- Jiangsu Seraphim has introduced a new module series to its product portfolio with a maximum output of 540W
- The S4 series with 182mm half-cell is available under 2 variants of monofacial and bifacial modules with mass production to begin in Q1/2021
- It says the company is targeting an annual production capacity of around 3 GW for these modules after equipment upgrade
Jiangsu Seraphim Solar System Co., Ltd. has launched a new solar module product calling it S4 half-cell series. This series of modules has a maximum power output of up to 540W.
The Chinese solar PV module maker is offering 2 categories in this series, namely monofacial and bifacial modules with an expected annual production capacity of 3 GW after equipment upgrade. Mass production is scheduled to begin in Q1/2021. It is targeting large ground mounted solar power plants for this series.
For both these variants, Seraphim says the new S4 half-cell series has the maximum module efficiency of 21.1% which integrates 182mm large silicon wafers and passivated emitter rear cell (PERC), multi-busbar (MBB), half-cut cell and high-density packaging.
Seraphim’s S4 bifacial half-cell module, it adds, can increase electricity output from 10% to up to 30% under different ground conditions significantly lowering levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) and balance of system (BoS) costs. For the bifacial module it has used double-glass technology to lower the chances of micro cracks, lower attenuation rate, and better protection against fire.
Among its other features, the bifacial variant comes with a frame that allows it to withstand a static mechanical load of about 5,400 pascal (Pa).
“The new S4 bifacial half-cell module represents the growth and progress of the company, with a goal of providing the best products to PV industry customers worldwide,” said President of Seraphim, Polaris Li. “From the standard module to the half-cut one, from the monofacial module to the bifacial one, each step taken by Seraphim is geared towards innovation and transformation in order to create superior products. We believe that with the launch of the new product, our customers will benefit significantly.”
TaiyangNews is currently hosting a virtual conference on High Efficiency Solar Technologies to bring together industry stakeholders to talk about 182mm PERC, HJT, TOPCon and IBC technologies among others. It is also the launch event for our Heterojunction Solar Technology 2020 Report. Registrations can be done for free for the event that’s to last till December 4, 2020.
