Suntech Power has developed a new 255 W polycrystalline module, STP255-20Wd. According to the company, the new 60-cell module, which utilizes optimized metallization technology to boost efficiency, is one of the most powerful in its class and can be incorporated into almost any kind of solar application.
‘With the evolution of the solar market in Europe, the power output and reliability of solar systems is becoming more important than simply lowest cost,’ says Vedat Gurgeli, vice president of sales and marketing for Suntech in Europe.
The 255 W module has been certified according to the IEC 61701 salt mist corrosion test, ensuring that it is well suited to operate in coastal applications. The module features an anti-reflective hydrophobic layer that reduces surface dust and allows the module to absorb more light, achieving superior weak-light performance and enhanced module performance over time, Suntech says.
