The REC Group, a Bluestar Elkem company with headquarters in Norway and operational headquarters in Singapore, started mass production of the REC Alpha Series solar panel in Singapore. To produce the REC Alpha Series, REC has invested a total of $150 million into the site and developed a new cell fab. According to the company, this amounts to an additional 600 MW of heterojunction (HJT) cell and module capacity, bringing REC Group's total module capacity in Singapore to 1.8 GW annually. The 60-cell solar panel is delivering up to 380 W, backed by REC's 25-year performance warranty, guaranteeing 92 percent of nameplate power after 25 years.
The REC Alpha Series was initially launched at Intersolar Europe in May 2019. First rooftop systems from initial production volumes have already been installed in Italy, the Netherlands, US, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
