Its Hi-MO 6 PV module uses Hybrid Passivated Back Contact (HPBC) cell technology, with LONGi claiming a maximum efficiency of 22.8% in mass production.  

In August, LONGi made a point of lauding the potential of HPBC cells as it branded TOPCon a “transitionary” technology.

HPBC is a new generation of high-efficiency solar cell technology that uses front-side busbar-free design and, according to LONGi, can considerably improve the cell’s light absorption and conversion capabilities by adjusting the cell’s internal structure, resulting in higher output.

“Modules equipped with HPBC cell technology can generate a greater volume of energy under high-temperature and low-irradiation conditions and also have superior power degradation performance,” LONGi said in a statement.

The company said that, in global power generation simulations, its Hi-MO 6 modules demonstrated a significant power generation advantages over PERC products, with “an average power generation increase of up to 10% in typical scenarios”.

The new module employs back contact soldering technology, which uses the one-line soldering structure rather than a traditional Z-shaped structure, to enhance the module’s resistance to cracking, LONGi said.

The Hi-MO 6 includes four series – Explorer, Scientist, Guardian and Artist – all of which are in the standard M10 size (182mm) and are available in 72C, 66C, 60C and 54C types. “The flagship Hi-MO series modules have contributed to upgrading global energy structure,” said LONGi’s vice president Dennis She. “The Hi-MO 6 is another solid step toward promoting energy equity.”

FREE WEBINAR -This special webinar will take a deep dive into the latest PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings pyramid, capturing the relative bankability status of the top 70-80 PV module suppliers globally. In addition to revealing the latest ranking of global PV module suppliers, PV Tech’s Head of Research, Finlay Colville, will show the depth of analysis and commentary included within the report for module suppliers. A key output from the webinar will be to learn which PV module suppliers have moved up the rankings pyramid in recent years and why this growth has been achieved. Conversely, some of the companies that have fallen down the rankings will be discussed, in particular those suffering from market-share losses and financial problems.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
