Technology

Better is better.

We consistently rely on the benefits of state of the art technologies and smart ideas. Every Heckert Solar module delights thanks to its extremely high degree of efficiency, while being quick and easy to install. We have developed our own hollow-chamber profile for the especially warp-resistant frame. And the high-tech aluminium alloying withstands lots and lots of summers and winters. We ensure the frame and laminate are reliably bonded together by using innovative adhesive technology. Combined with the highly transparent and toughened ESG solar glass, we guarantee a resilience that goes far beyond the norm.

Location

Made in Germany.

We manufacture directly at our German site in Chemnitz – with a highly qualified, well-practised team. Because: It is from here that we can best fulfil our own standards in respect of quality, timeliness and ability to deliver. On the latest highly automated assembly lines, and with a nominal production plant manufacturing capacity of 400 MWp. Curious?
Have a look for yourself!

Solvency

Milestones

Highlights in the company’s history

  • Smart cooperation

    As part of the Fraunhofer ISE (Institute for Solar Energy Systems) CTM100+ project, Heckert was able to co-develop the SmartCal.CMT software – and harness it to coordinate materials and optimise cell performance.

  • Trust us

    In May 2017, Creditreform’s new CrefoZert creditworthiness certificate once again sends a clear, positive signal to partner businesses.

  • Repeated distinction

    Only a few companies ever receive the coveted ‘Top Brand Photovoltaics’ seal from EuPD Research – But Heckert Solar has already received it for the fifth time.

  • Powerful performance

    The new high-performance NeMo® 2.0 module goes on sale. It scores highly in Mono, Mono Black and Poly versions, thanks to improved performance due to the modern 5-busbar technology.

  • Greater capacity

    Thanks to partnership with the battery manufacturer VARTA Storage, Heckert Solar is able to expand its product range to include a further high quality energy storage system.

  • New opportunities

    Heckert Solar succeeds with expanded product range. In the middle of the year, the monocrystalline NeMo® 60 M is introduced – just in time for the Intersolar trade fair in Munich. At the same time, it is introduced in the popular Black version.

  • Complete trust

    For the sixth time in a row, Bisnode has awarded Heckert Solar its top rating. Europe’s leading provider of digital business information therefore once again confirms: Heckert Solar is one of Germany’s most creditworthy businesses.

  • Crowning highlight

    The repowering project on the roof of the Federal Chancellery in Berlin: When renovating the system, the Dresden-based specialist partner MR Sun-Strom decided to renew the existing photovoltaic system – and to use Heckert Solar’s NeMo® 60 P solar modules.

  • Fresh energy

    On the roof of the Berlin Museum of Technology, Heckert Solar’s modules now produce the museum’s green energy all year round, using 180 NeMo® 60 P polycrystalline photovoltaic modules. That saves 24 tonnes of CO₂ per year.

  • Leading position

    In 2016 too, Heckert Solar GmbH can be considered to be one of the leading producers of solar modules. Once again, EuPD Research awarded the company the ‘Top Brand Photovoltaics’ seal.

  • Perfect complement

    With immediate effect, Heckert Solar is in partnership with the Hamburg-based internationally renowned manufacturer of the S:FLEX photovoltaics mounting systems. The frame manufacturer’s product portfolio covers all requirements for the widest range of solar projects.

  • Targeted expansion

    In October, Heckert begins to increase production capacity from 240 MWp per year to a planned approximate capacity of 300 MWp per year. This investment also sees the start of the gradual change to 4/ 5-busbar cell technology.

  • Legal Form

    On 3 December 2014, Heckert Solar AG will change its legal form back to Heckert Solar GmbH. The company remains in 100% ownership of the Trinkerl family.

  • New module

    In March 2014, Heckert Solar introduces the new 60-cell high performance NeMo® 60 P module. This module, with its power of 265 Wp and module efficiency of up to 16.3%, offers benefits for larger roof and free-standing systems, and reduces material costs and installation costs.

  • Change of management

    As part of a generational change, on 28 March 2013 Benjamin Trinkerl assumes operational management of Heckert Solar AG. As sole shareholder, the previous chairman Xaver Trinkerl remains with the company as a member of the supervisory board.

  • Desert Project

    For the very first time, Heckert Solar exports solar modules to the Algerian desert. The 112 kWp system comprises 85 off-grid systems for supplying power to telecommunications and radio broadcast stations.

  • Salzburg’s largest

    Heckert Solar supplies 414 NeMo® P modules for Salzburg’s largest public solar power system. The photovoltaic system on the roof of the Federal Commercial Academy in Zell am See was put into operation in early October 2012.

  • Continued success

    Heckert Solar successfully completes a pilot project in Turkey: Since the end of June 2012, a 63 kW system has been supplying power for Turkey’s largest tractor manufacturer in Ankara.

  • Top quality

    Audit marathon spread over several days: Heckert Solar’s management systems are now ISO and OHSAS-certified. In May 2012, Heckert Solar successfully completed the group certification for quality management, environmental management and occupational safety management.

  • Longer guarantee

    11-year product guarantee for Heckert Solar modules. Once again, automation considerably increases series quality.

  • Better together

    Heckert Solar deploys innovative adhesive technology. Modules produced by Heckert Solar demonstrate increased durability and sturdiness thanks to the use of a special 2-component adhesive.

  • On top

    From April 2010, Heckert Solar AG now has at its disposal an in-roof system. With the Schweizer company’s SOLRIF® in-roof installation system, standard solar laminates become PXL200 solar roof tiles.

  • Moving earth

    December sees the start of ground works for the new 300 MWp factory, in order to meet increasing demand for Heckert Solar’s high performance modules.

  • Legal form

    In October, and with retrospective effect from 1 January, the company changes its legal form to Heckert Solar AG. The Trinkerl family holds all shares in the non-listed limited company, and company founder and previous managing director Xaver Trinkerl becomes the chairman.

  • Four wins

    In May, production in Factory II switches to 4-shift operation. So now, for the first time, high-performance modules will be produced at the Chemnitz site around the clock on every day of the week, in order to satisfy increasing demand. Heckert Solar currently boasts a nominal capacity of 90 MWp per year.

  • Foundations laid

    In August, foundations are laid for the four-storey administration and logistics centre directly linked to Factory II.

  • Fully automatic

    In July, with the completion of a second fully automated production line, production capacity in Factory II is now increased to 60 MWp per year.

  • New factory

    In March, foundations for Factory II are laid at a new site in Chemnitz. Following the record construction time of just five months, the manufacturing site with a capacity of 20 MWp per year is put into operation. The entire frame production facilities and administration remain in Factory I.

  • Number one

    On 1 September, Heckert Solar in Chemnitz produces its first polycrystalline photovoltaic module. Maximum capacity of 6 MWp per year is reached just a short time after production commences. Rapid market success and constantly growing demand require an increase in production capacity, and enable the construction of a new factory to be planned.

  • The beginning

    On 26 November, Xaver Trinkerl founds Heckert-B.X.T. Solar GmbH in Chemnitz. Over the following two years, along with a team of technologists and engineers, in Factory I he develops one of the world’s first fully automatic soldering machines, among other things.
