SUZHOU, China--26 Sep--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

GCL System Integration Technology Co., LTD. (SZ: 002506) ("GCL-SI"), put its 370W+ high-efficiency modules into mass production in the third quarter this year. Mass production of the new cast mono module of GCL-SI will drive headway for the world to reach grid parity.

The GCL cast mono module stands out with advantages of both polycrystalline and monocrystalline modules. When integrated with other advanced technologies such as Multi-Busbar technology (MBB) and white EVA, the GCL cast mono module can reach a staggering 370 W+, normally associated with monocrystalline modules. In addition to a high efficiency, it also has a lower temperature coefficient, better performance in power generation and less light-induced degradation. The new module has already entered mass production and is estimated to reach 3GW in 2019, the power output of which will bring electricity to nearly 13 million households.

The cell of the new module has an average efficiency of 21.4%,which is made of high-quality silicon wafer and polysilicon materials produced by GCL-Poly. By adopting the ingot casting technology through methods such as thermal field optimization and the addition of seed crystal, the final product comes out with low electric resistance rate, high purity, low oxygen content, better structure and vastly reduced costs compare to mono wafer.

"Striving for lower costs and higher efficiency has been a common concern and key objective of the PV industry recently - Our answer to this is technology innovation. As a one-stop system integration solutions provider, GCL-SI offers services and products for the entire industry chain. Starting from silicon materials, we make a significant, objective approach," said Luo Xin, the president of GCL-SI.

GCL has a team of 2500 experts in research and development for technology innovation around the world. It has R&D centers in Japan, Israel, China, the United States and many others. To date, the team has received 589 national patents and 408 authorization patents.
