19 August, 2019: Following on the successful Hi-MO X launch in Melbourne, LONGi brings the innovative module to China with a grand launch in the historical city of Hangzhou, China, host city of G20 summit
More than 200 guests - experts and scholars in PV, representatives of PV enterprises and distributors across China - gathered at the InterContinental Hangzhou to witness the unveiling of LONGi’s new Hi-MO X “Technology of the Future”.
New Hi-MO X
Hi-MO X is a high-efficiency module using mono PERC technology and a shingled layout to achieve a leading front-side module conversion efficiency of 20%. Suitable for all rooftop installations it is available in 400W (72-cell) and 350W (60-cell) peak power variants.
Wang Yingge, Executive Assistant to the Chairman, LONGi Solar, explained, “An innovative circuit design eliminates power losses caused by solder strip shading and a novel cell series-parallel circuit design significantly increases power generation performance in shaded conditions. The low working current of the cell string circuit design reduces hot spots and effectively reduces hot spot temperatures.”
“LONGi has invested substantial R & D resources in cell and module. Hi-MO X is not only an exploration into the photovoltaic technology of the future, but also a breakthrough innovation of existing technology. LONGi has 50 shingle patents granted and more than 120 pending.”
Proven in laboratory stress tests and real word applications
LONGi and independent 3rd parties certification agencies have validated the long-term reliability of Hi-MO X in stress and quality tests. Hi-MO X is already field tested in several real world projects in China’s Top Runner scheme. In Hong Kong, Hi-MO X modules are specified in high quality projects such as the Li Po Chun United World College, Bishop Hall Jubilee School and the Oceanic Industrial Park for its advanced features, high power density and sleek appearance.
At launch, 41 PV distributors across China booked first orders totaling 467 MW.
