Trina Solar Limited Announces Supply of 200Mw Pv Modules to Zonergy Company Limited
Jul 9 14
Trina Solar Limited announced it will supply 200MW of modules to Zonergy Company Limited's downstream projects in China, marking its large single module supply agreement to date in 2014. Trina Solar will supply approximately 800,000 pieces of its TSM-PC05A modules for Zonergy's downstream projects located across several provinces in China such as Jiangsu, Shandong, Xinjiang, Qinghai and Sichuan. All modules supplied to Zonergy are certified by TUV-SUD as Anti-PID tested to 60(o) C/85RH% (85 Degrees Celsius temperature /85% relative humidity). Module delivery is expected to be completed in December 2014.
Trina Solar Limited to Showcase Trinasmart Panels as Well as PDG5 Frameless, Dual Glass Panels at Intersolar Conference
Jul 7 14
Trina Solar Limited announced that it will be taking part in this year's Intersolar conference to showcase its Trinasmart panels as well as its PDG5 frameless, Dual Glass panels. The company will also offer attendees a number of product demonstrations at its booth, #7411. The Trinasmart module features innovative power electronics from Tigo Energy to achieve module-level diagnostics and maximum energy harvest through module level DC power optimization. Integration of the module optimizer into the junction-box allows for up to 30% longer strings and significant balance of system (BOS) savings. The modules feature enhanced safety capabilities, which enable the system to shut down in the case of an emergency or maintenance. This complies with NEC requirements. In the case of an external fire, the modules can be totally deactivated, eliminating high voltages and improving safety during an emergency. The company's PDG5 frameless, Dual-Glass module is UL/IEC certified to 1,000V and requires no grounding. The module has two layers of 2.5mm heat-strengthened glass. Dual-glass provides the higher UL Fire safety rating and reduces micro-cracking, PID, module warping, UV aging, and corrosion. The modules' robust package protects cells during mechanical loading and shocks, minimizing micro-cracks that diminish module efficiency.
Trina Solar to Supply 60MW of PV Modules Including 25MW of Trina's Innovative Dual Glass Modules to Xinyi Solar in China
Jun 19 14
Trina Solar Limited announced it will supply 60MW of PV modules to Xinyi Solar Holdings Limited, one of the larger solar PV glass manufacturers, for its utility scale and agricultural greenhouse solar projects in Anhui, China. Xinyi Solar will utilize 5MW of Trina Solar's TSM-PC05A modules, 30MW of TSM-PC14 modules, as well as 25 MW of the Company's dual glass TSM-PDG5 modules. The PDG5 dual glass solar panel will be used as a roof bracing piece for an agricultural greenhouse located within Xinyi Solar's power plant in Anhui province. Compared to conventional modules, dual glass PDG5 modules provide appropriate transmittance of sun light, which better maintains greenhouse temperatures and its high performance in harsh environments offers resistance to the use of pesticide sprays in the greenhouse. Shipment of the modules is expected to be completed by August 2014. Trina Solar's PDG5 is a UL/IEC certified frameless module that comprises two layers of 2.5mm heat-strengthened glass. By replacing the plastic backsheet with heat-strengthened glass, PDG5 provides UL Fire Class A safety and reduces micro-cracking, Potential Induced Degradation (PID), module warping, UV aging, and corrosion from sand, acid, alkali and salt mist. The PDG5 is optimized for reliable performance under stressful environmental conditions and is among the most durable modules on the market. Additionally, by eliminating the aluminum frame of conventional modules, grounding requirements are eliminated, which can extend Balance of System (BoS) cost savings for Trina Solar's customers.
Trina Solar Announces Supply of 23MW of Modules to Linuo Solar Power's Distributed Generation (DG) Solar Project in China
Jun 16 14
Trina Solar Limited announced that it was selected to supply 23MW of PV modules to Linuo Solar Power Co. Ltd. Linuo Power's distributed generation (DG) solar project located in China's Shandong province. The project will utilize 92,000 Trina Solar TSM-250PC05A modules and cover 500,000 square meters of roof top. It is expected to produce 2,990 kWH of electricity annually and mitigate 28,674 tons of CO(2) emissions. The company expects shipments to be completed by the end of June 2014.
Tambo Real II Project Chooses Trina Solar Modules
May 29 14
Tambo Real II has reached completion with Trina Solar modules. This is the first solar project in Chile to be completely developed by a Chilean company. Kaltemp financed, developed and performed installation of this project. Kaltemp will use this project as their R&D lab and proving ground for technologies that fit the location's high desert conditions. Kaltemp chose to install 20kW (one inverter string) of Trina Solar's new PDG5 dual glass module. They will monitor the performance of the PDG5 module and compare its performance with that of the standard PC05 modules in the changing climatic conditions at the site throughout the year. The 2MW ground-mounted project is comprised of more than 8,500 Trina Solar PC05 panels. The project uses SMA supplied inverters and ABB transformation stations. Hilti provided mounting equipment for the system's solar modules. The project is Kaltemp's first foray into solar project development.
