Russia-based integrated PV manufacturer Hevel Group has completed its second phase of heterojunction (HJ) cell and module production expansions, taking nameplate capacity to 260MW.
Hevel originally converted an existing a-Si thin-film fab line to heterojunction technology in 2017, with a capacity of 160MW.
At Intersolar Europe, Hevel showcased a new HJ bifacial solar modules with a power output of up to 380Wp as well as 60-cell HJ modules with a power output of 325Wp. The company also highlighted it had achieved HJ cell conversion efficiencies of 23%.
Hevel’s current PV project pipeline was said to exceed 1GW including 379MW of projects already commissioned and 178MW to be constructed in Kazakhstan. The company secured a €56.2 million long-term multi-currency loan facility earlier in the year from the Eurasian Development Bank (EDB) to finance the construction of solar power plants with an installed capacity of up to 90MW in Kazakhstan.
The first ever event dedicated specifically to solar PV Heterojunction manufacturing and multi-GW production challenges and opportunities. Meet the global community driving Heterojunction to multi-GW status in mass production today in the spectacular setting of St. Petersburg in Russia.
The Utility Solar Summit UK will focus entirely on the opportunities in the UK ground-mount space and feature the new technology and advanced innovations allowing asset owners to improve yield in a subsidy free market. Listen to senior market leaders share stories of their successes and manufacturers pushing the envelope for solar PV whilst taking advantage of our enhanced networking features to connect you with your peers onsite; realising the potential of UK utility scale deployment from 2020 and beyond.
Going into its fifth year over 200 delegates from 150 companies and 20 countries representing the PV supply chain will gather in Malaysia to discuss the technology roadmaps for PV cell advancement in GW markets. The scope of the event has been expanded this year, to cover developments in wafer supply and thin-film investments and technologies alongside all the regular benefits to all stakeholders tracking PV technology and investment trends for the next 5 years.
Understand fully the technical and logistical supply chains that determine the production and performance of solar modules, including all related factors impacting quality, reliability & bankability.
