NEW FLAGSHIP IN SOLARWORLD´S MODULE FLEET

BISUN PROTECT WITH PERFORMANCE BOOST AND BIFACIAL EXTRA-YIELD

The new Bisun protect module is equipped with a special white coating on the inside of the back glass, which raises the front side power output even more. The white grid structure reflects the light in the area between the cells directly back into the cell, increasing the output of the module. That is how Bisun protect is using an optimum of solar radiation on the module’s surface, maximum power raises to currently 290 watts. Simultaneously, the implemented bifacial mono-PERC-cells use the reflected light on the rear side of the module and generate a significant additional yield. Furthermore, there is a module variant with clear spaces between the cells, which will be available under the brand name Bisun protect clear with a maximum power of 280 watts. Sunlight can shine through the glass between the cells. Reflections from the subsoil will be turned into a higher electricity yield, too.

Bisun everywhere
Both bifacial modules replace the monofacial glass-glass module Sunmodule protect. Thus, every glass-glass module from SolarWorld offers a bifacial extra benefit. Of course, customers can also use the Sunmodule Bisun as a long-lasting and particularly durable glass-glass module in pitched roof installations. When used in free-field systems and on flat roofs, customers profit from the additional yield of the rear without further costs.

Advantages of glass-glass modules are leading to lower LCOE
Following the company´s strategy, SolarWorld counts on particularly high-efficiency and high-quality products. Glass-glass modules are characterized by their high mechanical load capacity, minimal degradation behavior, a 30-year linear performance guarantee as well as extremely flexible assembly possibilities. The bifacial cells, which have been developed by SolarWorld on the basis of the highly efficient mono-PERC technology, additionally enable the use of the reflected light from the subsoil and thus open up new areas of application such as on bright flat roofs or in free-field systems. “The higher the service life and performance of a solar system, the higher the yield. This reduces electricity generation costs. Our promise to customers is: Whoever buys SolarWorld, gets high power and guaranteed quality – always,” says SolarWorld AG CEO, Dr.-Ing. E. h. Frank Asbeck.


”Being able to introduce Brazil to the infinite opportunities of a solar industry is a privilege for J.v.G. Thoma GmbH, and one that we are extremely grateful for. At the same time, this placed the ball squarely in our court, and the pressure to get the ball rolling quickly was high. Now that the lengthy initial formalities are out of the way, we can focus on making this project a success.“

The first DESERT solar module production in BRAZIL! Lets go ....
J.v.G. Thoma GmbH is delivering a DESERT turnkey production line to Brazil, the first of its kind and hopefully the first in many breakthroughs to leave the factory floor on their way to the largest country in South America. With a capacity of 30 MW, this is a small semi-automatic DESERT production line, but still a flagship in terms of DESERT solar module production and electricity generation in the country, now fully functional and ready to start with operation.

The machinery consists of DESERT production machines for high-efficiency DESERT solar modules built specifically for extreme hot climate, such as can be seen in deserts or in tropical areas. Made solely in Germany and built using the latest in DESERT and TROPIC module production, the systems inlcudes all cutting-edge technology.

Certified DESERT solar modules, DESERT containers, DESERT power plants and DESERT manufacturing machinery built using pioneering DESERT and TROPICS technology are now fully set up, and ready to perform. But powering on the machinery has been a long time coming. Up until recently, this advanced piece of equipment had been waiting for clearance at a port in Brazil. Now that the formalities have been dealt with, both J.v.G. Thoma and its customer in Brazil can get production under way.

J.v.G. Thoma GmbH is a company whose vision has always been to harness the infinite power of the sun and convert it into an inexhaustible supply of energy. But a vision such as this requires global reach, and this project has opened new doors. Brazil is not only a gateway to South American cooperation, but also the launchpad to international reach and expansion.

Following the delivery of this initial order, J.v.G. Thoma GmbH will be looking forward to an ongoing collaboration with the Brazilian company. From setup and initial training to setting the scene for a ramp up, J.v.G. Thoma will be there to provide expertise and assistance. Moreover, the company will be jointly responsible, along with the client, for the successful integration of the DESERT solar module factory.

In the future, bigger DESERT power plants will be set up on Brazilian soil, and together with existing turnkey production systems, they intend to take up a large share of the products and assets this sector will possess locally. J.v.G. Thoma plans to build up a local network of sales agents that can extend a premium offering to neighbouring countries in South America. Eventually, the company hopes to be able to expand its customer base to clients in North America.

Hans Thoma, general manager from the Thoma-group, is eager to acquire a substantial market share in Brazil, a growing country with tremendous potential for solar energy output. Having complied with local official procedures (Inmetro, TÜV, Fraunhofer CSP) and cleared the way for future business collaboration, he expresses his hope that the solar industry will henceforth expand quickly.

”Being able to introduce Brazil to the infinite opportunities of a solar industry is a privilege for J.v.G. Thoma GmbH, and one that we are extremely grateful for. At the same time, this placed the ball squarely in our court, and the pressure to get the ball rolling quickly was high.
