Sustainability

Sustainable Manufacturing of Solar Modules.

Our central claim is the sustainable production of solar modules. Heckert Solar was already certified according to ISO 14001: 2015 on the subject of environmental management in 2018. With a Heckert Solar 330 Wp module, approx. 155 kg CO2 can be saved per year.

Did you know that Heckert Solar …

  • minimizes CO2 emissions with the “Made in Germany” PV modules.
  • produced exclusively with electricity from our own PV system and additionally purchased green electricity.
  • has been certified for the sustainable production of solar modules.
  • works according to German quality, labor and environmental standards.
  • has converted the in-house PV open space into a biotope solar park.
  • covers a large part of their water consumption through rainwater.
  • is committed to the sustainable use of resources.

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

Put your trust in us.

You can also rely on constant “outstanding business strength” and especial financial stability. Since 2011, both have been regularly honoured by top rating certificates – currently by the Creditreform agency.
We have been continuously awarded top rating certificates since 2011.

Robust, powerful, high quality.

We work solely with certified materials from leading manufacturers. All modules are supplied with greater output than stated and are TÜV-certified – including construction type and safety certificate, salt spray corrosion test and tests for ammonia resistance. The TÜV-certified snow load is 5,400 Pa (test load 8,100 Pa). Every module bears the CE mark (Conformité Européenne). We supply the NeMo® range with an 11-year product guarantee, extendable up to 15 or 20 years, and a performance guarantee of 90% for 10 years and 80% for 25 years.

    Heckert Solar receives CSTB certification for HS P SOLRIF® modules. The certification process for the SOLRIF® modules, which are suitable for roof integration, was successfully completed in November 2011.

  • EFFECTIVE PASTES

    The hightech production from Heckert Solar modules relies on high-tech silver conductive pastes from DuPont™. Heckert Solar has been using the conductive pastes of the Solamet® PV17x product family since their introduction in February 2011. So Heckert Solar can confirm an increase of cellefficiency, better processreliability and increased productivity.

  • TOP RATED

    In January 2011 Heckert Solar received the TOP RATING certificate from Hoppenstedt. According the CreditCheck the manufacturer of modules was one of the 3.3% best-rated companies in Germany.

  • LETS GO

    Starting in November Heckert Solar will produce the HS-PXL * module, an upgrade of the previous standard modules from Heckert Solar. The HS-PXL is an precursor to the new NeMo module, which is available from mid-August 2011.

  • GOOD PURPOSE

    During a visit to the plant Frank Kupfer (the Saxon State Minister for Environment and Agriculture) presented the company's founder and board member, Xaver Trinkerl, the certificate for admission on the Saxony Environmental Alliance.

  • 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.

  • WITH SEAL

    The modules from Heckert Solar AG receive the TÜV certificate IEC / EN61701 for successfully passing from the salt mist corrosion test.

  • REALLY SATISFIED

    In February 2010 Heckert Solar received an score of 2.15 in the customer satisfaction test, which is 0.4 points above the average. This Test was conducte by the market research institute EuPD.

  • 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.

  • NICE AND NEW

    In April the new administration and logistics center with a total floor space of 3,600 m² is occupied.

  • 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.
