Research & Development We are still hungry for the next innovation.


At its headquarters for Technology & Innovation in Thalheim, Germany, Hanwha Q CELLS has a unique setup of R&D, pilot production and testing enabling the company to develop both – high-tech products and innovative manufacturing methods. Thanks to this set-up, technological innovations are rapidly translated into mass production. Thus Hanwha Q CELLS continues to set industrial standards – like the six-inch solar cell, the full square monocrystalline solar cell or the Q.ANTUM cell technology, not to speak of the Q CELLS Yield Security featuring Hot-Spot Protect, Anti-PID-Technology and Traceable Quality. Hanwha Q CELLS is a solar module manufacturer who successfully participates in the Quality Tested program of the German independent certification institute VDE, where repeated tests are mandatory. In addition to one of the largest technology centers in the industry, the company operates its own VDE-certified testing laboratory and tests its products under extreme conditions such as hail showers and desert heat. The outstanding Q CELLS quality “Engineered in Germany” has been proven by the 2013 PHOTON yield measurement: the Q.PRO-G2 solar module of Q CELLS completed this full year test as the best polycrystalline solar module among over 150 modules in the test.
