LDK Solar Announces Next Generation Of Modules

Stocks in this article: LDK

XINYU CITY, China, MUNICH, Germany and SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LDK Solar Co., Ltd. (NYSE: LDK) ("LDK Solar") today announced the company's next step on the path to achieving its goal of delivering high quality value for money solutions to the solar energy industry.  Several improvements are now provided in a new generation of LDK Solar Mono- and Multi-Crystalline Modules.

New lightest frame design and customer-focused features

The light new frame design benefits installer handling as well as total system load on the roof as it reduces the weight for all 60- and 72-cell-modules significantly up to 5%. This also applies for the new 48-cell-module which is offered to the residential market and will be available also in a full-black edition. While the new design is allowing unchanged mechanical strength of the module, the slightly reduced module dimensions serve an increased power density.

All LDK Solar modules are now designed to withstand potential induced degradation (PID). Additionally the performance of LDK Solar modules under higher temperatures could be improved through an almost 7% lower temperature coefficient.

LDK Solar M power wafer technology provides reliable high performance

As LDK Solar is one of the world´s largest wafer manufacturers, module customers also benefit from the latest improvements of the wafer performance. Starting in 2012 with M2 power wafer technology, LDK Solar further developed the M power wafer technology for the new module generation now presented at Intersolar in Munich for the first time. Together with a special LDK cell process, the new M3 power wafer enables the multi-crystalline modules a cell efficiency of up to 19% leading to a total power of up to 270 Wp for 60-cell- and up to 310 Wp for 72-cell-modules.

Mr. Sam Tong, CEO of LDK Solar: "High performance and high efficiency are the key drivers for the introduction of any new product to the LDK portfolio. With our in-house R&D facilities and system experts we are dedicated to delivering ever increasing energy efficiency across the whole PV chain – from production, through logistics and finally installation, aimed at the lowest possible kW-hour generation cost. We always involve our customers as we develop new solutions and we thank them for their generous participation in our research."

LDK new module generation presented for the first time at Intersolar

The new LDK Solar modules will be presented for the first time at Intersolar in Munich, starting on June 19, 2013.  Depending on the region, the final delivery will be later in Q2, and the beginning of Q3. For more information please visit the LDK Solar booth in hall A3, stand 150.
