Astronergy Performance

Astro 5 Semi modules use multi-busbar (MBB) and half-cut techniques, which can improve the reliability of modules while reducing cost and reducing cell-to-module losses(CTM). The modules feature higher light utilisation by using the 9BB Technology, which could have contributed to higher solar cell micro-crack tolerance.

In total, Astronergy achieved 22 Top Performer awards from just six different modules that received awards in any single test.

A Little About the Company

Astronergy Solar is a Chinese-based solar cell and solar panel manufacturing company founded in 2006. It is a division of CHINT Group, a leading distribution and electrical power transmission company in China owned by billionaire entrepreneur Nan Cunhui. According to Forbes, CHINT Group is one of the largest privately-owned companies in the country.

Astronergy Solar has PV cell manufacturing capacity of 13GW and PV panel manufacturing of 20GW in 2022. Nowadays, it has 5 manufacturing bases in China and Thailand. And there are still 5 manufacturing of Astronergy under their construction. The company specialized in commercial and solar farm projects, with its most popular panel series being 72 cells of larger dimensions.

After conducting a locally distributed trial in Australia from 2009 to 2012, Astronergy Solar made a move to re-enter the Australian market back in 2017, forming partnerships with leading renewable product distributors. The company has invested over $60M in large-scale solar farm projects in Australia but currently has a limited presence in the residential and commercial markets.

The AstroSemi module series uses multi busbar (MBB) and half-cut technologies, which can improve the reliability of modules while reducing cost and reducing cell-to-module losses (CTM). The modules feature higher light utilisation by using the 9BB technology, which could have contributed to higher solar cell micro-crack tolerance.

In total, Astronergy achieved 22 Top Performer awards from just six different modules that received awards in any single test.

Astronergy Smart Factory Enhancements

Astronergy has supplied this informative video to show off the intuitive and unique detection system for defects in the Astronergy ‘Smart Factories’

As you can see, the automated process can identify inconsistencies in solar cells that could otherwise be overlooked by the naked eye. Using artificial intelligence to scan for cracks and impurities, hotspots in the build can be identified and dealt with before leaving the factory. In instances of an identified impurity in the body, a production worker will withdraw the panel from the production line to rectify the issue.

The Astronergy factory process gives more assurance to customers and longevity in the production life of the panels themselves. The use of AI in these facilities assists greatly in determining issues that a human QC team could otherwise miss.
