Module result of the HI-Mo 5 will certainly get to 530W and also effectiveness will certainly go beyond 21.0%.

The Hi-MO 5 will certainly lay over 9 busbar and also half-cut cell innovations onto a mono PERC base. The wafer dimension will certainly take the exact same instructions as the sector pattern in the direction of bigger layouts, such as with upcoming brand-new items by Jinko and also JA Solar. Although neither of these firms has formally revealed its brand-new module offering, the obvious consentaneous technique of the 3 solar titans in this element has actually shocked the sector.

" Too numerous choices on dimension will definitely perplex customers as well as their companions. We have solid factors to advertise a market criterion to produce real worth for customers," Dennis She, elderly vice head of state of LONGi Solar, informed PV Tech throughout a special meeting. "From an onset, LONGi has actually been proactively touching the market's leading business and also essential providers, sharing our method and also searchings for, and also currently we are very thrilled at exactly how we are all lined up with each other."

It was disclosed that production of Hi-MO 5 will certainly start from completion of August this year, with a capability of 10GW.

Dennis She proceeded: "The bypassing objective of LONGi advancements is to offer the market advanced modern technology on a mass-production range. We genuinely think that just this sort of innovation can supply outright worth to customers. It is useless if a brand name brand-new item is difficult to mass fruit and vegetables. For the here and now, LONGi will certainly be the very first firm to attain mass-production of its most cutting-edge items"

Throughout the years, LONGi has actually spent considerably in the R&D of components and also cells, constantly leading the market's technical development as well as establishing item criteria, while advertising PERC innovation. The business's high-efficiency Hi-MO collection components are released and also remain to be defined in several massive solar projects worldwide.

The upcoming Hi-MO 5 item will generally be released in 'ultra massive' solar plants and also will certainly bring reduced LCOE. Dennis She proceeded: "All LONGi technologies are fixated client worth, as well as each item has actually been very carefully thought about and also carefully reasoned. When we introduced the 166-size Hi-MO 4 variation last year, we began to create this brand-new generation module item.

" We have actually been preparing the Hi-MO 5 for 6 months. It does not change the Hi-MO4-- it matches, enhances the longi as well as finishes item profile for the details requirements of every PV application."

In 2019, LONGi's manufacturing capability for monocrystalline components got to 14GW. According to the firm's mentioned strategies, manufacturing ability is anticipated to surpass 30GW by the end of 2020. The Hi-MO 4 collection components will certainly represent 90% of complete deliveries this year, with the projection for 2021 showing that Hi-MO 5 will certainly stand for 30%, with Hi-MO 4 occupying the 70% delivery equilibrium.

Throughout the years, LONGi has actually attained numerous advancements in cell and also module modern technology, continually establishing brand-new power as well as conversion performance documents. The business is additionally enthusiastic in regards to item deliveries, improving the prospective to a minimum of match the market's various other major gamers around.

Traditions export information for April 2020 rankings LONGi within the leading 3 business in import and also export checklists for the very first time with 580MW of worldwide deliveries, behind just Jinko as well as JA Solar.

The COVID-19 pandemic has actually boosted competitors in between the leading 5 module makers, with Trina, Jinko, Risen as well as JA Solar each introducing high-power items. Module power has swiftly went across the 500W limit and also is currently going to the period of 600W.

"LONGi has actually advertised high-power items from really beforehand in the sector as well as we constantly urge that all need to have automation worth. Prior to taking part in the R&D of any type of item, we will certainly execute extensive examination and also research study. Taking 166 dimension items as an instance, LONGi has actually generally led its peers for half a year, and also we are presently creating as well as creating components with a lot higher power," Dennis She stated.
