Sharp Energy Solutions Europe and Eco Solar Rays have agreed a partnership for the distribution of photovoltaic modules for C&I solar projects in Sri Lanka.
Sharp has been a driving force behind the use of photovoltaic technologies for more than 60 years and has delivered more than 50 million PV modules worldwide. Eco Solar Rays is a world-class EPC and O&M contractor for domestic and utility-scale solar power projects in Sri Lanka. Building on its extensive experience of medium to large-scale projects, the company is well positioned to meet the challenges of the rapidly growing Sri Lankan solar market.
There has been growing interest in Sharp’s new 540W module with 0/+5% positive tolerance and 15-year product and 25 year linear performance warranty of 85%. The NU-JD540 has an efficiency of 20.89% and is designed for a system voltage of up to 1,500V, using 144 M10 wafer size half-cells and 10 bus bar technology. The module has a low temperature coefficient of -0.341%/°C, which is extremely important in warm ambient temperatures and has obtained IEC seals 61215, 61730 and 61701, together with certifications for ammonia (IEC62716) and sand and dust (IEC60068).
“With Sharp modules, Eco Solar Rays offers its customers the quality of an historic brand,”commented Sivagnanam Sanjeevan, Director at Eco Solar Rays. “In a time of uncertainty and major changes in the market, I believe the reliability that Sharp and Eco Solar Rays can guarantee together is of great value here in Sri Lanka.”
Andrew Lee, Sales Director, SHARP Energy Solutions Europe, added: ”We are very pleased about the partnership with Eco Solar Rays, which gives both parties a strong alliance to continue growth together in Sri Lanka. Our NU-JD540 half-cut cell 540W panel is ideal for Eco Solar Rays’ partners, focusing on residential and C&I rooftop installations. We want to enable customers to achieve the lowest possible LCOE and have therefore created panels for efficient energy generation, high reliability and low BOS and CapEx costs. The NU-JD540 perfectly combines these characteristics to the benefit of each PV system.”
