Case Study: Longi Hi-MO 4 Modules Generate 4.57% Higher Electricity

China-based one the leading manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules, LONGi has recently said that it’s Hi-MO 4 mono modules has generated 4.57 percent higher electricity per day as compared to polycrystalline modules.

The PV module maker has done a case study in Vietnam on two different solar power plants.

Vietnamese DUCLONG Group via its arm DLG Solar has constructed the 50 MW Thuan Nam Duc Long Plant. This plant used LONGi’s Hi-MO 4 mono modules and it is the first solar plant using Hi-MO 4 module in Vietnam. The plant was successfully connected to the grid at the end of 2019 and has generated power at full capacity from December 27, 2019.

On the other hand, there is another plant, near Thuan Nam Duc plant, which used polycrystalline modules of 345W with the same design size and capacity of 50MW and having same connection point of 220kV substation.

Thus, the owner of the plant has compared the power generation capacity of both the plants from December 27, 2019, to January 8, 2020, and concluded that the performance of the LONGi module was significantly superior.

According to the relevant data, the daily average power generation of the Thuan Nam Duc plant reached 245.8MWh, 4.57 percent higher as compared to the daily average of the adjacent poly plant.

Commented on the development, Ta Quoc Dung, General Manager of DLG Solar, said that “the 50MW Thuan Nam Duc Long plant is just the beginning of our cooperation with LONGi. We look forward to using this plant with Hi-MO 4 modules as both a benchmark and an excellent start toward more large-scale projects in the future.”

LONGi has launched its latest Hi-MO 4 module in 2019, based on the M6 (166mm) wafer size.

The company claimed that, with its ultra-high power and value gains, the Hi-MO 4 can reduce BOS costs and provide a greater return on investment to global customers.

It further added that it’s high-efficiency module, based on mono PERC technology, has been a preferred solution for global customers since its launch.

The company shipped its Hi-MO4 modules in 2019 by 1.6GW, with over 10 GW of cumulative orders and letters of intent.

It is expected that in 2020, the production capacity of the module likely to exceed 20GW, and the company is capable of meeting global customer demand.

The Chinese module maker said that it has promoted monocrystalline technology for many years and the market share of mono modules reached over 60 percent in 2019.

This year, the company is expecting that there will be more solar projects adopting its Hi-MO 4 modules in both Vietnam and India, and it will bring ever-greater benefits to its global customers.
