Taiwan-based specialist PV module manufacturer WINAICO said it had starting shipping its recently launched ‘HeatCap’ modules to Japan.
WINAICO’s 48-cell 230W, WST-230M6-H module is claimed to use the world’s highest efficiency monocrystalline PERC technology, supplied by Taiwanese merchant cell producers with its in-house developed micro-crack preventing HeatCap technology with SiC (silicon carbide) that is claimed to reduce the risk of micro-crack formation in PERC cells.
“Our key customers in Japan appreciate the combination of high efficiency and reliability in WINAICO’s 230 W HeatCap solar modules” said, Loftur Thorarinsson, Representative Director of WINAICO Japan K.K. “With the combination of highest energy output and micro-crack preventing SiC technology, our customers can feel safe about the long term reliability of their solar investments.”
Module shipment quantities were not disclosed.
