- REC Group has launched its 4th generation modules under TwinPeak Series
- TwinPeak4 series modules have 120 half-cut monocrystalline P-type cells, multi-busbar connection and power output of up to 375 W
- It plans to start production of these panels in May 2021 and start commercial operations from July/August 2021
REC Group has launched its latest version of solar modules in the TwinPeak series calling it TwinPeak 4 as the 4th generation product. The Singapore based cell and module manufacturer said it will go into production in May 2021 and start commercial deliveries from July/August 2021 onwards.
The manufacturer explains TwinPeak 4 Series modules come with a new cell structure design having 120 half-cut monocrystalline P-type cells, multi busbar connection, and a nominal power out of up to 375W. Thanks to its 30mm frame and support bars, these modules can withstand higher loads of +7000 Pa.
Modules available in both white and black backsheet variants are targeted towards residential and commercial rooftop installations.
Company’s Vice President Global Marketing & Product Management Cemil Seber shared that the new series has an improved power warranty of just 2 percent maximum power degradation in the first year of operation and 0.5 percent per year thereafter until year 25.
REC Group had launched its TwinPeak Series in September 2014 for major rooftop markets globally with a rate power output of up to 275W and 17% efficiency.
It is interesting to see that REC, which has been focusing on its n-type HJT modules in the recent past, is now introducing a p-type cell based module again, which is likely a consequence of its HJT production equipment supplier Meyer Burger having turned into a cell/module producer itself and decided to keep its HJT production equipment also for internal use in the future (see Meyer Burger Solar Cell Production Plant Now Operational).
TaiyangNews just concluded a 2-day virtual conference on Very High-Power Solar Modules with leading PV manufacturers and inverter suppliers spoke at length about latest technological developments in the space and the future trends expected, including applications for residential rooftops and utility-scale solar (see Day 1 and Day 2 coverage).
