TÜV certifies CIGSe modules: Top performance with “Linion F”

The solar module manufacturer Soltecture has reached worldwide peak results with its framed thin-film modules based on CIGSe semiconductors. TÜV Rheinland officially confirmed this through the certification based on IEC 61646

TÜV measurements already reached an efficiency of 11.6% in February. This provides an aperture efficiency of 12.6%. Currently the CIGSe modules, which are carried under the product name “Linion F”, reach a peak efficiency of 13%. After just three months of continuous shift operation (24 hours a day) the facility has achieved a yield of over 80%. Soltecture manufactures “Linion F” modules with a power spectrum of 75 to 90 watt.

“Even our second generation, the new-to-the-market high-efficiency modules ‘Linion F’, have surpassed the manifold quality and stress tests required by TÜV,” says Dr. Nikolaus Meyer, CEO and founder of Soltecture. “We have been developing thin-film solar modules based on CIS semiconductors for over ten years as a German quality manufacturer. We will already achieve an efficiency of 14% within the next 12 months.”

The framed CIGSe modules “Linion F” are especially well suited for smaller roofs because of their high efficiency.

The aluminum frame and the tempered, three millimeter strong front glass, make them especially robust and resilient up to 5400 Pascal snow load. During installation, installers will benefit from the compact and easy to handle module footprint (0.8m2/ 14.6kg). A high admissible system voltage (1000V) and one meter long connection cables allow for manifold interconnection options.

“We strive to offer optimum system solutions to the installer from one source,” explains Henrik Krüpper, Soltecture’s managing director for marketing and sales. “This will ensure that our modules will reach their optimum performance.” The module and system provider was developed especially for the 'Linion F' modules the high-end mounting system SOL 30. This system provides a cost optimized, fast and no-tools-required mounting solution for every roof using the framed CIGSe modules.
