Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. has debuted its 1,500 V frameless photovoltaic module.

The company says the 60-cell IEC-rated 1,500 V module, engineered for utility-scale and commercial applications, achieves lower balance-of-system costs by utilizing longer cable runs and strings, fewer combiner boxes and smaller wire sizes.

Suntech adds that the frameless construction is a glass-on-glass structure, and the backsheet has been replaced with heat-strengthened glass.

The new module is backed by the company's 25-year linear power warranty, and the new 1,500 V frameless 255 W and 250 W modules will be available for installation beginning in the first quarter of 2014, Suntech notes.
