Seraphim Solar Bifacial Quality Rooted in State of the Art Factory

  • Leading solar module manufacturer, Seraphim Solar has a dedicated factory in northern China’s Shanxi province producing high-efficiency half-cell solar modules.
  • The plant was set up with Shanxi Lu’An Photovoltaics Technology Co. Ltd and uses leading-edge factory machinery to manufacture standard half-cell, dual-glass half-cell, and bifacial half-cell modules.
  • The factory has a 1GW capacity.

Seraphim said that its bifacial products use a double layer of glass combined with advanced two-sided PV cells, generating up to 25 percent more clean electricity than standard modules. The bifacial technology is expected to dominate the solar market because of its lower levelized cost of energy (LCOE) and Seraphim is taking major steps to supply this fast-growing demand.

“Seraphim and Lu’An’s highly automated facilities feature the latest internally-developed quality control systems, which can now cut manufacturing costs and management overhead by about 50 percent. Our ultimate goal is to make the Seraphim brand synonymous with cost-effective, reliable products for all of our end users”, said Polaris Li, president of Seraphim.

“The partnership with Seraphim marks the cooperation between state-owned and private enterprises to link upstream and downstream supply chains”, said Deng Ming, chairman of Lu’An Photovoltaics Technology Co. Ltd., adding that he foresaw how the cooperation would help improve product performance, drive sales, and enhance competitiveness.
