LDK Solar Co. Ltd. released new versions of its monocrystalline and multicrystalline solar modules featuring a lighter frame design and other features. It also introduced a new power wafer.
The company says the new frame design reduces the weight for all 60- and 72-cell modules up to 5%. The frame will also support LDK's new 48-cell module for the residential market. LDK says enhancements to all its solar modules provide greater resistance to potential induced degradation and improved performance under higher temperatures.
LDK has also introduced its new M3 power wafer, claiming it produces multicrystalline module cell efficiency of up to 19%.
