IBC SOLAR expands EcoLine module brand with Indian module

IBC PolySol CI photovoltaic module is tailor-made for the Indian market

Bad Staffelstein / Germany, November 6th, 2012 – IBC SOLAR AG, a global leader in photovoltaic systems, expands its IBC EcoLine module brand by two new photovoltaic (PV) modules, exclusively produced and sold in India as they are tailor-made for the local market: IBC PolySol 245 CI and IBC PolySol 250 CI. The high-quality silicon modules are based on the advanced mono-like multi-crystalline cell technology. The IBC PolySol CI module-series is suitable for all residential or industrial roofs as well as open area installations. Manufactured in accordance with IBC SOLAR specifications and highest quality standards, the PV expert grants a 10-year warranty for its new products. The modules will be presented for the first time at the Intersolar India 2012 exhibition in hall 1, booth 1426 (Mumbai, November 6 - 8).

 The new IBC PolySol CI crystalline panels are part of the innovative IBC EcoLine product family offering outstanding performance, high efficiency and a unique 25-year power warranty granted by IBC SOLAR. The long-life modules have an excellent yield tolerance of 0/+5 Wp (watt peak), thus ensuring the best possible yield and budget savings.

 The new modules feature an innovative alkaline texture in their cells that displays the multi-crystalline cells in their mono-like structure. With this advanced mono-like design, the IBC PolySol CI modules have a higher Watt peak (Wp) output compared to other multi-crystalline modules of similar sizes. They absorb the solar light more easily as the anti-reflection coated glass prevents negative mirror effects on the module surface. The IBC PolySol CI panels feature a low-iron solar glass top with a thickness of 3.2 mm for improved light transmission and a robust hollow-chambered frame.

 For the manufacturing of the new mono-like multi-crystalline PV module, IBC SOLAR has partnered with a local cell and module manufacturer, providing an Indian quality module that fulfills the strictest specifications for all components. All IBC PolySol CI modules are produced in ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified factories. The PV modules are tested according to the IEC 61215 standard for snow loads up to 5400 Pa (Pascal) which approximately corresponds with 500 kg/m2 (in progress). In addition, they comply with the IEC 61730, application class A for system voltages up to 1000 V (Volts), protection class II (in progress). IBC SOLAR ensures a 100 percent end control procedure with an individual registration of the electrical characteristics of each module.

 “The IBC PolySol CI series is completely manufactured in India, from the cell to the module frame” says Jan-Marc Raitz, Managing Director IBC SOLAR Projects Pvt. Ltd. “With this product novelty, we are able to fulfill local content requirements in India without compromising product or plant quality as the modules are manufactured in accordance with our specification and under the IBC SOLAR quality regime. It is one important pillar of our strategy of being a one-stop provider of excellent PV solutions.”
