SHANGHAI (Business Wire) -- Hanwha SolarOne Co. Ltd. (Hanwha SolarOne), a top-10 global photovoltaic manufacturer of high-quality, cost-competitive solar modules, showcased modules from its newest generation HSL Series at the SNEC PV Power Expo 2013 – the HSL 72 Poly, HSL 60 Poly, HSL 60 Poly Smart Module, HSL 60 Poly Black Diamond and HSL 72 Poly Anti-salt. With game-changing design and technological innovations, these modules mark a significant milestone in the evolution of Hanwha Solar's innovative product offerings, and demonstrate its commitment to delivering best-in-class solar solutions.

“At Hanwha SolarOne, we are dedicated to strengthening and diversifying our solar solutions to meet the evolving needs of our customers,” said Hanwha SolarOne President Min-Su Kim. “As stronger, smaller and lighter modules with anti-PID technology and enhanced energy efficiency, the HSL Series is a testament to Hanwha SolarOne's continuous innovation and ability to create value for our customers.”

Built for utility, commercial and residential applications, HSL Series modules are approximately 2 percent smaller than the previous generation, and therefore yield an average 2 percent higher module efficiency. They can also withstand a snow load of up to 7000pa and a wind load of up to 4000pa. Additionally, at 1.5kg lighter than the previous generation, the new HSL Series is easier and more cost-effective to pack, transport and install. HSL60 Poly and HSL72 Poly modules have passed the stringent TUV Rheinland PID test. Backed by a 25-year linear power warranty and 12-year workmanship warranty, these modules also have enhanced quality assurance with International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) certification.

In addition to the features offered by the HSL 60 Poly and HSL 72 Poly, the Anti-salt, Smart Module and Black Diamond models offer enhanced technologies to meet the specific needs of customers around the world, further broadening Hanwha SolarOne's product portfolio. Ideal for seaside locations, the HSL 72 Poly Anti-salt has passed extreme environmental testing at double the salt mist concentration and duration of the IEC 61701; it also features a special aluminum frame and non-coating glass, both of which reduce the risk of salt corrosion. The HSL Poly 60 Smart Module enables owners of PV projects to increase energy production while presenting new levels of intelligence, active manageability and enhanced safety; and the HSL 60 Black Diamond's sleek ebony appearance makes it an aesthetically-pleasing choice for commercial and residential purposes.
