GCL SI Unveils New High-efficiency Modules Featuring MBB Technology at SNEC PV Power Expo
SHANGHAI, May 29, 2018 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

GCL System Integration Technology Co., LTD. (SZ: 002506) ("GCL-SI"), a 
subsidiary of GCL Group, China's leading energy service provider, has premiered 
four new monocrystalline and polycrystalline modules featuring Multi-Busbar 
(MBB) technology at the SNEC PV Power Expo in Shanghai. The company also 
revealed its plans to place equal emphasis on both module types and expand into 
emerging markets across the globe.


The new additions to GCL-SI's high-efficiency portfolio come in two series, 
normal single-glass photovoltaic (PV) modules and glass-to-glass bifacial 
modules. The power output of the single-glass MBB polycrystalline modules hits 
305W in mass production, making them the normal-type polycrystalline modules 
with the highest output in the world. The wattage for the single-glass 
monocrystalline modules has reached 315W, 10W higher than the standard output 
in China's Top Runner Program.


"Our new lineup of modules that feature MBB technology are game-changers for 
us. They allow us to offer high efficiency, reliability and application 
flexibility at lower production costs, which makes them accessible to a wider 
range of potential customers," said Luo Xin, the president of GSL-SI. "Our 
overseas sales volume has doubled in the past year. Going forward, we will 
expand our operations into emerging markets, especially countries that fall 
within China's Belt and Road Initiative, by developing or investing in 
industrial parks, with the goal of achieving 50% of our sales overseas by the 
end of 2018, and 70% by 2020."

MBB technology brings a 2% increase in cell efficiency and 30W increase in 
power output to modules. In addition, the glass-to-glass bifacial modules 
vastly increase the power generation potential of each surface. These new 
products showcase not only the company's technological advancements, but also a 
variety in product lineup. A portfolio of both monocrystalline and 
polycrystalline modules will create an advantaged position in the industry for 
GCL-SI, leading to growth in market share.

The emergence of new technologies such as Polycrystalline Black Silicon PERC, 
Monocrystalline PERC, N-type Monocrystalline and many others, along with highly 
differentiated products and technology breakthroughs, have cut production costs 
and boosted performance and efficiency. As a result, the PV market is enjoying 
steady growth and emerging markets especially are growing rapidly.

The world's leading manufacturer of PV modules, GCL-SI serves both domestic and 
global markets with various needs and application conditions with 
high-efficiency cell modules. The company is able to address specific customer 
needs by creating tailor-made integration system solutions. GCL-SI has been 
making inroads in smart manufacturing, improving product performance and 
production efficiency with new technologies such as automation, digitalization 
and the Internet of Things.
