EU PVSEC: Suntech launches 60 cell solar PV module for rooftop systems

Suntech Power Holdings Co, a manufacturer of crystalline silicon solar photovoltaic (PV) modules, is introducing a 60 cell multi-crystalline solar PV module called Wd.

The Wd multi-crystalline solar PV module series features positive peak power tolerance of 0/+5 W, which, according to Suntech, “will assure that all Wd modules will produce at, or outperform, the nominal power rating.”

"The new 60 cell module, which weighs about 20 kg, will be ideal for customers that have plenty of roof space, but want to avoid the challenges of mounting a heavier 72 cell module," says Andrew Beebe, Suntech's VP of Global Product Strategy. "… we believe this will be one of the most reliable modules on the market and well-suited to operate in extreme weather conditions."

The 60 cell Wd multi-crystalline solar PV module series will be available in two power ratings: 220 W or 225 W, and is designed to complement Suntech's 54 cell and 72 cell multi-crystalline solar PV. The multi-crystalline solar PV modules will also feature the latest IP67 rated junction box with enhanced thermal isolation, 4 mm thick glass and a durable and easy to install 50 mm aluminum frame, Suntech says.

The Wd multi-crystalline solar PV module series will be backed by Suntech's 25-year power output warranty, and has received IEC 5400Pa certification that verifies the modules' ability to withstand high wind-pressure and snow load.

The Wd module is on display at this year's European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC), 21-24 September in Hamburg, Germany.
