WINAICO, a PV module brand under Win Win Precision Technology, was honored with the award of Taiwan Excellent PV by Bureau of Energy, of Ministry of Economic Affairs. Taiwanese research institute, ITRI, performed a series of safety, performance reviews, and advanced reliability tests to find the best PV module and cell technology in Taiwan. WINAICO’s entry of mono crystalline WSP-M6 PERC module combined high efficiency PERC cells with micro-crack preventing HeatCap technology to outperform all other entries in reliability.
ITRI’s criteria to select Taiwan Excellent PV winners was based on the result of a series of evaluations including Salt Mist test, PID test, UV test, Dynamic Mechanical Load test, Thermal Cycling and Humidity Freeze test, among others. The test sequence and conditions followed NREL’s proposed “Qualification Plus” and the new IEC 62782 initiative. The IEC 62782 standard designed by the PV Quality Assurance Task Force will become the new international standard for ensuring the reliability of solar panels in real world conditions. Market developments show that the current IEC 61215 standards insufficiently reflects and tests real world impacts such as heat, UV and mechanical stress simultaneously, therefore lacking in ensuring the reliability of solar panels for consumers. It is through ITRI’s extensive assessment around every facet of reliability concerns can one justify the winner of Taiwan Excellent PV award as the best quality module manufacturer in Taiwan.
“The aim of Taiwan Excellent PV award is to celebrate the quality of Taiwanese solar products and increase manufacturers’ global brand awareness. We are very proud to be recognized as the best module manufacturer in Taiwan,” said Davis Chen, Chairman and CEO of WINAICO. “Winning the Taiwan Excellent PV award epitomizes WINAICO’s conviction in building the most efficient and reliable solar modules in the world.”
