With the rise of large formats and n-type products beginning to make themselves known, these are exciting times for PV module manufacturing. Residential and commercial installations are also growing strongly in Europe and elsewhere, meaning there’s plenty to talk about with a module manufacturer that has long worked to establish itself in this space. In the following interview, Sascha Rossmann, vice president of global sales and Marc Ortmanns, Head of European marketing at Winaico provide a market update and closer look at the Taiwan-based module producer’s technology roadmap for the coming years.
The two three-phase inverters feature two maximum power point trackers and have input voltages ranging between 200 and 1,000 V DC. The smallest device has an efficiency of 98.3% and the largest 98.5%.
The new capacity is expected to meet domestic solar module demand, which the PV manufacturer expects will significantly increase in the second half of this year.
The latest global PV industry outlook published by trade group SolarPower Europe, has indicated tight supply of the solar panel raw material is expected to persist this year but the trade body said it would be unlikely to drive further price rises.
The new production line will enable the Taiwan-based manufacturer to produce larger and more powerful modules.
The floating plant will be deployed at the 20 MW Wushantou hydroelectric power dam operated by Taiwanese state-owned utility Taiwan Power Corp, in Tainan city.
The 98.7%-efficient device features six MPPT trackers and an overall input voltage range that is from 200 V to 1000 V.
The module features a power conversion efficiency of 19.94% and a temperature coefficient of -0.35% per degree Celsius. The product is recommended for residential and commercial projects
