LONGi‘s Hi-MO 7 solar module is now available in Canada. The Hi-MO 7 module was launched globally in May, designed with the latest high-efficiency mono HPDC (Hybrid Passivated Dual-Junction Cell). The Hi-MO 7 is a standard bifacial M10-sized module that offers power output of up to 580 W and a conversion efficiency of 22.5%.
“We are thrilled to introduce the Hi-MO 7 PV module to the Canadian market,” said Steven Chan, head of LONGi North America. “Canada has emerged as a key player in the global transition to renewable energy, and LONGi is committed to supporting this transition by providing the industry’s highest-quality solar solutions. The Hi-MO 7 module showcases our dedication to solar technology innovation and reinforces our position as a leading provider of PV modules worldwide.”
LONGi’s presence in the Canadian utility-scale solar market is growing. Annual installations increased by over 75% in 2022 compared to 2021.
LONGi in Canada at GES 2023 | LONGi will also be exhibiting at the Global Energy Show 2023 from June 13-15 at the BMO Centre at Stampede Park in Calgary at Booth 1227. LONGi technology experts and sales representatives will be on hand to discuss LONGi’s complete product portfolio, including the Hi-MO 5 and Hi-MO 7 products for various application scenarios.
LONGi’s Hi-MO 7 details
Hi-MO 7 utilizes high-quality monocrystalline silicon wafers, optimized module encapsulation and cell paste, SMBB high-precision interconnection, and intelligent automatic junction box welding technology. The utilization of digitalized manufacturing and quality control platforms incorporating AI detection technology further guarantees the quality of Hi-MO 7. As a result, Hi-MO 7 warranties less than 0.8% first-year power degradation and less than 0.38% linear power degradation from the second year to the 30th year.
LONGi’s Hi-MO 7 bifacial module features an advanced frame design, incorporating a 30mm high-strength aluminum alloy frame for enhanced durability and load capacity. Its robust construction enables the module to withstand heavy snow loads and high wind pressures, ensuring exceptional performance and durability in the cold weather climates of Canada. Hi-MO 7’s HPDC bifaciality is at approximately 80%, which means improved power production in snowy regions such as Canada.
“After LONGi’s rigorous 18-month evaluation, development and testing program, this module not only significantly improves module efficiency, but it also brings world-leading product quality and long-term reliability,” stated CJ Fu, Director of Product Solutions, LONGi North America.. “The new design brings down the LCOE by 3%-4% compared to system design utilizing mainstream PERC modules, reducing costs associated with balance of system and AC terminal equipment as well as overall operation and maintenance costs throughout the project lifecycle.”
