical Commission (IEC) certification for their premium PV modules series with power ranging from 190Wp to 200Wp. The modules are made with high efficiency 125x125mm mono crystalline cells and were launched and displayed at the 24th EUPVSEC in Hamburg, Germany. Currently, CNPV has shipped 8MWp of the modules to customers in Germany, France, Belgium and the Czech Republic for rooftop installations.

B. Veerraju Chaudary, CNPV’s CTO, said, “CNPV is the first in its field to attain IEC certification for and begin sale of this class of modules series. This is a tremendous achievement for CNPV and clearly demonstrates the power and versatility of the premium module series technology. The premium modules series development is part of CNPV’s extensive R&D program dedicated to continuously improving module efficiency.”

The 72-cell premium module series include large area, high-efficiency mono crystalline silicon solar cells, anti-reflection coated glass and high conductivity interconnected materials. The larger 165mm diameter of the cells, compared to the standard 150mm, is said to outperform the industry average of 8%, which equals a module efficiency of 15.25%+. Their anti-reflection coated glass guarantees transmittance at STC level and provides an additional 3% performance at field level installations. The use of soft ductile and high-conductivity interconnected ribbons warrant minimal resistive power losses both at standard testing and field levels.

CNPV backs their premium module series with their 25-year power output and 10-year product workmanship warranty. The modules in this series have been given the IEC 5400Pa certification, which authenticates their ability to withstand high wind pressure and heavy snow load. The premium modules are in production and available at 190Wp to 195Wp power rating.
