WINAICO, the Taiwanese premium photovoltaic module manufacturer with offices in Europe, North America and Australia announces the opening of its Japan office in Tokyo. The opening of the Japan office coincides with the start of PV EXPO 2013, the largest PV event in Japan, where WINAICO will showcase its high efficiency modules and offer customers a chance to experience the WINAICO quality advantage at first hand.
The new WINAICO QUANTUM module with external dimensions of 1665 x 999 x 40 mm has an astounding module efficiency of 17.15 % and a fill factor higher than 77 %. To achieve one of the highest efficiencies of mono panels in serial production, WINAICO uses the combination of integrated rear side passivation and selective emitter technology (PERC) into the solar cell.
Furthermore WINAICO introduces a new 48‐cell Blackline mono module with dimensions of 1347 x 999 x 40 mm, which offers up to 210W of output and 15.61 % module efficiency. This module series is exclusively produced for the Japanese market and is especially easy to install on smaller roofs. WINAICO modules are perfectly suited for space‐constrained markets like Japan and for customers that want to get the most power out of restricted roof space.
WINAICO modules are assembled on an automated production line in Taiwan using only brand leaders components. The result is a high quality and high power manufactured module with some of the highest yields and reliability in the industry.
“The timing of the opening of the Japan office and participation at PV EXPO is in response to a growing market demand for high efficiency quality modules. The emergence of a large utility scale sector in Japan has taught customers that in order to ensure the highest rate of return on PV projects it is necessary to work together with quality leaders that employ the best technology and strictest quality standards available”, said Sascha Rossmann, Vice President of Global Sales.
WINAICO has appointed Loftur Thorarinsson as representative director of its Japanese office. The WINAICO Japan office will give customers direct access to WINAICO modules and its high quality services. “Our current Japanese customers appreciate the strict quality control and technological leadership of WINAICO. Our relentless investment in R&D and consistent strive for quality offers exactly the right kind of modules to succeed in the long run in one of the most quality driven markets in the world” said Loftur Thorarinsson.
