Chinese solar group Longi Green Energy Technology Co. Ltd. (Longi Solar) launched its new shingled module technology in Australia which is now being produced in volume manufacturing. According to the company, the new Hi-MO X debuted in Melbourne is a high-efficiency module using mono PERC technology and a shingled layout to achieve a leading front-side module conversion efficiency of 20 percent. Suitable for all rooftop installations it is available in 400 W (72-cell) and 350 W (60-cell) peak power variants. »Additional benefits come from a low working current brought about by a cell string circuit design that reduces hot spots and hot spot temperatures.«
Hi-MO X is pre-qualified for the Clean Energy Council of Australia’s (CEC) new standards and includes Tedlar backsheet material by DuPont. The company is collaborating with the University of New South Wales.
At present, Longi has 50 shingle patents granted and more than 72 pending. The full square monocrystalline cells are shingled seamlessly. Longi appointed BayWa Australia, Solar Juice and Sola Gain as official distributors for Hi-MO X in the country.
