Seraphim Rolls Out Higher Performance Blade Bifacial Solar Panel

  • Seraphim recently rolled out their innovative Blade Bifacial module.
  • Apart from the higher performance, the Seraphim Blade Bifacial module is much lighter as it uses the 2.0 mm double AR coating tempered glass, instead of the 2.5 mm glass used by most PV manufacturers, making it easy for installation and saving transportation costs.

According to Seraphim, the new product integrates industry-leading half-cell technology and latest bifacial PERC cell technology, allowing it to have such features as low internal power loss, reduced hot spot potential, higher power output and improved reliability.

Compared to traditional modules, half-cell modules have lower current and series resistance, which can minimize mismatch losses, internal power losses, and shadow effects. Besides, the application of the bifacial PERC cell technology in the new product can also increase the power generation by 10 to 30 percent, making the new product more cost-effective, said Seraphim.

Apart from the higher performance, the Seraphim Blade Bifacial module is much lighter as it uses the 2.0 mm double AR coating tempered glass, instead of the 2.5 mm glass used by most PV manufacturers, making it easy for installation and saving transportation costs.

“The technical upgrade of the PV module, as a core component of the power station system, is an important measure to reduce the electricity cost and promote on-grid PV power at a fair price. The integration of the half-cell technology and the bifacial PERC cell technology is an important route to develop the PV module technology and adapt to the needs of the terminal market. In view of its excellent stability, we have extended the product warranty of the monocrystal PERC half-cell modules to 15 years, 50 percent more than the 10-year warranty on the market,” said Polaris Li, president of Seraphim.

He also added that Seraphim has set up a new plant in north China’s Shanxi Province jointly with Shanxi Lu’An Photovoltaics Technology Co. Ltd. to manufacture one gigawatt of ultra-efficient modules including the bifacial half-cell modules annually. At present, the new plant has entered the trial operation stage and the first batch of the modules has rolled off the assembly line for shipment.

Founded in 2011, Seraphim has registered impressive achievements in a short time, earning Tier-1 distinction from BNEF, Top Performer from DNV GL, and loyalty from demanding customers around the world. With an installed base of over 6GW in over 40 countries, Seraphim provides global customers with high-quality products and professional services.

Seraphim has a factory in South Africa and service the African continent. Read more 

Earlier this year, Seraphim climbed into Bloomberg’s Top 10 Tier 1 ranking making their modules highly bankable. EPC’s and IPP’s operating in South Africa and the rest of the African continent are encourage to place orders with Seraphim in order to support local industry and job creation.

Prices and range are highly competitive catering for the small and large scale projects. The Seraphim sales department is ready to take your enquiry, simply drop them a mail: sales@seraphim-solar.co.za

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
