Las Vegas, 13 September 2016: Module manufacturer Vikram Solar is set to present a range of new products, including a prototype of the high efficiency bifacial solar module ELDORA Duplex, at Solar Power International (SPI) in Las Vegas from 12-15 September 2016. The new monocrystalline module is suitable for both roof-mounted and freestanding installations, and particularly excels in settings where a large quantity of light is reflected by the ground. Here, the 60-cell module configuration is able to achieve outputs in excess of 320 watts, while the 72-cell configuration reaches over 360 watts.
The bifacial module is designed for systems with a maximum voltage of 1500 volts. Module efficiencies above 19% are currently being achieved. The product does not undergo light induced degradation in the initial months of operation. Furthermore, an innovative encapsulation material ensures that no potential induced degradation (PID) can occur. Module stock will be available from spring 2017.
“Over the coming years we not only plan to invest in new products, but also in expanding our module production capacity. In doing so, Vikram Solar will consolidate its position as a tier 1 solar module manufacturer and strengthen this even further” states Gyanesh Chaudhary, MD & CEO of Vikram Solar. Vikram Solar recently partnered with teamtechnik, a market leader in production technology based in Freiberg am Neckar (Germany), to design production lines and supply plant technology to support the company’s expansion plans.
