XI'AN, China, Sept. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Xi'an, China based LONGi, the world leading
solar technology company, announced that it has achieved volume
production of their Hi-MO 5 series module at its module factory in
Xianyang City, Shannxi Province, China. The first Hi-MO 5 rolled off the
production line on 8th September.
LONGi launched its new generation product Hi-MO 5 module with
front-side power up to 540W in June
2020. Based on M10 (182mm) standard gallium doped
monocrystalline wafers, this high performance product with
conversion efficiency over 21%, is developed to deliver class
leading value to utility scale applications. Hi-MO 5 will bring
optimal LCOE to ultra large-scale PV projects.
Hi-MO 5 continues the hallmark of "Innovation" that is typical
of all of LONGi's Hi-MO series products. LONGi designed Hi-MO 5
from the ground up specifically to deliver greater value for global
customers of large-scale PV projects. Hi-MO 5 was launched
after months of customer's insights, refinements and optimization
of the module size, design parameters and high power.
"Smart Soldering" technology brings higher performance
Hi-MO 5 adopts innovative "Smart Soldering"
technology for high reliability of micro gap interconnection,
product efficiency and stable current output. This proprietary
technology uses integrated segmented ribbons that maximize light
capture and reliably connect cells with reduced gap distance.
The combination of these technological innovations can increase
the module efficiency of Hi-MO 5 by 0.3% (compared with
conventional multi-busbar products) and reduce the tensile stress
on the cell by 20%, thus improving the product quality.
Compatibility and reliability create ultra-high value
for global customer
The working current of LONGi Hi-MO 5 module is about 13A.
Including bifacial gain, the operating current remains within the
maximum input current range of inverters, with no power generation
The module size of Hi-MO 5 is 2256x1133mm, and its length is
perfectly compatible with 1P and 2P horizontal single axis tracking
systems. Hi-MO 5 adopts "double glass with frame"
construction that provides high load capacity (front and back
static load of 5400Pa, 2400Pa respectively) and proven
long-term reliability without need for the addition of a rear
Mass production of advanced technology can deliver true
LONGi Hi-MO 5 adopts the M10 standard 182mm wafer size. This
standard is established with thorough studies across the whole PV
module manufacturing, transport and deployment processes.
To ramp-up Hi-MO 5 mass production, LONGi is now accelerating
the construction of new production capacity. It is expected that
the production capacity of LONGi Hi-MO 5 will reach 12GW this
Dennis She, Senior Vice President, LONGi Solar, said,
"Creating, from the ground up, a high-power module that meets
customers' requirements is the inspiration behind Hi-MO
5. The mass production of advanced technology can
deliver true value. We look forward to delivering value, higher
power and lower LCOE to our global partners and customers that
enable a new wave of photovoltaic grid parity."
LONGi Solar's Module Factory in Xianyang City, Shaanxi was
already running at full capacity in May with annual production
capacity reaching 5GW. In addition, LONGi Solar's Module Factory in
Jiaxing City, Zhejiang is under
construction and will also bring another 5GW annual production
capacity. LONGi will continue expand its global layout and continue
to invest in production capacity to meet the needs of future solar
