Major metallization paste producer Heraeus Photovoltaics said its recently launched ‘SOL9631’ Series front-side metallization paste had been adopted by leading ‘Silicon Module Super League member, JinkoSolar.
Heraeus noted that the latest collaboration with JinkoSolar produced the ‘SOL9631J’ version of the new paste series, provided more than a 0.1% gain in solar cell conversion efficiency. This was made possible by improved electrical conductivity and fine-line printing technology with higher aspect ratio and better printability.
JinkoSolar’s CEO, Chen Kangping said, "Through our highly successful partnership, JinkoSolar and Heraeus have been able to jointly develop this new-generation of Heraeus silver metallization paste and successfully integrate it into JinkoSolar’s mass production process, thereby greatly improving the conversion efficiency of their solar cells.”
Heraeus also noted that the new paste had proved its manufacturability for high-speed printing, which provided improved production line productivity and total production capacity at JinkoSolar.
“This testifies to the substantive progress of our strategic cooperation with JinkoSolar,” added Andreas Liebheit, President Heraeus Photovoltaics. “Heraeus constantly [innovates] our products and technologies, including customized photovoltaic products and services for JinkoSolar, to enable its next generation of products to advance further. We are convinced that this collaboration with our strategic partner JinkoSolar opens up new prospects for Heraeus’ customized products in the photovoltaic industry.”
If you are a solar park owner, investor, or O&M engineer looking for ways to increase the power output of your older solar parks, DSM’s Retrofit AR coating is the turnkey solution for you. To find out how it can maximize power yield and increase your cashflow in 2020, join this webinar, where DSM and its ecosystem partners will discuss all the relevant features of this technology from the perspective of investors, maintenance engineers, and asset owners. The Retrofit AR coating, an offspring of DSM’s industry-leading Anti-Reflective coating, gives older, uncoated solar modules an instant power boost of up to 3%. Application is fast and reliable. Commercially launched in 2019, it has already been applied to 50MWp of installations in Europe, representing a strong vote of confidence for this innovative technology.
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.
