Hareon`s R&D center has been dedicated to the research and the development of PV technology innovation, and its goal is to explore high quality silicon material (wafer), cell & module technologies, and to improve PV power generation systems via a vertical-integration strategy.

Casting

In 2014, Hareon Solar R&D team developed a new line of casting furnaces: the 22 G7-Ingot Furnaces. These G7-Ingot Furnaces produce 30% more silicon wafers per ingot compared to the previous generation of furnaces. The improved furnace design also yields higher quality wafers. As a result of optimizing the process and improving feedstock quality, Hareon Solar aims to increase the product yield and reduce cycle times, thus cutting down on production and labor costs. Hareon Solar leads the industry in producing high quality silicon wafers, and its ingot casting capacity will exceed 2 GW in 2016.

Cells

Hareon Solar utilizes the latest texturing, emitter diffusion, and multi-layer coating technologies to produce high-efficiency cells of the best quality. At present, the Company’s R&D department has reached an efficiency of 20.2% for polycrystalline cells and efficiency of 21.2% for mono-crystalline cells. Hareon is able to mass produce solar cells with an average efficiency of 18.4% for polycrystalline cells and 19.8% for mono-crystalline cells.  All products pass the TUV 192-hour PID-resistant test.


Hareon Solar’s R&D department completed its development of the PERC cell/module technology with positive results. The PERC cells have a conversion efficiency of up to 20.5% more than standard cells, and the resulting modules (60 cells) have a peak power output of up to 290 W. These modules have passed the reliability certification and Hareon has the capability to start mass production. The black silicon solar technology from independent research and development by Hareon are 0.6% more efficient and produce 5 W higher output than the traditional products.


At the same time, the R&D department also developed N-type bifacial cells with front-side efficiency up to 19.5% and rear-side efficiency up to 18.4%. The resulting bifacial module produces peak power up to 325 W. Furthermore, the second-generation ink-jet printing technology which uses electroplating processes received grant funding from the “863-Program” in 2014.


Modules

Hareon Solar’s R&D department combined its high-quality silicon wafers with its advanced cell technology and optimized module manufacturing techniques to increase its module conversion rate to more than 16.5% and its module power up to 270 W. The R&D department continuously strives to provide PV products of the highest quality with excellent anti-PID results, increased mechanical load limits, and enduring reliability capable of withstanding harsh operating environments.

Hareon places great importance on its products’ quality and provides professional post-sales service, certified by TUV, American UL, VDE, JET, CEC, UK MCS, Brazil BV, and China CQC.


On top of being able to mass produce different types of conventional mono-crystalline, polycrystalline, and bifacial modules, Hareon Solar has also designed and developed many location- and application-specific products. Some examples include the offshore modules, ultra-light modules, self-cleaning modules, split-PV junction box modules, PV-T modules, 1500V rated modules, nonmetal modules, anti-corrosion frame modules, AC modules, and half-cell modules among many others in other to meet application specific requirements from customers. Hareon has always been committed to providing customers with efficient and high-quality products and services.


Power Plants

Hareon Solar created an optimized power plant plan which matches the characteristics of the PV modules with the actual geographical situation based on land-use optimization and tracking technology (fixed and adjustable bracket, single axis tracking, etc.). As a result of intelligent monitoring, PR analysis technology, and high-precision data acquisition, the power plants can maintain efficient operations and improve the overall yield.
