March 13th, Beijing – The world's largest thin-film solar power solution company, Hanergy Thin Film Power Group (00566.hk), sustains its grandeur in the industry. As per the recent development, the clean energy giant has signed an agreement with Academy of Meteorological Science to supply its revolutionary thin-film solar panels to support Meteorology Research in Antarctic, the coldest continent on earth.
As per the agreement, Hanergy’s thin-film solar panels will be utilized in the equipment and observation station in the Antarctic region which will aid the meteorology research. To the proudness of Hanergy, it’s the first time thin-film solar panels will be supplied to and installed in Antarctic work stations, which proves the quality of its products.
The signing ceremony was held at Chinese Academy of Meteorological Science on March 7 in the presence of Hanergy’s representatives, Scientists and specialists from Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and Polar Meteorological Chinese Academy of Meteorological Science.
Earlier on February 28, Scientists and specialists from Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and Polar Meteorological Science Research Institute of Chinese Academy of Meteorological Science visited Hanergy’s global headquarter in Beijing. On their visit, Mr. Wei Qiang, President of Hanergy’s Saudi Arabia Company guided them through Hanergy Renewable Energy Exhibition Center to gain insights on the history of Hanergy and its top-of-the-line products incorporated with cutting-edge thin-film solar power technologies.
Dr. Ding Minghu, Deputy Director of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and Polar Meteorological Science Research Institute said, “We chose Hanergy’s solar power panels considering our operational needs and the panels’ ability to work under extreme temperature and low-light conditions.”
“Bearing in mind, par excellence capabilities of Hanergy’s revolutionary thin-film solar panels, we decided to install these solar power panels on the exterior of our observation equipment and shelter to better utilize solar power, reduce the use of fossil energy and eliminate the harmful consequences to the Antarctic,” he added.
With the unique characteristics of being light, thin and flexible, Hanergy’s thin-film solar modules can be applied in products of diverse shapes and sizes and work under different weather conditions. Going to the Antarctic marks another breakthrough in its adaptability.
Commenting on the company’s accomplishment, Mr. Wei Qiang, the president of Hanergy Saudi Arabia Company said, “We’re elated to be the first company in the sector to contribute in meteorology research in Antarctic. While, we feel credible, it gives us further impetus to continue the momentum on technological innovations and sustain our position as technology forerunner in thin-film power sector.”
“Recently, we’ve also signed an agreement with our Saudi partners to set up the first thin-film solar power industrial park in Middle East. From Saudi Arabia to the Antarctic, from extreme high temperature to the extreme coldness, it’s a huge challenge to the reliability of Hanergy’s technologies and products. We’re confident that Hanergy can handle the task to support the meteorology research with great finesse and fervor.” he added.
Hanergy’s solar cells set the world record for conversion efficiency several times, with the newest one being 29.1%. It launched and upgraded handful of consumer products in 2018, including Humbrella, solar-powered umbrella; SolarTank, solar backpack; HanPower, solar power bank, retaining its leading position in mobile energy sector. Subsequently, with the debut of HanTile in April and HanWall in September, Hanergy upped-the-ante in global building-integrated PV segment.
Hanergy recently grabbed the first rank for itself in solar energy sector, while taking up an overall 78th rank (Up from 91st rank last year) among China’s TOP500 Most Valuable Listed
Companies released by 21 Data News Laboratories. Lately, the company inked strategic agreements with partners from Australia, Japan, Vietnam, Switzerland, Paraguay, Chile, Oman, Egypt, and so on, marking its entry in the global market. Collaborating with Bollore Group, Boeing Group, TAM and China’s local express delivery companies, Hanergy reached further down for a wider application of thin-film solar power technologies. Its solar modules was chosen by NASA for international space station testing, to evaluate Alta’s technology for future NASA low-Earth orbit missions, including powering CubeSats.
Constant breakthroughs in the sector have led to steady surge in Hanergy’s market value. Further, Hanergy's "mobile energy +" model is well in place to promote in-depth integrations of mobile energy and traditional industries, and is to result in huge market demand, new business models and potential innovation.
