Mono module manufacturer LONGi Solar has unveiled a PERC bifacial module at the SNEC exhibition in Shanghai.

The 72-cell version of the Hi-MO2 panel has a power output of 360-365W. According to LONGi, the front side cells will operate with a 21% efficiency. The rearside of the module will have an efficiency not less than 75% of the front.

Bifacial modules have emerged as a key technology theme at SNEC this year with a host of manufacturers launching new products. LONGi confirmed in a statement that it had reached “mass production” of the Hi-MO2 modules making it more than an attention-grabbing release scheduled to coincide with a trade show.

“Hi-MO2 extends the strengths of mono PERC to the backside of the module, and can achieve higher power and higher energy yield without increasing costs, which will help decrease the LCOE, and bring more value for PV power plant investors,” said Li Wenxue, president of LONGi Solar.

“LONGi has the confidence to continuously provide high efficiency monocrystalline PV products with the best cost performance ratio for global customers, to use technology to speed up progress towards grid parity, and to make more contributions to improving environment condition,” he added.

LONGi has launched its Hi-MO N module, the company's first bifacial module with N-type TOPCon cells, designed to deliver ultra- high value and lower LCOE to utility-scale PV power plants. This PV TechTalk Product Series webinar will provide an overview of the module’s technology and how the introduction of n-type technologies will provide efficiency and performance gains for solar project developers.
