India’s Gautam Solar is set to launch n-type TOPCon modules at Intersolar Europe in Munich, Germany, as it eyes the European market. It will offer these modules in two power output ranges. Modules with power outputs from 420 Wp to 435 Wp are targeted at residential, and commercial & industrial (C&I) segments, whereas modules with 565 Wp to 580 Wp are suitable for utility-scale and large C&I customers.
“Europe is an important market for Indian solar module manufacturers and our new products with higher efficiencies are ideal for Europe,” said Gautam Mohanka, CEO of Gautam Solar.
The 420 Wp – 435 Wp TOPCon modules are available in four variants: all black, silver frame, glass-to-glass bifacial, and light-weight bifacial. These have an area under 2 m2, in compliance with local requirements.
The all-black panels incorporate a black backsheet and black anodized aluminum alloy frame, in stark contrast to the conventional design with a white backsheet and silver anodized aluminum alloy frame.
Glass-to-glass bifacial variant provides up to 10-30% gain from the rear side. Together, n-type TOPCon and bifacial technologies provide 37% more power.
Light-weight bifacial modules use a transparent backsheet, which ensures good rear-side power generation while keeping the module lightweight to prevent handling issues. These are built with 108 half-cut cells based on an M10 wafer.
The 565 Wp – 580 Wp modules for utility and large C&I projects feature 144 half-cut cells based on an M10 wafer.
Gautam Solar has also launched 400-415 Wp mono PERC modules in an all-black design.
“All of these modules incorporate round ribbon for better light utilization, non-destructive cell cutting for higher reliability and lower chances of micro-cracks, and half-cut cell technology for better low-light performance. The optimum module size using M10 cells ensures maximum space utilization in a standard 40 ft. container during transportation,” stated Gautam Solar.
The new advanced modules are being manufactured at the company’s manufacturing facilities in India.
Gautam Solar is based out of New Delhi, with four factories in Haridwar. It has a solar module capacity of 500 MWp and is expanding to 1 GWp by September 2023.
