BEIJING, Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Hantile, Hanergy’s recently launched product combining highly efficient thin-film solar panels with traditional roof tiles, has received SGS-TUV certification, certifying that it meets the highest safety standards and is fit to be sold to partners in Europe as well as China.
The SGS-TUV certification is awarded by SGS TUV Saar, a German company that is a worldwide leader in testing, auditing, verifying and certifying. The company conducts certification across a variety of fields, from industrial to automotive to environmental. In terms of solar energy, the SGS-TUV certificate is one of the mostly widely accepted safety standards in Europe.
“Being awarded SGS-TUV certification demonstrates Hantile’s strength as a world-class product ideal for use in a range of applications,” said Hanergy. “We believe this certification represents a milestone in Hantile’s acceptance by customers globally.”
Compared with traditional tiles, Hantile has outstanding features in terms of thermal insulation, waterproofing, heat preservation, fire prevention, infiltration prevention and hail protection. Its waterproofing performance is particularly strong due to its special design utilizing glass material, U-type weather bars and F-type slots. Even under extreme weather conditions, such as heavy thunderstorms, Hantile can still operate normally and safely. Furthermore, Hantile is able to generate power at temperatures ranging from -40 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius. Beyond TUV certification, Hantile has also received the China Compulsory Certification and the China Quality Certification, ensuring that it meets all industrial requirements in term of product quality and safety.>
Aside from the launch of Hantile, Hanergy has made significant progress in 2017 in both the construction and transportation industries. Hanergy’s thin-film solar technology has been deployed throughout China, including being installed on the new headquarters of China’s State Power Investment Corporation. Furthermore, Hanergy’s US subsidiary Alta Devices began work with German car maker Audi to integrate solar cells into panoramic glass automobile roofs. Hanergy has also entered agreements with major bike sharing companies, including Mobike, 99 Bicycle and MTBike to integrate thin-film solar panels into the bodies of more than 15 million bicycles over the next three years.
