Q CELLS will introduce its highest power and highest efficiency solar modules to date into European markets over the coming weeks.

As part of the Q.PEAK DUO-G9 series, three high-density modules will be launched, all of which feature Q.ANTUM DUO Z Technology, where gaps between the cells are closed to increase module efficiency in relative terms by 4%, delivering an overall efficiency of up to 21.1%, Q CELLS said.

The Q.PEAK DUO ML-G9 version has 132 half-cells to deliver a module power output of up to 395Wp. The larger Q.PEAK DUO XL-G9.3 increases the number of cells from 144 half-cells in previous iterations to 156 half-cells, delivering a power output of up to 465 watts. This XL version is 8.3cm longer, but only 1kg heavier and the same width as previous products.

A third version of the Q.ANTUM DUO Z range has also been developed by to specifically serve the needs of Europe’s residential rooftop markets. The Q.PEAK DUO BLK-G9 features 120 half-cells to deliver up to 345Wp of power and 20.8% overall efficiency. Q CELLS said that with a weight of 17.5 kg, the modules “can be more easily installed on rooftops”.

Further innovations featured in the Q.ANTUM DUO Z range include the use of 12 round wires to connect the cells, and larger wafers measuring 161.7 mm in size. These ingredients combine to deliver Q CELLS’ “most advanced monocrystalline solar module to date”, the company said.

“By focusing our efforts on closing the cell gaps, we offer to our customers a module range that is perfectly fit for purpose: it boasts extremely high power and efficiency, but is not much oversized nor unwieldy, striking an ideal balance between performance and ease of installation, thus ensuring a supremely competitive LCOE,” Maengyoon Kim, head of EU sales for Q CELLS, said.

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.
