HAMBURG, Germany and WUXI, China, Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Suntech Power Holdings Co., Ltd. (STP), the world’s leading manufacturer of crystalline silicon photovoltaic (PV) modules, announced the introduction of a 60 cell multi-crystalline PV module to be marketed under the product name Wd. The new Wd module series features positive peak power tolerance of 0/+5 watts, which will assure that all Wd modules will produce at, or outperform, the nominal power rating.

“The new 60 cell module, which weighs about 20kg, will be ideal for customers that have plenty of roof space, but want to avoid the challenges of mounting a heavier 72 cell module,” said Andrew Beebe, Suntech’s VP of Global Product Strategy. “With high quality components and extensive vetting through our 52 step quality control process, we believe this will be one of the most reliable modules on the market and well-suited to operate in extreme weather conditions. This new product reflects our commitment to developing products to suit our customers’ evolving needs through close collaboration and consideration of customer feedback.”

The 60 cell Wd module series will be available in two power ratings, 220 watt or 225 watt, and is designed to complement Suntech’s 54 cell and 72 cell multi-crystalline modules to provide customers with a powerful and light weight option for residential and commercial rooftop applications. In addition to positive peak power tolerance of 0/+5 watts, the new modules will also feature the latest IP67 rated junction box with enhanced thermal isolation, 4mm thick glass and a durable and easy to install 50mm aluminum frame.

Illustrating Suntech’s commitment to producing the most reliable modules in the industry, the Wd module series will be backed by Suntech’s 25-year power output warranty, and has also received IEC 5400Pa certification that verifies the modules’ ability to withstand high wind-pressure and snow load.

The Wd module series is already available for purchase and will be on display at this year’s European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition from September 21-24 at booth B7/75, CCH Congress Centre and International Fair, Hamburg, Germany. Interested customers can also contact their local dealerships or visit Suntech’s website for additional information.
