No it doesn't. You need two versions of HE, and that still leaves you with a 15 second window of not having HE up. Not only that, but I'm almost certain that the Peng debuff isn't countered by the HE healing ticks, only the initial application of HE. The Peng debuff lasts 12 seconds before the secondary explosion, and you're applying a new debuff every ~3 seconds. Even a ship with a single Peng can't be countered every time.

That said, there are ways to mitigate the damage of the secondary explosions. high kinetic resistance should do the trick. Polarize Hull, Aux to ID, Armor. Staying 3+ km away from allied ships reduces the AoE damage. Lots of ways to reduce Peng pain. People will figure this stuff out eventually.
