Centrosolar Introduces 54-Cell PV Module

Centrosolar AG has launched a 54-cell photovoltaic module with increased output. The product will be showcased at the upcomingEuropean Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition, which will be held Sept. 6-10 in Valencia, Spain.

The new modules have four more cells than the former 50-cell panels of the S-Class Excellentseries and can be fitted by one person. The chosen layout of the cellmatrix means that the efficiency has been given a considerable boost,according to Centrosolar. The modules achieve an output of up to 225 W.

The new version of module is wider and shorter, resulting in improvedstatics and greater torsional rigidity on the roof, the company adds.For the installation engineer, the new dimensions mean greater ease ofhandling during the installation process, shortening the overall fitting process.

The S-Class Excellent module series is built at thegroup’s own production plant at Centrosolar Sonnenstromfabrik in Wismar, Germany. It will become available in Germany in the fourth quarter ofthis year, with launches in Spain, Italy, France, the Netherlands andGreece to follow.
