Trina Solar Unveils Vertex 600W Series Module and Expects Mass Production of 550W Series Later in Year

PVTIME - Trina Solar Co., Ltd ('Trina Solar" or the "Company") has announced the launch of two next-generation Vertex series modules with power output of up to 600W. The company expects to realize the mass production of a 550W series in the final quarter of this year. 

Several representatives of upper, middle and lower streams of the
industrial value chain of the 600W+ Photovoltaic Open Innovation
Ecological Alliance, representing manufacturers of silicon, wafers,
cells, modules, trackers, inverters, materials and equipment, took part
in a launch event and witnessed the new next-generation Vertex series

Dr Zhang Yingbin, Head of Product Strategy and Value Management at
Trina Solar, said at the event: "The next-generation Vertex modules
enhanced by a host of forward-looking innovations, including a 210mm
silicon wafer, high-density packaging and multi-busbar technologies,
deliver photoelectric conversion efficiency of more than 21 percent. By
virtue of low-voltage and high-module string power output, the new
Vertex series unlocks huge potential for further reducing
balance-of-system costs. By collaborating with key players across the
industry chain, we believe the Vertex modules developed on the basis of a
new technology platform will help reduce the levelized cost of energy
across various applications and maximize customer value." 

The next-generation Vertex series modules hold three key advantages,
including: the combination of non-destructive cutting, high-density
packaging and multi-busbar technologies; low voltage and improvement in
power output of a single module string by more than 35 percent; and
significant value in greatly reducing balance-of-system costs.

Cao Bo, vice general manager and
executive vice president of Trina Solar, said: "To create a high-quality
module product that excels in the market with comprehensive
functionalities, we needed to take into account each process across the
industry chain, the ultimate goal being to maximize value for customers
by improving the power output of the modules and increasing power
generation. We are honored that the next-generation Vertex series, built
on the basis of a new and forward-looking technology platform, has been
recognized by key partners across the photovoltaic industry chain. As
one of the members of the 600W+ Photovoltaic Open Innovation Ecological
Alliance, Trina Solar is devoted to working with others in the industry
to promote the sustainable development of the sector."
