Seraphim expands half-cell module production with factory in Vietnam

Seraphim factory

At its Jackson facility, 25 percent of the Seraphim workforce comprises military veterans, including the operations and production staff.

Seraphim Solar System Co. is expanding its capacity, investing in a 750-MW module assembly factory with fully automatic production lines in Vietnam. This move will enhance Vietnam’s enterprise resilience in the face of the pandemic by strengthening its global supply capability, using Seraphim’s 500 MW S3 series half-cell modules and 250MW S4 series half-cell modules.

“This factory is designed to enhance our competitiveness in the US market and increase Seraphim’s global market share by expanding overseas production capacity outside of China,” said Jun Zhuge, Executive Vice President of Seraphim. “Building this factory will create more jobs and opportunities for the local community in Vietnam, advance the region’s technological progress, and contribute to a more energy sustainable society.”

Seraphim modules: Applying the multi-busbar (MBB), half-cut, innovative encapsulation design, the Seraphim S3 series module is equipped with 166mm wafers delivering a maximum power output of 450W. Driven by the Seraphim S4 series module integration, MBB, half-cell, bifacial technology and high-density encapsulation, the module efficiency increased to 21.1 percent with maximum power output of 540W.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
