Shanghai Electric Ink HJT Equipment with Ideal Energy

PVTIME – On 10 August 2023, two subsidiaries of Shanghai Electric (02727.HK, 601727.SZ), Hengxi Photovoltaic Technology Co., Ltd. and Shanghai Electric Group Automation Engineering Co., Ltd., have signed an agreement for the supply of photovoltaic (PV) equipment with Ideal Energy Equipment, a leading supplier in China’s renewable energy market.

Ideal Energy Equipment will provide equipment for the first phase of Shanghai Electric’s HJT production project, which is expected to be operational by the end of 2023.

The project adopts double-sided microcrystalline cell process and exclusive module encapsulation technology to produce high-efficiency solar cells that possess an average conversion efficiency of 25.3% after mass production. The 182R half chip-132 version of solar module will achieve a power output of 620W-630W, resulting in these cells and modules holding the highest average efficiency of HJT cells in mass production and having the highest module power output of the same version in the industry.

With the new partnership with Ideal Energy Equipment, Shanghai Electric will leverage its advantages in equipment and technology research and development to acquire expertise in new generation n-type photovoltaic products, in addition to enhancements related to its semiconductor production line. This advancement in research and development levels of HJT and stacked cells will maintain its leading position within the industry and further support the company’s green energy and zero carbon efforts.
