PVTIME - LONGi, the world’s leading solar technology company, launched its latest
Hi-MO 4 module in 2019, based on the M6 (166mm) wafer size. With its ultra-high
power and value gains, the Hi-MO 4 can reduce BOS costs and provide greater
return on investment to global customers.
LONGi’s high-efficiency module, based on mono PERC technology, has been a
preferred solution for global customers since its launch. Shipments of Hi-MO4
in 2019 reached 1.6GW, with more than 10GW of cumulative orders and letters of
intent. In 2020, the production capacity of the module will exceed 20GW,
capable of meeting global customer demand.
The 50MW Thuan Nam Duc Long Plant was constructed by DLG Solar, a
wholly-owned subsidiary of the well-known Vietnamese DUCLONG Group. Covering an
area of 50 hectares in a solar park 100 kilometers away from Nha Trang, the
plant is flat with abundant sunlight resources. The plant uses LONGi Hi-MO 4
mono modules and is the first solar plant to adopt Hi-MO 4 in Vietnam. The
plant was successfully connected to the grid at the end of 2019 and has
generated power at full capacity from December 27, 2019.
Near the Thuan Nam Duc plant, there is another plant using polycrystalline
modules (345W) with the same design size and capacity (50MW) and same
connection point (220kV substation). The owner compared the power generation
capacity of the two plants from December 27, 2019 to January 8, 2020 (as shown
in the figure below) and it was clear that the performance of the LONGi module
was significantly superior. According to the relevant data, the daily
average power generation of the Thuan Nam Duc plant reached 245.8MWh, 4.57%
higher than the daily average of the adjacent poly plant.
"The 50MW Thuan Nam Duc Long plant is just the
beginning of our cooperation with LONGi. We look forward to using this plant
with Hi-MO 4 modules as both a benchmark and an excellent start toward more
large-scale projects in the future.” commented Ta
Quoc Dung, General Manager of DLG Solar.
LONGi has promoted monocrystalline technology for many years and the market
share of mono modules reached more than 60% in 2019. In 2020, there will be
more solar projects adopting LONGi Hi-MO 4 modules in both Vietnam and India,
bringing ever greater benefits to global customers.
