NovoVellum® your key to powerful modules
NovoPolymers manufactures encapsulants (EVA), a crucial component in modules and supplies to module manufacturers cutting-edge encapsulating solutions. By combining the best module sealing capabilities with added power output optimizations, the highest possible yield can be achieved across all aspects. NovoVellum® encapsulants are designed to improve module efficiency and bring undeniable added value to modules, quantifiable in higher sales margins for module manufacturers.
Fixed ground mounted polycrystalline silicon array
NovoPolymers incorporated their ultra-performant encapsulant NovoVellum® LEF01 with NovoVellum® HFW01 into a polycrystalline silicon array.
The most unique encapsulants to date
Module manufacturers are always on the lookout for new ways to increase the efficiency of their modules. Encapsulants are no longer solely protecting cells and modules, they can do a lot more than what they used to do and are becoming an active, power increasing indispensable component.
NovoPolymers’ latest patented innovation, NovoVellum® LEF01, manipulates light with different wavelengths and optimizes the light transmission to the solar cells to put all harvested sunlight to maximal use.
A strategy to maximize the energy conversion efficiency to its fullest potential on the encapsulant level: In this module array NovoPolymers paired NovoVellum® LEF01, the novel light optimizing front encapsulant with a highly reflective back encapsulant, NovoVellum® HFW01. This encapsulation combination is the ultimate solution to module manufacturers for bringing more power to the modules and increasing to higher power classes.
This means by simply switching out standard EVA encapsulants with NovoVellum® encapsulants, leaving all other components the same, can significantly improve the efficiency.

Notes on the Data
Monitoring Interruption for UPS Battery Replacement
The disconnection and re-connection of the solar arrays and weather station equipment while a new site connection was being established prompted the already flattening UPS batteries which power the site’s energy meters to fail and require immediate replacement. Data recording was affected from approximately 2.30pm ACST, Monday 10 July to 4.00pm, Wednesday 12 July.
Affects weather data for DKASC, Alice Springs
Partial System Outage
One of the major switchboards at the DKASC lost power yesterday 01/12/2016 at ~11:00 am. This isolated and shutdown array sites 23 through to 37 inclusive. The switchboard was re-energised at ~16:30 today (02/12/2016) and is again operating normally. Data for this period for these sites is lost.
Site 36: Intermittent outages
The micro inverter settings for the Novopolymer array were incorrectly changed in early November 2016. This has resulted in the intermittent shutdowns of these inverters up o and including 29th November 2016. This has been corrected on the 29th November 2016 and this issue should now resolve itself.
