Time is in a hurry and the year 2022 is nearing the end. This was an extraordinary year, with the epidemic raging, the world unrest and economic situation complicated at home and abroad. However, new opportunities are also breeded in the crisis, global renewable energy is ushering in unprecedented development opportunities. With the forward-looking strategic layout and strong development tenacity, Akcome has grasped the transition opportunities of energy and stepped on the road of high-quality development.
The release conference of new products of 700W+ HJT Modules, Hangzhou Future Research Institute officially unveiled, full-scale production of 210 microcrystalline HJT cell, successively winning several photovoltaic demonstration projects, and appearing at International energy exhibitions for multiple times... Many milestone events have witnessed the rapid growth of Akcome. Let's review numerous achievements made by Akcome in 2022 in terms of capacity layout, technological innovation, market development, brand construction and etc.
Based on Intelligent Manufacturing Base, Accelerating Production Capacity Layout
In 2022, with the vision of becoming a leading enterprise of high-efficiency HJT cells and modules, Akcome has focused on the development of advanced and efficient manufacturing industry supported by supporting system and frames, with the new generation of high-efficiency HJT technology as a core, based on six high-efficiency industrial intelligent manufacturing bases such as Huzhou, Suzhou, Ganzhou, Zhoushan and Wenzhou. This year, significant progresses have been made in the production capacity construction of various bases of Akcome, the production capacity persisting in a stable and continuous increase, the production capacity construction of the bases such as Huzhou, Zhoushan and Suzhou has been accelerated, which helps Akcome to become the leading enterprise of HJT further.
▲ AKCOME HuZhou Industrial Manufacturing Base
Next year, Akcome’s high-efficiency photovoltaic cell capacity is planned to be 22.1GW, and module capacity is planned to be 17.7GW. By 2025, Akcome is going to realize 48.9GW in high-efficiency cell capacity and 43.7GW in efficient module capacity.
Insisted on Technology Leading, Exploring Paths for Cost Reducing and Efficiency Increasing
As a leading enterprise in new energy industry, Akcome has been insisting on leading by innovation, focusing on R&D and reducing cost in HJT cell and module technologies. In 2022, Akcome has made significant progresses in multiple key technologies such as silicon wafer thinning, less silvering and microcrystalline silicon technology, and has successfully realized reducing cost rapidly in HJT cell technologies. The release conference of new products of 700W+ HJT Modules, full-scale production of 210 half-cut HJT cell and the trial production of 120/100/90μm thickness of HJT cells, have witnessed the breakthrough and innovation of Akcome in high-efficiency HJT technologies.
▲ In August, Akcome released 700W+ HJT Modules
Through technological innovation, the average production efficiency of Akcome HJT cells reaches 24.7%, the yield rate is up to 99%, the bifaciality is 95%, the average production efficiency of HJT modules reaches 22.53%, and the bifaciality is 87%-92%, which occupying a strong advantage in the industry. In 2023, Akcome will continue to explore and deepen the multiple paths in reducing cost and increasing efficiency such as silver-free copper plating, microcrystalline silicon technology, introduction of indium-free and indium-reducing TCO, and production of thinning wafers within 120um, so as to promote the improvement of HJT efficiency and cost reduction, and help accelerate the arrival of the era of HJT industrialization.
