The order includes 103 MW of Longi’s new Hi-MO 5 modules. This is the first order for the new product, which has been designed for ultra-large ground solar parks. The Hi-MO 5 panel was launched with front-side power up to 540 W in June 2020. It uses M10 (182-mm) standard gallium doped monocrystalline wafers and has a conversion efficiency exceeding 21 per cent.The company’s production capacity for the new modules is expected to reach 12 GW this year as a new factory in Jiaxing City, Zhejiang province is added.
