Seraphim Solar System Co. is expanding its capacity, investing in a 750-MW module assembly factory with fully automatic production lines in Vietnam. This move will enhance Vietnam’s enterprise resilience in the face of the pandemic by strengthening its global supply capability, using Seraphim’s 500 MW S3 series half-cell modules and 250MW S4 series half-cell modules.
“This factory is designed to enhance our competitiveness in the US market and increase Seraphim’s global market share by expanding overseas production capacity outside of China,” said Jun Zhuge, Executive Vice President of Seraphim. “Building this factory will create more jobs and opportunities for the local community in Vietnam, advance the region’s technological progress, and contribute to a more energy sustainable society.”
Seraphim modules: Applying the multi-busbar (MBB), half-cut, innovative encapsulation design, the Seraphim S3 series module is equipped with 166mm wafers delivering a maximum power output of 450W. Driven by the Seraphim S4 series module integration, MBB, half-cell, bifacial technology and high-density encapsulation, the module efficiency increased to 21.1 percent with maximum power output of 540W.
