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.”
Join this webinar, presented by Andrea Viaro, Head of Technical Service Europe from Jinko Solar, the initiative partner of this webinar, as he outlines the key features and benefits of using ultra high performance modules. Viaro will discuss how Jinko Solar’s new technology innovations impact the LCOE and IRR of the PV utility-scale power plants. Viaro will be joined by Athanasios Bakalis, Group Technical Director and Nikos Sokos, General Manager MEA and Central Asia of METKA EGN, who will present a currently announced 300MW project in Spain, that will be fully powered by Jinko’s Cheetah modules and will deliberate potential cost benefits and risk assessment of the utility scale projects and what drove METKA EGN to choose Jinko’s ultra-high efficiency modules. Rubén Ron, Head of Section Solar. Iberia and LATAM, will discuss an impact of the reliability and bankability of solar panels and how world-class best practices in manufacturing and upholding stringent quality standards, coupled with the use of field-proven components can help protect solar investments.
