A 84 kW Q.FLAT-G4.1 photovoltaic system powers the manufacturing plant of doming specialist CN Industries in France.

Hanwha Q Cells GmbH provided the complete flat roof solution for the installation, which comprises of 280 Q.PEAK-G4.1 300 Wp modules as well as a tailor made mounting system. The German subsidiary of the world´s largest producer of high performance solar cells, Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd. first launched Q.FLAT-G4.1 at Intersolar Europe 2017.

The system has been designed to maximize system yields and lower LCOE (Levelized Cost of Electricity) on limited flat roof spaces regardless of the system orientation.

In the case of CN Industries in the French Auvergne region, the 84 kW solar system has been installed in east-west orientation and is expected to produce around 116.280 kWh of clean electricity per year. This will enable the company to use around 70% of the self-produced solar electricity to power its doming production and save up to 5.218 kg of CO2 per year. Hanwha Q Cells partner Systèmes Solaires, one of the most experienced installers in France, designed, and constructed the rooftop installation.

The second installation phase will extend the system to a carport, where Q Cells solar modules will increase the total system size to 112 kWp. Moreover, a large energy storage will help to reach an energy autonomy rate of 72% for the plant.
