Trina Solar Vertex Modules Take Middle East Solar Market Into the Era of 500W+ Output

PVTIME – Trina Solar Co., Ltd ("Trina Solar" or the
"Company") has announced that it has signed a sales agreement with
the Yemeni photovoltaic firm Ai Raebi to supply 6MW of Vertex series modules to
high-efficiency distributed PV projects in the Middle East. The acquisition of
the order signals the degree to which the Vertex series modules will lead the Middle
East solar market into the era of 500W+ ultra-high power output, boosting the
local application of photovoltaic clean energy.

The Vertex series modules, with a conversion efficiency reaching 21%,
boast power output exceeding 500W. The modules come in bifacial double-glass
and back sheet versions, incorporating 210mm cells and integrating advanced
three-piece, non-destructive cutting and high-density packaging technologies
that feature high power output, high reliability, high efficiency and high
power generation. The optimized design of the Vertex series modules is
consistent with the current mainstream 400-450w modules in terms of heat spot
resistance and load performance, and has been designed so that the facilities
that adopt the series can be seamlessly connected to existing mainstream photovoltaic
systems, including the tracking solution.

Yemen is extraordinarily well positioned to benefit from the huge
potential of PV applications because it boasts rich light resources. The
country is in urgent need of best-of-breed PV products and solutions to address
the domestic electricity shortage. The general manager of Ai Raebi, Abdullah M.
Raebi, said: "Trina Solar currently ranks first in terms of market share
in Yemen, strongly supporting the country's efforts to respond to power needs
in the residential and commercial sectors. We are impressed by the Vertex
series modules and its 500W+ power output. We look forward to helping ease the
power shortage and accelerating the adoption of clean energy in Yemen with the
new modules."

Jimenez Antonio, head of the Middle East and Africa markets at Trina
Solar, said: "We are excited to be providing distributed PV projects with
our Vertex series modules, a series that is designed to address the pressing
demand for modules that can deliver the power, efficiency and reliability
needed in the Middle East. With the Vertex series, Trina Solar has taken an
important step towards maximizing customer value and setting a new benchmark
for ultra-high module power. We look forward to joining with our partners in
the global photovoltaic industry to embrace the 5.0 era as the 500W+ Vertex
series continues to attract attention worldwide."
