Vikram Solar Launches New Monocrystalline Product Line SOMERA
India, 13 October 2017: Vikram Solar, India’s leading module manufacturer and Solar EPC player, launched a new line of high-efficiency modules ‘SOMERA’ at REI Expo, Greater Noida in September. The new module line ‘SOMERA’ falls under the Monocrystalline solar PV module category, which is a new addition to the company’s product portfolio. 60 cell (SOMERA Prime series) & 72 cell (SOMERA Grand) series modules in this product line are out on the market post REI.
The newproducts will help in utility PV cost reductions. These products are equippedwith Passivated Emitter Rear Contact Technology (PERC) cells providing highmodule area efficiency upto 19.05% (for 60 cells) & upto 18.45% (for 72cells).
Mr. IvanSaha, CTO and BU Head– Solar Manufacturing, Vikram Solar Limited, stated“The new modules are suitable for operation under higher system voltage upto1500 V. They are constructed with high efficiency PERC cells, havingextremely Low Light-Induced Degradation and lower temperature coefficientsleading to higher energy yield, compared to other modules. The newmonocrystalline modules are conditioned to withstand 2400 Pascal Wind load,5400 Pascal Snow load and Dynamic Wind load, making them the best option evenfor harsh geographical conditions. Tests have revealed that SOMERA line canoffer 5 – 10% higher energy generation output than that of any industry averagepolycrystalline modules.”
SOMERA GrandSeries (72 cell modules ranging from 340 to 365Wp) and SOMERA Prime Series (60cell modules ranging from 280-310Wp) are products available for the Indianmarket. SOMERA Grand Ultima Silver Series (72 cell modules ranging from 340 to365Wp), SOMERA Ultima Silver Series and SOMERA Ultima All Black Series (60 cellmodules ranging from 280-310Wp) will soon be available for the internationalmarket.
