Hanwha Q Cells invests over USD$100 million in test facility for perovskite-silicon tandem cells mass production

Hanwha Q Cells, the solar panel unit of Hanwha Solutions Corp., has announced a large investment of 136.5 billion won (around USD$102 million) to establish a test facility for mass production of perovskite-silicon tandem cells and modules at its Jincheon plant in North Chungcheong Province. The trial operations for the new facility are scheduled to begin in the latter half of next year.

In collaboration with its German R&D center in Talheim, which currently operates a small-scale test production line for R&D purposes, the company plans to launch full-scale mass production of tandem cells in the second half of 2026.


Hanwha Q Cells aims to produce tandem cell-based modules with over 16% higher power efficiency than TOPCon and Heterojunction modules through this investment.
