- Q Cells has launched 2 new variants of its Q.Peak Duo series, with larger wafer size for European market
- The Q.Peak Duo XL-G10 module has a power output of up to 495W for ground mounted systems and efficiency of 21.6%
- Peak Duo ML-G10 with 20.9% efficiency has a maximum power output of 415W, and is targeted for rooftop solar segment
Solar module manufacturer Q Cells has expanded its Q.Peak Duo series of solar panels with the launch of 2 new variants for the European market, calling these as its most powerful products to date. The Korean company already has its Q.Peak Duo-G9 in this series.
For the G10 series, it has uses M6 or 166mm wafer size. The 156 half-cell module is called Q.Peak Duo XL-G10, offering up to 495W for ground mounted systems. It claims for this product to generate up to 20% more module power than a standard module with 156 half-cells. Q Cells counts its maximum efficiency level going up to 21.6%.
It also has a smaller version with 132 half-cells. The Q.Peak Duo ML-G10 comes with a power output of up to 415W. Touting TUV Rheinland’s Quality Controlled PV certificate for this one, Q Cells claims it is one of the most powerful rooftop modules for installations on residential buildings. It offers a power conversion efficiency of 20.9%.
For both the variants, it has used zero-gap technology. The black version of the G10 series called Q.Peak Duo BLK-G10 will be available for sale in Europe in H2/2022.
“There is a clear trend in the solar industry towards larger cells based on M6 and more recently M10 wafers. To meet this demand, Q CELLS has developed the Q.PEAK DUO G10 series,” said Q Cells CTO Daniel Jeong. “The larger dimensions mean that each individual module has a very high energy yield – complemented by the zero-gap cell arrangement to ensure the highest efficiency and performance.”
