REC, a Norway-based and Singapore-sited integrated solar manufacturer, has announced the new REC TwinPeak 2 BLK2 Series and its commercial production. The new panels features all-black look, five busbars and half-cut cells with a wattage of up to 285Wp.
“REC continues to accomplish new feats with multicrystalline technology,” says Cemil Seber, Vice President, Global Marketing and Product Management at REC. “In addition to reaching power levels that were once unimaginable on this platform, REC can now produce black multicrystalline cells for a truly full-black multicrystalline panel, resulting in a product with high power output, renowned REC quality and optimized aesthetics.”
TwinPeak 2 BLK2 Series assembled PV cells made from larger wafers so that their current production is increased. The five-busbar design help reduce cell resistance, while the half-cut technology further reduce internal resistance. PERC technology increases the panels’ capability of light capture.
This new series uses split junction box design that spread across the middle of the panel, improving the panel’s performance in shaded conditions. The TwinPeak 2 BLK2 Series is also proved of being PID-free.
REC has won IEC 61215 and IEC 61730, as well as UL 1703 certifications for the TwinPeak 2 BLK2 Series, guaranteeing a maximum system rating of 1000V that avoids power losses even in harsh conditions.
REC’s financial results of 2016 declares that its global module shipment increased 9% YoY to 1.2GW. The new product series will be globally available.
