REC Group will Launch a ‘New Era of the Company’ at Intersolar Europe 2018 – Booth A2.380
“The n-type product leverages REC's mastery of half-cut cell production, along with module-level innovations that made TwinPeak an award-winning, extremely popular technology among EPCs, installers, and end customers,” said chief executive officer Steve O’Neil. “REC is taking its next big step while leapfrogging p-type mono technology, and is starting a new era of the company.”
The official unveiling of the new module will take place during REC’s Happy Hour at Intersolar Europe on Wednesday June 20 at 4 pm at REC’s booth, A2.380, with O’Neil and the company’s senior leadership on hand. The event will showcase REC’s technology in a mock rooftop installation, as well as other high-demand products that REC's reputation has been built upon, such as TwinPeak 2, TwinPeak 2S 72 – respectively the world’s most powerful 60 and 72-cell multicrystalline panels – and TwinPeak 2 BLK2, a full-black multicrystalline panel ideal for homes.
Building on a successful 2017, the company is projecting to grow volume by 7-9 percent globally this year. Intersolar Europe in Munich is the ideal location for the manufacturer to release its latest technology, with Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) being REC’s strongest sales region in 2017. REC’s top five markets in Europe were Germany, Turkey, Netherlands, France and the U.K., with shipment volume in Germany accounting for approximately 15 percent market share last year.
“REC has seen tremendous growth of our product’s adoption in Europe, where 2017 shipments grew by 165 percent year-over-year in BeNeLux and by 173 percent in France based on the low-carbon footprint of REC solar panels, supported by a Certisolis certification” said Ivano Zanni, vice president of EMEA sales. “We expect the new product to be of particular interest in the European markets, with strengthening demand in 2018.”
