Hanwha Q CELLS
With world-class technology and high quality, Hanwha Q CELLS captured the biggest market share in major markets including Germany, the UK, South Korea, and Japan.
Hanwha Q CELLS is a total energy solution provider worldwide. Our business scope ranges from the midstream of cells and modules to downstream solar solutions for residential, commercial, and industrial buildings, as well as for large solar power plants.
Since our entry into the solar energy business in 2010, the Hanwha Group has transformed Hanwha Q CELLS into the world’s leading producer of solar cells and modules. Our current production networks span across China, Malaysia, South Korea, and the US. Bolstered by strong revenue and driven to stay ahead of the growing worldwide demand, we’ve continued to invest in R&D and manufacturing innovations. Our Malaysia plant alone was able to produce more than 1GW of Q.ANTUM cells annually in 2015, the first of its kind in the industry. In Q1 2019, we penetrated the US market and began our acceleration to expand into the country by building a 1.7GW capacity module plant in the US state of Georgia.
Our Q.ANTUM technology is based on PERC cell technology, providing mono- crystalline efficiency for multicrystalline module cells. The multicrystalline Q.ANTUM module, Q.PLUS, won the Module Manufacturing Innovation award at Solar Industry Awards 2015 in Hamburg, Germany. For two consecutive years, Hanwha Q CELLS has won the Intersolar Award in the Photovoltaics from Intersolar, the most prestigious solar energy conference and exhibition in Europe. In 2017, our Q.PEAK RSF L-G4.2 steel-frame module also won in the Photovoltaics category. The following year, in June 2018, our Q.PEAK DUO-G5 solar module also won in the Photovoltaics category, earning high praise for its 120 half-cell, six-bus bar monocrystalline module that the Intersolar jury panel called “the new standard for residential and commercial rooftops.”
Hanwha Q CELLS was selected as one of the best PV manufacturers by local installers, winning the Top Brand PV Seal 2019 from EuPD Research for the sixth time in a row in Europe and for the fourth time in Australia. Our technology infrastructure enables differentiated technology innovations. Our R&D headquarter is located in Thalheim, Germany and our R&D network covers China, Malaysia, and South Korea. Our R&D centers all receive Hanwha's continuous support and investments to develop solar technology, including Anti- LID, Anti-LeTID, Tra.Q, and more.
By employing our cutting-edge technology and economies of scale, Hanwha Q CELLS has been able to take advantage of the growing demand for solar power around the world. We have been able to offer higher quality products at competitive prices. In 2014, we entered the rooftop solar power equipment market in Japan and Europe and large-scale power plant markets in the US, Thailand, Chile, and Latin America. In the same year, we secured a series of large solar projects across Europe – in the UK, France, and other countries. In 2015, we partnered with US-based NextEra Energy to provide 1.5GW of modules, accelerating our entry into one of the world’s largest solar markets. We also captured the biggest market shares across Germany, the UK, South Korea, and Japan.
Based on its strategies and policies optimized to global energy market, Hanwha Q CELLS is securing its global leadership in the solar industry through long-term growth and expertise.
