LDK Solar Announces New Lightweight Solar Modules
LDK Solar Co., Ltd. (NYSE: LDK) ("LDK Solar") today announced the company's next step on the path to achieving its goal of delivering high quality value for money solutions to the solar energy industry. Several improvements are now provided in a new generation of LDK Solar Mono- and Multi-Crystalline Modules.
New lightest frame design and customer-focused features
The light new frame design benefits installer handling as well as total system load on the roof as it reduces the weight for all 60- and 72-cell-modules significantly up to 5%. This also applies for the new 48-cell-module which is offered to the residential market and will be available also in a full-black edition. While the new design is allowing unchanged mechanical strength of the module, the slightly reduced module dimensions serve an increased power density.
All LDK Solar modules are now designed to withstand potential induced degradation (PID). Additionally the performance of LDK Solar modules under higher temperatures could be improved through an almost 7% lower temperature coefficient.
