Hanwha SolarOne Co. Ltd. (Hanwha SolarOne), a top-10 global photovoltaic manufacturer of high-quality solar modules at competitive costs, today announced the global launch of its new generation modules — the HSL Series. Compared to previous generation modules, these offer a smaller and lighter design, higher power output and enhanced durability, with new features like anti-PID (potential induced degradation) technology, anti-salt mist corrosion and increased snow and wind loads.
“The launch of Hanwha SolarOne’s new polycrystalline modules marks a significant milestone in the evolution of our product offerings. Made with Hanwha SolarOne’s industry-leading technology, these modules deliver high performance at a competitive cost to meet the needs of our customers,” said Hanwha SolarOne President Min-Su Kim. “As the world’s most reliable partner in solar, we will continue to develop a wider range of industry-leading technology and solutions that provide the best value for our customers.”
Hanwha SolarOne’s HSL Series is built for utility, commercial and residential applications. Approximately 2 percent smaller than the previous generation, these modules yield an average 2 percent higher module efficiency. With 30 percent greater protection against snow and 65 percent better wind resistance, they can withstand a snow load of up to 7000pa and a wind load of up to 4000pa. Additionally, at 1.5kg lighter than the previous generation, the new HSL Series is easier and more cost-effective to pack, transport and install. HSL60 Poly and HSL72 Poly are the first among HSL Series modules to have passed the stringent TUV Rheinland PID test.
